School is ok. Offers higher performers better classes. There is staff that will listen & others who could care less. If they treat parents this way, how are they treating students?

The communication between the staff, teacher and students is terrible. There is no consistency in the rules and there are exceptions to the rules for who the staff chooses. This school has been in poor standing on the school report card for at least 4 years.

school is not focused. I attended this school and the classes could not get easier. The teaches make things easiers so that the kids can pass. The dicipline at this school is very loose. The student can get by on almost anything.

I am an alumni of Thornwood and now have children attending there. Where it has changed alot since I attended it has been very nicely maintained. Thornwood has it's issues as do all schools.

As a student of thornwood for 3 years i can honestly say that thornwood is awful, its way too crowded, they serve unhealthy, undercooked, and often expired food for lunch, and the staff has no control over the students, its ridiculous.
