Timber Creek High School Reviews

I moved to Florida last October. Starting at a new school in the middle of the year is not always the easy, especially as a teenager. The students and facility were very welcoming and made me feel at home. There is a strong sense of unity throughout the school. The teachers are attentive to all types of students and their academic needs. My school offers an incredible variety of classes. For instance, the inspiring Computer Science program. I was introduced to a beautiful world full of binary and programming competitions. Not only do I have access to a wonderful education, but hundreds of clubs at my fingertips. From Helping The Homeless to Key Club to Cancer Awareness Society, there are countless organizations to ensure each and every student has the opportunity to get involved in the community and make new friends. Timber Creek High School offers every student the ability to move forward and succeed.
Timber Creek High School provides many opportunities such as rigorous classes, dual enrollment, diverse clubs, and a high quality fine arts department. I have only had a few teachers who didn't teach to my style of learning. I've taken many AP classes. The teacher's prepare students for AP exams very well; there are only a few subjects where my friends have struggled because their teacher hadn't prepared them properly for the exam. If you build a relationship with your guidance counselor they'll help you determine which classes are best for you. A student can take an independent study in any honors or regular class that has a course code. You just have to ask the teacher you'd like to do the study with. Build relationships with your teacher's and they'll be happy to provide a letter of recommendation for college. applications.
As in college or anywhere, some subjects and academics can be a hit or miss depending upon the teacher. However most teachers (in my experience and others) are great or excellent. Some have a genuine care and concern that you are successful, and overall the school strives to promote success toward college. I took all AP and honors classes at the school so I am speaking on behalf of the more rigorous education. Also a lot of different things to get involved with on campus (and students can just as easily start up their own clubs and activities) and the food is what's expected of high school food.
Definitely a good high school for motivated, success-oriented students.
