    "Thompson and the surrounding District 41 schools are nothing short of outstanding. My children used to attend a private school and I was always under the assumption that a public education was not as beneficial as a private education. I was so wrong! In the three years that my children attended Thompson we have enjoyed the highest quality teachers and amazing staff. My children are receiving a well rounded education complete with art, music and band, computers, and a range of enrichment activities. Their reading and writing program is so impressive that the district is written about in top education publications. And the Principal is amazing! If you are thinking about moving to this community and have young children, you found the right school."

    "Thompson is an amazing school. The curriculum is challenging, while still presenting an opportunity for all students to be successful at their level. Last year I saw my daughter make great strides with Mrs. Anello and this year I am seeing the same growth and challenging work with Mrs. McShane. I am so please how the teachers even with an AP student they want to continue to find new ways to move them up and keep them interested. My other daughter faced more challenges and they worked with her just as hard, so it's good to see from opposite educational situations just how much they put in to help all kids ! Great Job Teachers !! Debby Dunne - Parent"

    "I have been here at Thompson school ever since I was in kindergarten. I am now moving onto middle school, and I do enjoy all of the teachers. They are up to the job to help kids learn, whether they struggle or not. They provide an excellent accelerated math program; it was fast-paced, but it was slow enough for me to learn. I have enjoyed my stay, and hope for others to have a great time, too."

    "Thompson is a phenomenal school! We have been so pleased with each teacher my daughter has had from Kindergarten, and now to 3rd grade. The curriculum has been a great balance of challenging work mixed with fundamentals and "specials" (art, computers, gym, music) The principal is warm, friendly and seems to know every student in school. Her door is always open and my daughter has said that several times that she welcomed her in easily when she wanted to share an essay she'd written or piece of art she had made. The entire staff is warm, friendly, and seem to genuinely care about each student. Careful attention is paid to give struggling students the extra help they need, and more challenging work is given to those that are above average so they are never bored. Overall, Thompson looks out for each students well being, emotionally and academically. Wonderful!"

    "My older son is finishing Kindergarten and I'm amazed at what he has learned and at the pride he feels in his achievements. Mrs. Lyon accomplishes in 3 hours what other schools achieve in a full day...and she does it twice each day."
