    "Thornton is a great school with excellent teachers and bright students. The school offers many extracurricular activities and excels academically with above 900 API. I don't have any hesitation about sending my kids here."

    "The school colors are black and yellow like actual thunderbolts in the dark. The school year so far is the very best. All the teachers just know what to do."

    "I'm a 7th grader In Thornton and is almost done with the school year. Thornton is actually an amazing school.I am an all honors student.My history, math,and science teachers In my school are really nice and work hard to get one on one time,to make homework seem less difficult to us,and to make sure we all learned the lesson before we go to the next one.My math teacher is going a couple chapters ahead of the other classes,and my science teacher is the only teacher in the school that make us do the science fair, and the other teacher don't do it because they feel that their students don't feel prepared. PE is OK, but its English that troubles me the most. My teacher is alright, but she doesn't teach properly. She doesn't give one on one attention and she doesn't give any examples or a throughout explanation of what we are supposed to do. I suggest if you like arts and crafts, take calligraphy. she barely teaches calligraphy and mainly teaches art. The real arts and crafts teacher retired in the middle of the school year, so now we are having a sub come in each day and after a few months a new one comes in.By the time your child might come to Thornton,a new teacher may come."
