    "I have always had a very good experience with all staff members of this school. It's refreshing to have a principal who truly cares about the students and their families. She knows each child's name including their parents and also siblings who aren't in the school yet. She attends almost all the events and although she may not make it to some sports games, she'll pop into their practices to show some support. I don't blame her for taking some time for herself. I really don't know how she does it with the many hours she puts in (not leaving until after 8pm most nights) but I really appreciate her dedication and the way she cares about the school as a whole. The office secretary is the backbone of the school. She is always friendly and welcoming. She is the go-to person for whatever you need or question you have. There is nothing she can't do. I have always had pleasant interactions with her. She is truly amazing and treats your child as if they were hers. I feel very fortunate to have my children in a school that is safe, nurturing and has a great academic focus."

    "I am an alumni of St. Timothy (and Catholic education all the way through College) and now my child goes here. I have seen this school go through many principals - some of them terrible. I have seen this school when there was absolutely no community involvement. I am very impressed at the unity and diversity the school demonstrates. Ms Timmons is doing the best she can and in my opinion doing a fabulous job. She is not superwoman and attend every single event YOU think she should be at. She also has to answer to the Archdiocese which is where the negative comments should be directed. They are messing up all the important work the Catholic School principals have been accomplishing. As far as the school secretary goes I know she has been there for approximately 30 years. She has been what has kept many families in the school...especially in the years of bad leadership and NO leadership at all. She has an institutional memory that should be respected. Again...let me ask the question...maybe it's you? Be respectful and that is what you will get in return. Catholic School 101."

    "The office is VERY difficult to deal with. The are EXTREMELY poor communicators & when you follow up with any questions you have they have an attitude about it. The teachers are okay but it is really hard to go to a school where you are unable to rely on working cohesively with the office. The office speaks poorly of parents who have too many questions and are very vocal about it. Many families are fed up with the direction of the school and the lack of professionalism under the new Principal so I think enrollment will continue to decline until there are changes. There are good teachers everywhere - why not go to a school that has a better office environment!"

    "Our family has been extremely pleased with St Timothy's school. The teachers truly care about our children's education and keep us informed of progress in the classroom. The Principal, Miss Timmons, has always been so welcoming. She amazes us on how she remembers every student and parent's name. She has an open door policy and encourages ideas/suggestions. The Secretary, Mrs Allen, is always available to answer questions about the school. We highly recommend this school. In only a short time we have felt a huge sense of community, and with the small classes we have built strong friendships not only with the kids but the parents too!"

    "Most of the teachers overall are exceptional with the exception of a few. The faculty and staff are nice but the communication is poor. The focus is mostly on the academics and the school is not very supportive of any extracurricular events for the school or the parish that the families participate in. With the exception of a few very dedicated teachers you will never see the principal supporting any of the special masses at church that the families are required to attend, or sporting events that the students are involved in. There are some great families that work hard at creating a sense of community within our school but the school is not very thankful and there is nothing you can do about it. VERY POLITICAL"
