The school over all is great. Most of the teachers are fun and enthusiastic and make learning intresting. It is verry nice school inside and out. Amazing sports and art programs that are fun to join. And there are great elective classes that they offer. There is also many fun activities like dances, PTA movies, provided by the school. however there are cons of the school. socially timberlines has so many cliques, students are not as accepting of others. Being LDS is a huge thing in the school and it sometimes becomes a problem if your not LDS. All in all timberline is a fun and great education school

Timberline Middle School is a great school! The teachers and staff care about each student and their academic and personal growth. The school is very clean and inviting. I am so glad that my children attend Timberline.

I have had four children attend Timberline Middle School, and love the school. All of my children have excelled in their classes and have had very positive attitudes about school. This is not an easy thing to accomplish with 12 through 15 year olds. The teachers for the most part really teach and have high expectations for their students. My children have all gone on to high school very prepared and have been able to take AP classes and pass the tests, and I feel it is primarily because of the special attention given to the students at Timberline. Succeeding is a goal for most that attend Timberline. At least it has been that way with my children and their circle of friends. I would completely reccommend Timberline to anyone who asked.

My son is in his second year at Timberline. I have been very impressed with all of the teachers and administration! The student body is clearly made up of primarily privileged kids, but overall, they seem to be very welcoming, kind and motivated. The teachers expect a lot of the students, which I appreciate!

My daughter is a student at Timberline Middle School. She is on the student council as well. She always comes home with a positive attitude and good news about grades and school work. My daughter has told me she is very glad she goes to Timberline, because its a safe and positive learning enviroment with a splashes of fun everywhere around!

The principal as well as assistant principals are very involved and fun. The teachers are as a whole very good, with absolutely brilliant choir and english teachers, though there are a few very unreasonable teachers who lack teaching ability. Arts programs are very effective with iron chef contests held regularly for cooking classes and a great musical program in which Timberline singing groups have taken state regularly. The sports programs are pretty disappointing. While PE coaches are very good, the sports teams; basketball and tennis, are very small and exclusive. The third sport, track, is on the other side of the spectrum with such large groups that personal improvement is not often accomplished. At Timberline students feel safe and protected. Student council races are very exciting for everyone. And as a former student I had a great time and would highly recommend Timberline Middle School to any parent.
