    "Throughout my four years at Thornton Fractional South High School, I encountered a number of teachers. Each teacher had their own personalities, rules, teaching styles, and levels of knowledge on the subjects they taught. I have had the pleasure of being taught by teachers who genuinely care for their students. They will stay after school and work with struggling students, never judge or talk down to their class, nor did they ever stop caring about the lives of students outside of the class room. Unfortunately, majority of teachers do not care for their students as they should. I have dealt with teachers who made it their personal goal to get their pay checks and go home. They cared very little to none about the education of their students. Our understanding of the subject being taught didn't matter to them at all. Although every teacher is different, I do not regret being in any of their classrooms. Whether good or bad, I walked away with more knowledge on a subject or a new life lesson."

    "The teachers we have encountered seem to be very helpful and interested in the future of the students. They are willing to tutor and assist. If you ask or are concerned and reach out they will work with you. You must show your interest to get results."

    "I have enjoyed my experience and would do it all over again. I was active in a few social committees such as Best Buddies and Peer Mediation. I also played Freshman Basketball and Freshman and Sophomore Softball. I love the teachers I have had; we have music as transition between classes which works really well and the students love it. The students and parents are extremely supportive for the athletics."

    "The school and teachers are great. The curriculum is great and they offer a nice variety. Scheduling process is okay, but the counselors handle the course load with the students; parents are not involved -- this can be good and bad. The teachers, counselors and staff give a great deal of responsibility to the students. They expect the students to relay messages to the parents for sports practice times, after school clubs and even senior activities. They have however begun to utilize the broadcast messages over the phone for some things."
