    "The "idea" of the Thornton High School International Baccalaureate program drew us in, the execution is often times poor. The classrooms are overcrowded, the guidance counselors are not helpful, and resources are bare. We were sold on the "individual approach to learning" that was promoted, but this is anything but that. It is a one size fits all learning regimen. We regret making the decision for our child to attend this school."

    "Throughout my four years at Thornton I had many life experiences that have shaped who I am today. The teachers at Thornton played a large part in my success. The extra curricular activities offered and staff made school a second home for me. The support I experienced molded me into the teacher I have become today. I am forever grateful for the staff, teachers, and students that changed my life and made my high school career memorable and life changing! Class of 2006 - THS Trojans!"

    "When there are issues they are dealt with with fairness, equality, and cultural awareness. With the school population changing month by month, sometime day by day, the staff do an excellent job to maintain compassion and individuality. I have the privilege of being a parent and a substitute teacher so I am able to use that unusual perspective to commend my school, Thornton High School to others."

    "I love Thornton High School because we have teachers that actually care about the students. We have an administration that works hard to make sure students get the best education possile. Thornton has been my second home for the last three years and this is my last year at Thornton. Thornton helped make me the student and person that I am today. I'm a proud Thornton Trojan."

    "Thornton is a terrific high school, with a diverse student body and faculty. They also host the International Baccaluarate program for the district, comprised of bright, motivated young people who will do great things! And the best part is, it's my alma mater!"
