Thornton is a terrific high school, with a diverse student body and faculty. They also host the International Baccaluarate program for the district, comprised of bright, motivated young people who will do great things! And the best part is, it's my alma mater!

It's good. The excellent thing about this school is th IB program. The amount of work is alot but it will pay off in the end. The Orchestra is very good. Though it is a bit overcrowded this is a very good school and it is the best school for students who want to enroll into the IB program.
