The atmosphere is one of a kind, super accepting and supportive. The teachers are Really amazing! Experience like no other. A lot of variety of activities (including: sports, music programs, and many different clubs). The sense of community is astounding. They have made all three years for me something wonderful. Getting to connect with outstanding individuals, weather that be class mates, teachers or staff. Really great school.

Timberline High School has been a great school to attend to further my career in academics. It's been the number one public school for public education in Idaho the last two years. I've had the opportunity to raise over $1,000 for our local children's hospital because of one leadership class Timberline has to offer. The class known as Wolf Connection, focuses on connecting our students to both the school and the community. We get the opportunity to visit senior citizens twice a month and a group of fourth graders twice a month as well for lunch. Timberline teaches our students to have great values by spreading kindness throughout the school as well as out in the community!
Timberline is great. Everyone is really welcoming, except for a few individuals, but what high school doesn't have those. I do wish more participated in school spirit weeks, etc., everyone does try to support Timberline in all of their various activities; whether that be sports or the arts programs. Teachers are always there if you have questions and do an excellent job at getting their students to understand concepts. I always feel safe at Timberline. I have never had a moment where I felt like my safety was at danger. Timberline provides a great learning environment where all can succeed.
