This is a great school. I'm glad my parents took me out of Olympia High School and enrolled me here. It's waaaayyyyy better than most schools in the area and they offer more stuff for free. This year, they have brand new chrome books in all of my classes for everyone to use. They give us a lot of freedom here so military parents don't like it because they want a school to be as strict as they are at home. All those kids goof off' at school and it's annoying to the rest of us. I wish those parents would just lighten up at home and quit posting negative reviews on this awesome school! I was struggling academically at another school my freshman year so my parents moved me here when I was a sophomore because of all the extra help you can get at Timberlinel. I am now an 'A' student and planning to enroll in 'running start'. After I graduate, I am going to UW. This school has many kinds of people, all races, religions and family incomes. Everyone gets along here and is just 'really cool'. I'd say this school is very down to earth and fun. Everyone is always willing to help someone else, whether it be school work or something personal. I am Proud to be a Blazer!! Class of '16!!!
Timberline is a horrible school and that is putting it nicely. Kids are allowed to smoke in front of the school. I asked about this and was told by the principal that it was off school property and they had no control over that. The teacher and administrative staff have no control over the school. A child can act out all the time with no consequences. They will just give them another chance. I regret ever sending my child to this place. This high school should be banned from existence. The staff should be all fired. If there are any out the considering sending your child to this school, don't do it!
I'm still going to this school. This school isn't one of the best schools out there, there's more drugs and drug dealers and fights at this school then south sound. they set you up to fail that's why this year only half of the seniors graduate which is normal for this school. teachers don't care nor help if you ask they don't care so you watch YouTube all the time that's how we learn. teachers don't even stay in the classroom one of my teachers would leave or not even show up, this school is one of the worst schools out there and I don't recommend going to it if you want to succeed
My four children all successfully graduated from Timberlin. My '04 & '07 grads would have benefitted from more structure, howeve twins graduated in '11, enjoyed the autonomy, and maximized their opportunities. One went on to play Volleyball forCommunity College in Florida, the other earned an academic scholorship and is atteng University of Washington. As an Air Force Recruiter, I regularly visited all schools in the region. Timberline is the best HS in North Thurston School District. (Capitol & Olympia are both great Olympia School District High Schools. (Spacing errors due to cell phone/ app). :-)
This school i was enrolled in was very good but they didn't have a good system to help students out that really struggled with academics but overall i liked this school
This school was horrible. The teachers screamed 24/7 and never taught us anything. I was constantly bullied, only for me to get in trouble. Not a accepting school.
i freaking love this school everyone is friendly and my family went to this school i feel very welcome as a freshman at Timberline! -Ailini Hood
I love this school.It makes it simple for me to learn and have a good time.Many might think that our scores are low.Thats not because of the teachers it is because of the student.I love the teachers and our curriculum.
I was a homeschooled student coming into Timberline, and I could not imagine a more welcoming environment! I absolutely love it, and I hope any other students considering going here know that we are an intelligent and inclusive student body - there are no cliques.
School is not interesting and boring. Site needs to be updated and they need to spend more attention on the needs around the school
I have two kids attending this school, and they are completely bored, not challenged in the classroom, and the school has weakest sports program. The teachers are not pushing college entrance and lack communication with the Parent's. They seem to rely on the Family Access Page as a means of keeping you informed. I am pulling them out this year, and regret ever being involved.
We move around a lot and I think this is the best school i've ever been to! the teachers are friendly and the extracurricular activities are great!! the building itself doesn't look good but they're trying their best to make it better!
Timberline High School is a great school and the best fr academics in North Thurston Public Schools. It has every sport imaginable for fall, Winter, and Spring. Activities are always going on and are highly recommended to students. Every Wednesday there is an activity period for clubs, sports, doing homework, or talking to friends. There are many art and music programs available as it is a required credit a student must take to graduate. All in all, this is a very good school especially for the area of Lacey.
The school physically could use some improvement, but we have the most supportive, friendly teachers in the world and more extra-curricular clubs than I have ever seen in any school. I can't stress enough how much the teachers care about every student and their needs. They will become not just educators, but friends, to as many students as they can.
An excellent school - especially in science - the best school in the county
