this school is great! thompson excels mostly in the fine arts, such as band, choir, theater, and art. i've been on high honor roll all year, and the teachers are great! thompson deals with bullying way better than my elementary school did.

Not one of the better Jr Highs in the school district. Teachers are at best, uncaring and unmotivated. Parents have been discouraged from taking an active role in their child's education. It takes more than a phone call to the principal to get a return phone call from the teachers. There are some ...  Read more

When I went here so many teachers were rude and didn't care. My grades suffered severly for it. Teachers didn't even try to help me and I was almost even held back!

I went to this school between 2002-2005, and although I had a good time, it was definately below average. There were a few awesome teachers, but there were atleast twenty I experienced who were awful and rude! The building has had so many additions, it simply doesn't fuction. There is a main hallway ...  Read more

The teachers are substandard - the best teachers are treated horribly by the administration - the worst teachers (who are verbally abusive to parents or ignore parents completely) are retained. Too many kids at this school (35+ per class), no real learning or caring going on. Old-time community families ...  Read more
