I had a great experience with ThunderRidge High School! They had very fun activities outside of school that made the student life more than just about school and more enjoyable. The types of activities that I thought were the best were field day, sporting events(football and basketball), homecoming, and senior sunrise.

We have had a great experience at ThunderRidge! Excellent teachers and staff and so many opportunities for clubs, sports and activities! It’s also surrounded by a very caring and involved community. Would highly recommend!
ThunderRidge High School was a very safe space for me to learn and grow. I never had a problem with any of my teachers over the past four years. Actually, most of them made it clear to me that their classroom was safe and their doors were always open to talk about anything. There were also so many ways to get involved through sports, clubs, and volunteer work. The school also had so many events to look forward to throughout the year that really made time fly. I wouldn't have rather gone to any other high school!
