Last year, 7th grade; was my first year and Thunder Ridge. Luckily, I made a friend the first day. I'm now in 8th grade and have made a lot of friends. Like the comment two years ago stated, there's a popular "squad" And then you have these other little groups of people. EVERYONE is a part of something. EXCEPT...now we have this thing called T-BIRD time and it separated our lunches. I'm not in a lunch with my besties, but I have the rest of my group. Which is a good thing. But I like this school. The teachers are awesome with help. You just have to ask, near the end of the year most of the students get in an argument with their teachers, and their grades will drop. When this happens, all you have to do is; parents-conference with them. And students~ talk to them before class. And then when conference time comes, BOOM it's all good! If you're a new kid reading this review; chill, and everything will be alright. =] Byeeee
~Tbh there's nothing to stress about, unless your grades are down, but even then; your teachers will be there to help you.
My first year at thunder ridge was 7th grade. Luckily, I made a friend on the first day. If you don't make a friend that fast it's OKAY. I can assure you. I'm in 8th grade now, and I have a lot of fun at this school. There's one big "squad" Like the comment two years ago said. But if you're not in the popular group, don't stress it; ain't nothing TO stress about. Just make a group of friends like I did. In 8th grade, we have this thing called t-bird time. It's new to thunder ridge staff and students. And it's terrible tbh. It separated my lunch with me and my besties. But that's why it comes in handy to make a whole group of friends. You can't just count on getting lunch with your closest best friend every single year. Like everyone does...lel. The thing is you can't be afraid to ask for help, like I am. Near the end of year 7th grade a lot of students loose their relationship with their teachers. Like I did. But what you have to do is set aside a time for your parents, and teacher to conference. after you do this, what you wanna do is talk to your teacher before class. And then when conference time comes, BOOM; everything's all good. =] If you're a new student reading this review, everything is gon be alright you just gotta chill and go with the flow. <3333 GOOD LUCK- I'm gonna look at this when I graduate high school- So hi past you; I hope you graduated high school, and are going to college for what you said you would when you were 13; meteorologist :o
There are some great teachers & staff that work at this school. I rate this school low due to a few reasons. One is inadequate student teacher ratios. The other is lack of knowledge on how to educate post cancer kids. There are more kids surviving cancer so this school needs to get up to pace for special needs kids.
I have been a student of this school all three of my middle school years. Personally, most teachers are amazing and there are many clubs and ways to get involved in the school. My only problem and my biggest problem is the bullying. There are cliques all over the school and everyone who goes to the school knows that they are either the popular group or the loser group. Unfortunately, I was considered a loser all 3 years and was mistreated by many of the popular people. What hurts the most is these kids don't even realize what they do to their peers. I never felt welcome to the school by the students and I have been shoved in lockers, even, without the teachers noticing while they are in the same hallway as I. The students do get a talk about drugs and weapons and bullying, however, they continue to do it behind the adults' backs and the adults continue not to notice. Even if something is reported to the counselors or teachers, the problem never seems to go away. I now enter high school not confident that I will make friends and terrified that my situation will get worse and carry on just as it did in middle school. I sort of recommend the school but please do be very careful.
