    Health & Safety: The school is taking up the slack of poor dieting at home with nice balanced school lunches and what not. As far as the activity level of the students its hard to say because not everyone has a gym class so the exercising is up to the student.

    Administration & Policies: I don't like administration and the policies, they don't focus on our education they focus on if we out of dress code. They should think more about our well-being than the dress code and other irrelevant things that doesn't make you get an education.

    Teachers: Some teachers know how to teach very well and others are there when you need their help some would go as far as tutoring till 5 pm. Not every teacher had that type of heart, but overall the teachers at Thomson high school are very amazing and they do love us students.
