    Extracurriculars: There are many things to be involved in but everything is so expensive and it is hard to be involved in more Han one thing because everything is so demanding.

    Overall Experience: 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!

    Teachers: There are a number of teachers who truly want students to succeed and reach their highest potential but there are also a number of teachers who do not care. It's like they just wanted or needed a job. We have lost so many amazing teachers due to discipline problems with in our school.

    Health & Safety: Students, faculty, and staff are well notified of what goes on around us. There have been a couple of bomb threats during one year and the officers and administrators were noticeable of protecting us and showing they care about our safety.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities are the main sources students look towards at the end of the day. It seems to us the teachers even put more focus on sports and clubs, rather than their classroom. The school spirit is awesome, and overall everything is great,
