My main problem is that there is too heavy of a focus on the sports. When it comes to extracurricular activities, the focus should be on things ...  Read more

I love this school. There are unlimited opportunities for you at this school. The school also has a dual enrollment program with LCCC (Lehigh Carbon community College).

The Jim Thorpe High School is the best!!! Their band rocks (I'm going to join it next year), they have great sports teams, the teachers are great, and you get an amazing education. Don't listen to the negative comments. Those people need to get their facts straight or leave the distrcit. I'm a student ...  Read more

If you can avoid it, do not move into this school district. Especially if you have a special needs student. They are not accommodating. Because of bad experiences with my son and the guidance counselor, who had a degree in psychology, I tried to have the counselor switched to the second of the two ...  Read more
