I enjoy this school. True, some teachers are not all that great, but most of them are awesome. All the ones I have are great. I think THS offers a large variety of classes and most of them are great. We even have a Tech Support that has students as part of the work. The administration can be ...  Read more

School Atmosphere is overall kind of weak. This is due in part to Mrs. Henslee, the Principal. She makes every small school tradition unacceptable for some reason or another.
