There are some highlights at this school, but for the most part school life here is pretty bad. The teachers, with some exceptions, do not care about what they are teaching you or care about how you are doing in school. For example, there is a certain 9th grade Global teacher who would never teach with any kind of energy, and sometimes we would just sit in class and do absolutely nothing. The music program is also pretty sub-par, with the main chorus teacher not caring about certain music groups. The middle school had a much better music program. Lunch can be okay, and the lunch ladies and janitors are extremely nice people. But as far as academics go and the music department goes, if you aren’t stellar in what you are doing you will be forgotten. Also, administration is terrible. Weird policies and no sense of them caring.

Overall, Thomas High School provided me with a fairly good four-year experience. There are only a few things I would mark as unpleasant or stressful factors. One of these would be the multitude of the teachers were somewhat hard to get along with or deal with, but that's how it is everywhere. Also, with the recent spike in school shootings and other dangers, the feeling of safety in Thomas has definitely been compromised. I can say with certainty that most students do not feel completely safe in school and would not be surprised if a shooting or other harmful event were to take place. I do wish the school environment was a little more friendly and felt a little safer, but other than that Thomas was a good high school and provided me with a mostly satisfactory education.
I had a good experience here, but there has always been room for improvement. College readiness, even in AP classes, was average at best. The food as I recall was either fried or healthy but gross. Students need good, healthy food to learn best and the school was still lacking in that. There was an initiative to bring SmartBoards to every classroom a few years back, but the budget committee didn't seem to take into account the opinions of the teachers, since most of them hated those boards and they were quite difficult to use properly. Overall, I'd say it's a pretty great school but could use some improvements that would improve the school budget, rather than deplete it.
