This paper describes a computer program for high school timetabling which has completely solved an instance taken without simplification from a large and tightly constrained high school. A timetable specification language allows the program to handle the many idiosyncratic constraints of such instances in a uniform way. New algorithms are introduced which attack the problem more intelligently than traditional search methods.
