Thoreau Middle School Reviews

To be honest, Fairfax County is one of the best counties academically speaking. It contains some of the best public schools in the country, and is filled with highly sophisticated people. Thoreau is heavily influenced by these factors, although its academic performance is lower than other schools of the same county. The staff are friendly, and the rules are more lenient. It is filled with fun clubs, including student created one. Its music departments are some of the best, and bullying is minimal. However, since it is a middle school, their are no sports teams.

All around wonderful middle school. Academics are strong, extra curricular strong. Most importantly they have a positive and nurturing climate for optimal learning and growth.
They care about their students academically, socially and emotionally.
