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 High School offers various opportunities for its students'. Whether it be through academics, sports, theatre, music and art or clubs, the school is about the students success. Thompson High School continues to grow which is why the community is getting ready for the brand new high school being built. School spirit is a great quality in all students and THS. You would see different teams and students supporting one another.The diversity helps the school with different clubs which are open to anyone who would like to join. Students are encouraged to provide ideas to help everyone at the school. Academics are taken very seriously and the school even goes above and beyond by offering free tutoring.Thompson High School allows us to take on responsibility for ourselves and decide which path we want to take in life. All of us are encouraged to do our best so that we may be leaders not only in our school but in our community as well.
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.
