The Timmerman School

The Timmerman School believes the child is an eager and willing participant in the action of learning if given a stimulating and nurturing environment.
To foster this desire, the faculty, staff, and administration of Timmerman strive to provide a safe, creative, thought-provoking atmosphere in which a child can learn to wonder, question, create decision making skills, and comprehend the meaning and function of the world around him or her.
The development of self discipline, resourcefulness, responsibility, respect for others, and respect for self is, therefore, fundamental to the school's educational philosophy.
It is the goal of the school to produce graduates with highly developed thinking skills who are well grounded in all fundamental academic disciplines.
