I'm a graduate of THS, class of 2012. It is beyond obvious that if you put forth much effort, you can succeed academically and socially here. The school is crowded, but Alabaster experienced exponential growth, nearly doubling in size in less than a decade. The new city school system is already starting ...  Read more

The teachers are awesome! I love my JROTC classes and I'm so excited that we get to go to all the University of Alabama home games through JROTC this year. THS is the bomb!

i attended THS for 3 1/2 years. it was a great school. I loved everything about it.. the teachers, the administrators, and the safety. Yes, the bathrooms are nasty and could use a bit more cleaning but the academics are great. I would recommend this school anytime..

Thompson High is an amazing school. Most teachers try their best to help students understand the material they are teaching. Tutoring is also offered to students who need extra help. The principal does his best to accommodate the needs of teachers and students. I would choose Thompson over any school.

The school could use a lot of work. The place itself is falling apart. The classrooms smell like urine and dust. Alabaster is beoming a bigger city; more and more students are coming. There is not enough elbow room. Everytime I walk down the hallway, I run into people. Also, some of the teachers have ...  Read more

I believe that this school has good academics but needs more cleaning such as paper and soap in the bathrooms and some of the classrooms smell like dust so they need to do something about that. They also need to improve student parking and make a another building that will hold more students because ...  Read more
