    "In reading these reviews, it's like some of you are talking about some other school--not the TTE on Castle Pines Pkwy in Douglas County. Here's my experience at TTE--classes with 30+ kids, no homework pretty much ever, no communication from teachers regarding what's being covered or tests/projects/etc. The trouble isn't just an issue with the teacher. The class size makes it pretty impossible to help anyone excel--but it particularly penalizes the brightest students. I suppose I might feel differently if I just trusted the school to do a good job. I firmly believe that it is important to have active parental interaction during the educational process to support the learning. It is through being informed about what is going on in the classroom that a parent has the opportunity to work one-on-one with their child to solidify the learning that takes place at school. It is at home that we have an opportunity to clear up any leftover things that aren't learned solidly in class. This doesn't happen at TTE. They pretend that it does, when clearly it doesn't. I guess that having a truly exceptional school before TTE has ruined the facade that TTE portrays to the unsuspecting parent."

    "My son attended Timber Trail for a little more than a semester before extenuating circumstances moved us to a new area. My son's 1st grade teacher was absolutely phenomenal. I am also a teacher (different school), and I loved so many of her ideas that I implemented them in my own classroom. She was creative, compassionate, and organized. Already above grade level upon entering the school, my son's math and writing skills improved significantly in his short time there. The office staff was very friendly and seemed to know every student by name. The principal, Michele Radke, was incredibly professional, caring, and compassionate. Ms. Radke made me feel so welcome in her office, I felt like I could talk with her about pretty much anything. I also met many parents at students' birthday parties, and I did not think they were "snobby" at all (as an earlier post claims). The school grounds are immaculate and the school environment is welcoming and warm. I cannot speak highly enough about Timber Trail. My son's new school is rated a "10" on this website, but I still reminisce about his time at TTE."

    "After a not-so-great experience at a nearby charter school for K-1st, we anxiously moved our daughter to TTE for 2nd-5th grades. This was the best decision we could have made!! Our daughter was given the extra help that she needed and was also challenged in the areas she showed a need for. The teachers and staff are amazing, professional and have given our daughter more than an outstanding education. I can't say enough good things about this school! Our daughter is in her last week at TTE before moving to 6th grade at RHMS and it's a bittersweet end for us. Thank you TTE for doing a wonderful job teaching our children, helping them to be kind leaders, harboring confidence and for preparing them for their next chapter."

    "We have been at Timber Trail for three years and have been impressed by the commitment of the staff as well as the broad offering of enrichment activities (science club, book club, lego enginereering, running club, choir, band and others). In addition, the TTEA (pta) does a great job with both fun activities and fundraising. We are happy to have our kids at Timber Trail and to be part of the TTE community."

    "What a huge mistake! We moved from out of state and chose Timber Trail based solely on test scores. They don't challenge kids. It's like the teachers just get by with what they have to teach. There is no communication between teacher and parent. There is no way a child can excel at this school."
