    "I liked some of the teachers and classes there. I didn't like how students wouldn't always feel included. There were a lot of cliques and bullies."

    "I spent 4 years at this school and enjoyed my time immensely. There were so many opportunities for preparing yourself for college if you knew where to look, and would recommend Thunderbird for anyone starting high school."

    "The school is good overall, however, there seems to be some teachers that are not qualified for the job, the food is not fantastic, but it's not awful, the remodeling made the school look pleasant."

    "This a great school that has diversity in the students and staff and creates a welcoming community. However, if you do not take AP or advanced classes, students fall short in college readiness."
