Timberline is a great school! It is one of the most diverse high schools in the North Thurston Public School District, with communities of students belonging to many different ethnicities, as well as LGBTQ+ safe communities. The teachers create a welcoming, warm atmosphere and are supportive of their students in every way possible. One of the only inconveniences I came across when at Timberline was that the arts programs are not as supported financially as the sports programs. Despite this, I enjoyed all four years as a student, and band geek, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a welcoming, inclusive high school!

Timberline High School is an amazing school. As a military child I have experienced a multitude of schools in my lifetime and I honestly have to say that Timberline is my favorite. From the beautiful new design of the school to the friendly and welcoming students and staff. I was easily able to adjust and I was welcomed into the Blazer family. I highly recommend Timberline if you are looking for a high school that you want to remember! We are all around a very diverse school that helps you prepare for postsecondary school life.
My overall experience at Timberline High School was pretty good. I unfortunately had to move my senior year of high school, so I only attend Timberline through my senior year of high school. But when I transfered to Timberline I was ahead in credits so I got to graduate after my first semester at the high school! All of the teachers were absolutely lovely, the environment was welcoming, and the property was beautiful!
