Thomas High School Reviews

I liked the opportunities given to me at Thomas High School. There are many different clubs, activities, and sports available to all students. The teachers are also very supportive and helpful, always willing to give their students the best education possible. Many teachers I would even go to for personal problems if needed. One thing I would say to improve is the student parking situation. There are very limited spots for students and I believe they should be able to allow more spaces. Another thing I love about Thomas is the school spirit. Spirit week is something every student and faculty look forward to at the beginning out the year. Overall I enjoy going to Thomas High School.

The quality of education that I've received in 3 1/2 years has been above average, meaning that I do have a lot of knowledge about the subjects that have been taught to me. But, most of the teaching styles don't reflect or compare to the way you would be taught in a college environment. I believe that most teachers -with very few exceptions- genuinely want to see their students succeed and try to teach to their student's strengths. The only part most leave out is the college readiness. In terms of diversity, Thomas doesn't have much of it, but you will find this in most white suburbs. The amount of clubs, activities, and sports available to the students is massive and there's at least one club for everyone that looks for it. Security there is a main concern in light of the school shootings that have been happening in recent years and for the most part, the security workers here are pretty efficient. Overall Thomas High School is a great place to get the normal high school experience.
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.
