Thompson provides a friendly environment where students can make everlasting impressions and memorable friendships. Also, students can build one on one relationships with the awesome teachers there (I've experienced this myself!). Along with the family oriented staff, there are many fun activities available after school...just ask! Such as, CAPS (where they even go on field trips sometimes and they provide snacks), Drama Club (my personal favorite), Chess Club (sometimes they play with HUGE chess pieces; which is awesome), and this only naming a few!!!!! If you are deciding on a new school, Thompson will be a choice that comes with NO regrets. GO THOMPSON TIGERS-AND SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY PAST TEACHERS WHO WERE GREAT: Mr.Nellany, Mrs.Antillion, Ms.Neuman, Ms.Beimborn, Ms.Crain

Thompson has been the best for my children we came from a school were the staff did not care to work with the Parents. I have worked well with every teacher and staff member they listen and try there best to accommodate. The PTO goes above the top to do family oriented activities and has the best interest of the students in mind.

This school is awesome. The staff is wonderful, this school grounds are always kept neat and most of all the teachers and administrative staff really care about the needs of your children. My son was a bit of a handful when he first started there but now, he is one of the top students there. Hopefully in Mr. Tickell's absence the new prinicpal will do just as well as he did.

I must agree thompson is a great school! If your child is starting kindergarten ask for Mrs. Doyle she is wonderful! My child is quite the handful and she did wonderful with him! Spending extra time to make sure he made it through! Not many teachers would do that! She treats every child like they are her own! Wonderful school!
