    "Since this is the only Christian school in the area, families wanting their children to get Christian education is stucked with it. Although the school strives for excellence in athletics, there is barely any effort at all in helping out students achieve academic excellence. The guidance office is pretty much non-existent which is a big disservice to the students and their families. Many graduates leave the school without any clue what to do in college because the school has no program to help students prepare for college and the after-life outside Timothy. Most graduates enroll in college as "undecided". Standardized test scores are disappointing and passing rates for AP classes are not impressive. It does not help when teachers say that test results are "not too bad", which translates to mediocrity. The tuition is competitive with other private schools in the area, but students who go to the other private schools get so much more than what Timothy can offer. Timothy Is good for those families who put more value in athletics than academics. You will get more electronic correspondences about athletic events than academic achievements and improvements, even in the summer."

    "Very disappointed with this school: academics, discipline, extra curricular, clubs, teachers, administration..... so many things are sub par and below standard. Sports though they're always trying to improve. Lots of parents are very frustrated with the school, but feel like they're stuck here just because there are not many other Christian schools around for them to switch their kids to. Especially in the last 2 -3 years, quite a few teachers are constantly angry and in a bad mood, yelling and showing so little patience and grace...Where are the godly examples? This school has undergone many administrative changes there's very little consistency. Curriculum has changed many times, teacher turn over rate is high, students have little school spirit and sense of pride. Got rid of enrichment programs and have had budget cuts that even high school AP courses are affected. The list is long."

    "Great administration and communication. Teachers care and are very involved in many activities, great athletic program. Evident that school is trying to raise the bar academically---would like to see more oversight of what is actually going on in classrooms, quality and level of teaching."

    "This school is beyond awful. As a student who left in favor of trying out public school years ago, I can tell you that although TCS claims to be a "college preparatory" school, I came to find out that my new peers in public school were light years ahead of me. It took an extreme amount of time and effort to reach the academic level that my new school demanded of me, but I am forever grateful that I transferred as I would have certainly failed in any attempt at college had I not been forced to improve. As far as the atmosphere at this school, I'm not sure I can find the right words to describe what I experienced there. Looking back, I can only recall bigoted teachers preaching the importance of not associating with Catholics and Jews during science class and also coming to find out that those same teachers were into trash talking with students about their peers. This school was an absolutely miserable experience and I can't stress strongly enough that there are plenty of private and public schools in New Jersey that will be more suited to produce a happy, academically successful student."
