    A great support system for all students and presents opportunities for all different levels of learners. After 13 years in the Thetford school district, Thetford Academy had a huge impact on my career choice and volunteering opportunities. The teachers inspire and support each of their students outside of the classroom and actually care about the well being of them. Thetford Academy is a new and improved type of high school.

    Although the school challenges students to reach new academic heights, there is a large separation and bias between academic levels. If there was a way to intertwine the academics and create a school-wide community, instead of separate ones, it would lead to a better academic environment. Although there is a negative mood among the upperclassmen, overall there is a great atmosphere that includes all students. TA strives to include all types of students and people, so everyone fits in and although there are cliques, there are cliques for every type of person. Overall, Thetford Academy is an academically strong school with a general positive feeling about the school.
    The school as a whole is very good, but the substitute musical teacher is AWFUL. One time, she wouldn’t let the star player of the baseball team leave school early for a game. This is unfair to the struggling team. Jenn Langhus is terrible. Immediate fire!
