History of Timberland High School

Timberland High School is a consolidated high school in rural northern Berkeley County. Three schools, Cainhoy High, Macedonia, and St. Stephen, merged in the fall of 1996 to form the new Timberland High School.

Timberland is a comprehensive school that started with approximately 1000 students in grades 9-12. The enrollment for 2016-2017 is approximately 688. The school has a staff of approximately 57 teachers, three guidance counselors, one media specialist, three administrators, an Academy Coach/Resource Specialist, a Title I Facilitator/Curriculum Coach and a full support staff. The school operates on a 4x4 block schedule with 90 minute blocks with a few 45 minute embedded classes that run all year. Timberland became a Josten's Renaissance School in 2006 and has received national recognition through this program on four occasions. Timberland adopted the High Schools That Work Initiative in 2007 and has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Best High Schools in 2013 and 2015.  

The school has won state championships in both girls and boys basketball, football, wrestling, the girls 4 x 100-meter relay, and the 400-meter dash.  We have a long history of athletic and academic success.
