    "I know a lot of parents who work at the university who think they need to send their kids to Giant City or Unity Point to get a decent education. It's true, test scores are higher at those schools. But they serve far less diverse populations. What we've liked about Thomas School is that every kid in the city of Carbondale goes there: black, white, hispanic, rich, poor, middle-income, you name it. It looks a lot like real life. And what I'm surprised so few people realize is how superior the range of offerings at Thomas is. There is a fantastic two-way Spanish-English immersion program; there is an academic talent program; and there are not only regular art and music classes, but also optional lunchtime programs in dance, theater, art, and music. Also, EVERY kid learns how to play the violin through a grant program! It's pretty amazing, especially given that both Giant City and Unity Point no longer have art classes at all. Thomas isn't perfect, but it's got a lot more going for it than many people give it credit for. I'm giving it three stars because I think in many respects it *is* average, but it can be great if you and your child are able to take advantage of what it offers."

    "I agree Lewis has some exceptional teachers; however, they do not have appropriate support staff in the classrooms to ensure each student receives the appropriate level of instruction. Student/Teacher Ratio is now 20+/FT teacher, often without teacher's aides or other assistance required to maintain order in the classroom. Bullying is a MAJOR problem here and is NOT properly addressed by the administration. My child received counseling as a result of the bullying he endured for two years. (Not to mention that we gave him permission to respond physically if necessary to protect himself.) This is not conducive to effective learning!!!"

    "This school has some exceptional teachers! It has a wonderful reading program as well as excellent curriculum in other studies. Art and music programs and each 2nd or 3rd grader learns to play the violin. My son loved this!"

    "This system provides a great basic structure but they are still trying to figure out what to do with the AT (advanced)kids. Your kids will be safe in this environment and learn. It is a shame that the teachers are forced by the state to gear the classwork in the fall into 'training for the test'"
