The teachers, staff and kids at this school are wonderful. Everybody works together to make each day a positive experience. The kids learn and have fun. Thompson also has a large portion of Special Education students, and they get personal attention and care. The school itself is located in a nice middle-class neighborhood. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area with elementary age kids.
I do not care for this school. The secretary is VERY rude and unhelpful. She does not relay messages. The 2nd grade teachers is always screaming at the kids and saying rude remarks. My daughter loved school until she went into 2nd grade. What is this teaching our children? Not to like school because their teachers " are mean to them"?
I am not impressed with the Rockford School system with ONE exception: Thompson is a WONDERFUL SCHOOL. This school has been great from the 80s when I attended to now, as my kids attend. The principal is great and the teachers are supberb. This is the only public elementary school I would recommend in Rockford.
Wonderful principal, who cares a great deal for the students. Teachers are top of the line!
i rate this school very highly when it comes to an academic level. all 3 of my children have gone (still attending) to this school and i would recommend this school to anyone coming into our school district!!
