My overall experience with Thomson High School has been great. I have met some great teachers, that are passionate about the learning experience of the students. I played football all 4 years. During my high school years I have definitely had some highs and lows. Overall I feel like I am not only equipped for college, but for responsibility as a whole. I have learned a lot about my attitude, work and study habits. My high school years has been very challenging and exciting. I have learned so many things that will help me in life, and feel that I am prepared to face whatever obstacle that comes toward me.
I've gone to the Mcduffie County school system my entire life and I can count on one hand the number of teachers I've had that really care about the students education. Truthfully, it isn't all their fault, our students are notoriously difficult. Overall I've just seen a lack of order in our system, with its constantly changing schedule and last minute changes so often, the school lacks structure.
