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!

Timmerman is involved in several community projects around the state. These include: Soup Kitchens, Toys for Tots, The Salvation Army, Animal Shelters, Retirement Homes, and many more. When a child can see how he or she has impacted another person's life in a positive way, the child is changed forever. We strive to promote a culture of compassion and caring beginning with a student's first day and continuing all the way through his or her last day at the 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.

I would like to say thank you to any parent at this school who is trying to teach their child right from wrong. You are in an uphill battle considering your child's peers, so you need all the encouragement you can get.

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

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

This school encourages children to persist in socially unacceptable ways. It is a dog-eat-dog environment. These kids are determined to beat each other down, not build each other and their school up.

Neither respect for other students or adults is expected by this school. It is shocking the way the children from this school behave out in public when they are on field trips or on a summer outing. Relentless tauniting of others is the status quo of students from this school. Children in the upper school are very immature for their age.

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.

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.
