The only thing in my opinion that is great at this school is the football atmosphere. Friday nights is all that matters in this city.

I deffinetly would not choose this school to attend because discipline involving students and teachers is very poor. The administration does not follow through with anything they say they will and students think they can get away with anything because they can. Many teachers had given up on meeting standards because they simply did not care anymore or they were put in that place without the correct education. One thing that I will always remember about this school are the Friday nights in he brickyard! We have a great sports program at Thomson High school!

Thomson High School is not considered to be the school everyone would like to attend. The reason I would not chose another school over Thomson High is because we are like a family at this school, and we would always want to bleed "black and gold" (the school's colors").
