    Totally unimpressed with THS. The facilities are delapidated. They removed the principle last year and implemented 4 administrators who don't seem to have a handle on academics. My son is unable to bring his text book home to study because of "limited resources." They have been unable to hire an adequate Italian teacher although have no answers when asked if there were any candidates and what the plan was with students who were enrolled in Italian. While having that conversation with an "adminstrator" he's scrolling through his cell phone. Surprised more parents aren't angry about the school quality.

    Terrific school. We have seen many students leave here and go on and do great things.

    THS is a great environment for all willing to avail themselves to the opportunities available of high school. The many talented and dedicated Teachers Coachs Administrators and support staff encourage and challenge students. The administration is available and dedicated to resolving issues of concern and are always available to address concerns. I speak from personal experience of the countless times I have called and spoke to various departments I will say that more financial resources would be an asset to the learning environment and more advanced technology in the classroom would benefit students entering a tech driven work force.

    I believe that the school is a diamond in the rough. I think with limited resources it is a great school. It's full of diverse individuals. The Faculty is caring and assertive. I am very content with the school and its plans.
