    Overall Experience: High school was an incredible experience for me and I enjoyed Thompson high school a lot. My class i graduated with was an awesome class and I had some of the best teachers while I attended. I would most definitely choose this school if I could do it all over again.

    Food: I brought my own lunch to school every day just because it was a cheaper option, but from what I ever did try and what my friends ate for lunch it never looked gross or not eatable.

    Administration & Policies: Administrative and policies were always very strong and in full effect when I attended this school. Dress code, cell phones and being absent with no excuse were some of the biggest problems with most students. The administers did an excellent job at making sure students were doing what they were supposed to be doing and where they were supposed to be.

    Sports & Fitness: I didn't play any sports in high school, but from attending the sport activities and from the friends I had that did play sports, I was never disgusted or ashamed toward my school.

    Teachers: Close to all of the teachers I had at this school were extremely engaged in their students. All of the teachers I remember having used really great teaching techniques to help make learning easier and even more fun. I thoroughly enjoyed most of my teachers.
