"Our experience at St. Timothy Catholic School has been wonderful! Our children are in grades 1, 3, 5, and 7 this year. We chose St. Timothy Catholic School because it offered all of the opportunities we were looking for in an elementary school. The leadership is strong and committed to excellence. Our priests, Fr. Rick and Fr. Ross, and our principal, Ms. Thomas, greet each child by name at morning drop off. We feel like we are placing our children in caring hands. The academic challenges are appropriate for each of our children in his or her own way. We most appreciate the focus on family time and service to others, which are reflections of our Catholic faith."

"Bringing our child to St. Timothy has been a breath of fresh air. We were nervous changing schools, since our daughter was doing extremely well at the previous institution. We went to St. timothy to see how they were going to handle the new school being built. As soon as we entered the building, it was evident they were driven to make this the preeminent grade school in the area. From the cutting edge technology in the classrooms (Chromebooks for the children, a STREAM lab, etc.), to the focus of educating students on all subjects (not just ones being tested nationally or in the region). The energy and the focus of the teachers is evident as you walk in the front door. Everyone from the substitute teachers to the principal have the same goal, and there is no confusion they are teaching academics, but also teaching how to be responsible and caring individuals. The staff is always looking for ways to make school a great place, and it shows on the smiles of the children that attend St. Tim’s. We haven’t had any regrets on the decision to come to St. Tim’s, we only wish the school had been built sooner to allow our child even more time to develop within the school."

"Saint Timothy has truly been a blessing for our son. The school focuses on the individual needs of each child and not the standardized test scores like public school. St. Timothy’s teaches materials in a variety of ways as not every child learns the same way. Our son loves the staff, teachers, and fellow classmates at St. Tim. It is truly an environment of compassion, caring and service. We have never seen our son more excited and engaged about learning! He comes home excited about the experiments that his teacher does in science. He loves the state of the art STREAM lab. He says the lunches are phenomenal. It’s an environment with small class sizes totally focused on student learning and growth. I wish St. Timothy School opened sooner! Our son would never go anywhere else. Thank you so much for caring for our son!"

"Saint Timothy Catholic School has been such a positive experience for our middle school daughter. It is a great feeling to pull up to drop off your child for school and be greeted by the school staff and to have that staff know your child and greet them upon arrival. Our daughter has struggled for the past 7 years in school both academically and socially. She was becoming depressed and did not enjoy going to school. She actually commented the other day, Mom, I’m much happier this year. I feel included and people actually respect me. What a blessing as a parent to hear your struggling child say something like this. Academically, she will most likely always have changes, but to have your child be included and accepted is truly priceless."

"I think it is every parent’s goal to see their child happy and successful. Having a child with autism spectrum disorder presents unique challenges, not only with communication and social interaction, but also with achieving educational goals. St. Tim’s has provided us the opportunity, assistance, and resources necessary to help our child develop essential speech, communication and social interaction skills. They recognized our child’s particular educational needs and implemented a tailored curriculum to address those needs. We could not have been happier with the teachers, assistants, therapists and administration."
