Welcome to Timber Ridge Elementary

On behalf of the students and staff of Timber Ridge Elementary, I welcome you to Timber Ridge Elementary website.  Timber Ridge, is proud to be the fifth addition to the elementary family in the Johnston Community School District.   With construction completed the fall of 2007, we opened as a four-section, K-5th grade building.  In 2013, we added six more classrooms and a computer lab to our building.  We are located at 7370 NW 54th Avenue in Johnston, Iowa.

Timber Ridge Elementary currently reflects a student enrollment of 500 students in PreK through 5th grade.  We have excellent dedicated teachers and support staff, committed to provide a safe and positive learning environment that promotes and encourages the growth of all children.   Our staff includes a full time guidance counselor, teacher librarian, and nurse.   We have full and part time staff members who teach our students in the areas of art, music, physical education and instrumental music. Students with special educational needs are supported by special education teachers, English As a Second Language (ESL) teachers, Reading Recovery and Reading Support teachers. Our Extended Learning Program (ELP) serves our students requiring an enriched curriculum.  Our special education, ELP, ESL and reading Specialist offer small group instruction, in addition to co-teaching in several of our regular classrooms.

There are several highlights at Timber Ridge Elementary.  Our building is a beautiful two-story building with six communities.  Each of the communities house one grade level with three or four classrooms in each grade level.  We also have two art studios, two music rooms, a full size gymnasium, cafeteria, performance area, library media center, two computer labs, along with 37 classrooms.   Our building is located in a remarkable setting, surrounded by trees.

Our staff and students value the wonderful support of our families, the dedication of our volunteers and the resources provided by our community.  We are greatly appreciative of the outstanding support our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) provides to us.

The staff and students of Timber Ridge are proud to be a part of the Johnston Community School District. I invite you to explore our website and read about our school.   We welcome visitors.  Please feel free to visit our school or contact us for more information.  We would love to share with you our beautiful building, wonderful staff and students along with the great things happening at Timber Ridge Elementary.
