Senior: I loved going to Jim Thorpe. It's a very nice atmosphere. The lunches are under the same state/national guidelines as others, but the workers try very hard to give us tasty lunches. The teachers are friendly and understanding. Many classes here emphasize college readiness rather than actually teaching certain subject matter, which I believe to be better. Sport culture is good here. Fan sections may lack at times for certain away games that are just a little too far, but overall the attendance is very good. There is a club for everyone here; you'll fit in somewhere. One complaint I have is the administration. They make many very bad judgement calls. They made very bad decisions regarding senior shirts and a certain student's senior project last year, which people can still feel. Their weather judgement is very poor. There were many morning I felt in danger going through mountain roads. Overall, Jim Thorpe was very good for my high school experience.
