Thurston High School is one of the best schools in my area. The teachers at Thurston care so deeply for their students success, and I feel lucky to be a part of the Thurston community. While the academics are strong, the athletics do not fall far behind either! Thurston is home to many state titles, most notable the 5A Football State Title for 2018/2019, as well as national titles belonging to our cheerleading team. Thurston also offers outstanding arts programs! The choir, theater, and instrumental programs constantly wow the students at my school. Thurston has been a fantastic place to go to high school.

Thurston High School allows each and every student to be an individual. Students and staff support each other in every way. If some one is needing a shoulder to lean on, short on lunch money, or in need of a little extra help with an assignment, someone someone is always there.
Our school has had a difficult past, and I am proud of who we have become and continue to be. I am proud of our teachers and their dedication. I am proud of the coaching staff who offer so much more than just sports. I am proud to be a Thurston Colt! Thurston Strong!
Thurston High School is more about what is done in the classroom. They care about your well-being, and prepare you take on the next chapter of your life. The faculty is very nice, and are always looking out for our well being. One thing I was concerned about is the campus safety, but that was taken care of this year. I am very happy with Thurston High School!
