chaos is the word I would use to describe this school. Many of the teachers are amazing, but the subs are completely incompetent I had one that skipped over a lesson because she didn't know how to do it. there are frequent fights and the teachers have little to know control. the lunch procedures are ridiculous and many times I find that we don't have time to eat because they are so set on every student being quiet before we are released (which never happens) I believe that they are putting so much money into the avid program they are letting the rest of the school crumble. Let's not forget how the ENTIRE School changed when the avid review team came. They had us doing these stupid procedures I had never even heard of. If your child doesn't have thick skin, don't send them here. Timberwood will chew them up and spit them out.

I found TMS an okay school. I didn't like how kids slipped through the cracks (and don't get in trouble), the dress code is too strict and some of the dress code is down right ridiculous! Another thing, lunch, hallways, and classrooms are crowded. Some of the rules are very stupid, like for the fact that we can't have any backpacks! We don't even have a locker! The school will take up any other bag if it's not a drawstring. Which I didn't like. One last thing is morning procedures, and our lunch dismal procedure need to be changed, and that most teachers don't have a very good control over their students

i love attending timberwood. most of the teachers are very nice. i have had only 1 bad experience but i have learned to ignore it. the councelers are really nice and help you with any proublem, the principles are also there for you at lunch, or in the hallways for anybody who has a question or needs help. they are very nice!

Your child is merely a face in the crowd at TMS. While obnoxious behavior may be typical of middle school students, it is rampant here and really undermines the educational experience. Teachers have very little control over their classrooms, and a student can easily fall through the cracks. Not impressed.

Timberwood in my opinion sets the standard for what our children deserve. The leadership is focused on the children,they are the priority. Excellent teachers with a passion for encouraging the kids to dream and reach for their goals. The teachers and staff believe in these kids and they tell them so. Panthers are succeeders because of the integrity and expectations of the leadership. Thank you Mrs. Atwood!

Timberwood is a fantastic, highly-educated school.Respect is a very important principle,and the students are diciplined fairly according to their actions.

I was raised in a poorer district than that of this, and have found, while some of the things done here are great for the students well being, others are a bit offcolor for me, but, that is just me. The steady including of the parents when the child misbehaves, and the sturdy hand taken with the behavior is applauded. I feel that it is a great thing for my child.

I believe TMS is a good school. However, I believe it would be better and you, as a parent, would feel more comfortable with the school, teachers and overall environment, if you become a volunteer. I had fears of the school at first, but by volunteering some of my fears have diminished. I believe the principal is trying very hard for the kids to have a safe environment in order for our children to earn a valuable education. Successful schools are built by staff, faculty, parents, students and the community. Get Involved! Even though you may think that your child does not want to see your face at the middle school, believe me I think they are relieved that you are there. Even when other parents are not there, if I know a neighbor child, they even seem more relaxed knowing they know there is a parent on campus.

I am new to this District. However, I don't like what I have seen, as of yet. There is some stereotyping as to the race of a child. I don't like the attitude some of the teachers have displayed with some of the minority children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
