School Official Point of View

This school is one of the top educating institutions in the state. With a student body of less than 300, they are still extremely competitive....both academically and athletically. They win local, region, and state awards EVERY single year. The Principal and Middle School Head were even recognized in 2016 with two of the highest honors offered from the South Carolina Independent School Association. Over 70% of the faculty has a masters degree in their respective fields. If you are looking for a great place to send your child, then look no more.....You have found "The Road to Success" at Timmerman School!

There is a bullying culture at this school. The kids are out of control. This school teaches their curriculum and turns a blind eye to the social culture they are breeding. If your goal is to raise a child who is respectful and kind to others, avoid this school. If your child is not the one being bullied, he/she will become a bully to others in order to fit in. Many parents have removed their children for this very reason.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Effective at teaching. Ineffective at classroom control and guiding thei students to mature in a commendable way.

Amount of homework: Agree

Their test scores reveal their success in teaching their curriculum. Homework is a part of learning. The right amoiunt is being assigned.

When I was enrolling in Timmerman the school principal made you feel welcome. Now when they see you they walk by and don't speak at all. Not very friendly all the staff is family and money hungry. Parents don't have a say if there is a problem.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

The teacher are al family and I feel that if their is a real concern it is biased. A teacher slammed a door in my face and the principle did nothing.

Timmerman is an excellent school with very high standards. Our child has been there for 7 years and we couldn't be more pleased. He has two teachers, each with their masters degree. Public schools could never compare to the wonderful education our child is getting coupled with small class size and a principal that will sit down with you anytime you need

Because this is a private school, " teachers" don't have to be accredited. It bothers me that private schools can have such " teachers". Summer staff is rude. You rarely see interaction. Every time I pick up my child the staff is sitting down.

The school needs some updating. The rooms are old looking and cramped, small. The mosquitos are horrible there and no one wants to take care of this. The kids come home with so many bug bites. Roaches outside- how many get in? They need to welcome 2014 and get a real accountant and not a "book keeper". Quicken books would do wonders! Check your accounts and lunches you ask for.... the playground equipment probably would not pass inspection. the water fountain outside has not worked in years. Needs a big make over!

I was a student there from the 2004-2005 year up until the 2012-2013 year when I was in 4tb grade I say t was a good school but there were not many real teachers with degrees other than that and bulling in the 13-14 5th Graders which most left it was great
