    "I liked the teachers of the school, however I didn't like the admin due to the very strict dress code policy. I also wish students participated more in spirit days and assemblies."

    "Thunderbird high school offers many programs and clubs for everyone. If they don't have what you are looking for you could even create your own club. This school will do everything in it's power to not let you fail. They offer Wednesday mornings for at student to get help with any class. They have a computer lab where there are people there to help you with any work you have. The administration have a close bond with the students even know them by name. This school is an amazing learning facility."

    "I decided to transfer to Thunderbird after a rough year at my previous school, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Throughout my junior year and thus far in my senior year, I have made so many great friends that truly care about me and will stick with me for the rest of my life. The teachers are very helpful and smoothly address and concerns present. The athletics program is also great! While none of the sports are state-winning material, they do a great job and all work hard."

    "The teachers at this school are amazing! Very attentive to each student, as well as overall very knowledgeable. Although, counselors are very poor; extremely inactive with students and most act like each student is more of a number, rather than an individual person. Furthermore, the school itself (students and staff alike) is VERY anti-LGBTQ+. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL IF YOU ARE A TRANSGENDER/GENDER-NON CONFORMING STUDENT! They do nothing to accommodate Trans students, as well as past negative experiences with LGBTQ+ students plague this schools' reputation."

    "Thunderbird has been a great school that has helped me grow as a student. However, I found that the quality of teachers is very inconsistent."
