Thornton Fractional North offers resources and help throughout your four years of attending there. Freshman are primarily kept in the freshman house where most of their classes are and where their lockers are located. It helped me because it was simple for me to get to my classes and you were surrounded by other freshman. The one thing I did not like the most about T.F. North was that it was predominantly Black and Hispanic. I would of liked for it to be more diverse. There are clubs, sports, and resources all students are not brought attention to. There should be more advertisements about all of the clubs, sports, and resources presented there. Overall, T.F. North is a nice quality school that presents a great education, nice staff, and outstanding clubs and sports.

Overall it was a decent experience. When I was a freshman a club was started by a student who already graduated and it has been apart of my life. The club is called North P.R.I.D.; it is an LGBTQ+ and allies club that helps with school and community events. It also helps educate other people about the LGBTQ+ community; we support one another and everyone else. We most off all spread Love. Another thing that is cool is other clubs have been started at the school like the STARS Club that deals with immigration. There has been many studensts who went to states, and made mild stones for the school.
I liked Thornton Fractional North because the teachers were helpful and cared about their students. They were respectful and patient with me. They would also help me when I struggling with assignments. The school has a lot of clubs like history, math and chess club and sports that students can participate. Students should join clubs because it will help them get involved in school and the community. Overall my experience with the school was excellent because the teachers want their students to be successful in college. The only improvement the school can make is to continue to help students with school.
