The school has a close family atmosphere. The teachers are very good and work hard to help make it a better place. Previous reviewers have commented on specific individuals but have not shared why they feel the way they do. There is a new principal this year and he seems to be working on addressing some of the challenges the school has faced in the past. My child loves being at Thunderbird and is looking forward to graduating.
There are classes that are challenging. The school is still improving but they work with the raw materials that they are given. Teachers hold the line fairly well as they try to help students gain the skills they will need in the work world.
The school is very caring and has a staff that cares deeply for each and every student. The students still have to do their part when it comes to learning but staff is there to model what a caring individual looks like. The staff models what a caring individual looks like, even when it is tough caring, even when it comes to discipline.
The girls dean at this school is very rude and mean. She told my daughter that she was a failure and she wasted her life. I talked to the principle many times yet he sent a letter saying My daughter could not return. There have been many compliments yet nothing is done to fix the problem. This school has wasted a lot of money sending only advanced music groups to Europe and Las Vegas but sending the other ones. They have gotten rid of some of the best teachers I have seen. The math teacher does not speak English very well at all and her entire math class is failing! Shouldn't that be something to worry about. There is not Christian vibe and I don't recommend this school to anyone.
If I could of start this school back in when it first started or up to about three years ago before the school began to go through a principle change, I would have. Recently this school has been going through mean changes mainly due to the new principle. The major issues from what I what I experienced was the lack of show true Christian value/views, lack of good education, removal of some of the best teachers, finical issues and much more. The school is beginning to twirl out of control. I do hope that those who are continuing to go there in joy their years there and make the best out of what is to come. They will all be in my prayers.
This school is one of the best schools around. It has amazing faculty and students that make you feel right at home and as if you were family. They are spiritually active and love to help the community. Their academics are not bad either. They have many extracurricular classes as well, and sports. It is a wonderful school, filled with wonderful people.
