I have personally experienced a wonderful high school career because of the hard work my school family endures every single day. I have taken rigorous courses all throughout my years and will finish out my senior year will more difficult classes. Being on the dance team has really allowed me to be plugged in from the beginning so join a sport! We have a lotgof sport options, class options, food options, etc. In fact, a fabulous new school will be built soon with incredible facilities. Overall, Thompson is a school I appreciate so much for molding me into a prestigious student that that is prepared forrwhatervr college or life throws a me. Warrior Strong!
Review Thompson High School
Thompson had its ups and downs, but it was overall a good school to attend. As teenagers we love to compare things, including schools. Thompson was always a school others wished they went to compared to the high school they went to. A high majority of the teachers take pride in what they teach and will do everything in their capability to give you any extra help you may need. The classes are challenging which prepare the students for college. Several extra curricular activities are offered to those who may not be into sports. Administrators also care about our education, well being, and safety while on the school campus. High school was a tough, but memorable experience.
Thompson is a great school. It is not an online school. The teachers are very nice and funny and personable. There is great sense of diversity. The football team is not that grade but Friday nights are still very fun. The students at Thompson really all are a big family. They are building a new high school, opening in the next few months so it is going to be even nicer. Principal really cares about students. There are AP and honors classes offered, as well as a college counselor to help students find the school that is right for them and scholarship opportunities. There are also plenty of clubs to be involved in.
