I have gone to Thatcher Schools my whole school life. There are two others schools around, each about ten minutes away, however, I love Thatcher Schools. We show school spirit every Thursday and Friday by wearing green and singing our fight song, which is a song showing our pride for how much we love and cherish our school. One of the amazing things about Thather schools is we have a program called RE Friday where students who are struggling or missed school days that week can come in and make up work or get extra help. Our school offers a club called National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) where you do community service, help others in need, and go visit colleges and universities! Thatcher has many clubs, arts, services, and many great teachers and facility.

Thatcher High School is a great school. We have amazing teachers, the choir program is the best, and the sport teams are excellent. A couple things I would like to see change is the respect students have for their teachers and other students. Also, there needs to be a better way for visitors to enter the school as anyone could come in and out without anyone noticing. Overall, I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to attend Thatcher High School.
It was a good school. Some difficulties with the administration, but nothing major. Teachers took genuine interest in students and an active role in helping them succeed. Not much in the way of extracurricular activities, unless you want a sport. There is a large emphasis on the sports programs which is good but leaves the other areas in sore need of attention, funding, and general interest.
