the staff do not treat you well especially when you are outgoing and always "out there". Also if your parents are not American citizens. Most of the time the teachers will teach well but they think students should keep quiet and be respectful all the time. I think students should be allowed to express their feelings.
This school is a hidden gem. The teachers are very caring & want your children to succeed. I had two children attend from K-5, one had an IEP and the other was in GT classes. They both were successful. It shows that this school can meet whatever needs you place before them. I'm great flu to the entire staff. The parents are very active in the school & there are always opportunities to volunteer.
Excellent school with great administration and staff. The after school program is an excellent addition to the already stellar environment.
One of the best! Tied for #7 in the entire state of MD!!! We love the teachers, staff and principal at THES! To the previous reviewer... No, they are NOT nixing the G/T program! It's wonderful! My kids have had the bet experiences here! We love it!
I wouldn't wish this terrible school on anyone. There is horrible leadership and poor academic programs. I've even hear they are nixing the GT programs next year.
Thunder Hill Elementary is a small tight knit school full of parent involvement. The principal is excellent and a great motivator. We have two of our children currently enrolled and our third will be starting Kindergarten in a couple years. We couldn't be more pleased with the education our kids are receiving. The teachers and staff are amazing!
THES is the best! Exceptional learning experience from the basics to fine and performing arts. My daughter transitioned just fine from private school and greatly improved her skills under the exceptional guidance of her teachers. Mrs. Parsons is a wonderfully gifted and caring teacher. Thanks to you and all the great teachers and admin staff at THES!
Thunder Hill has it all- excellent teachers, administration and staff. My children are achievers because of this school's dedication to its students. It's a small school, which allows opportunities for parents, teachers and administration to communicate effectively. The PTA is terrific, too! Thunder Hill is a 10+.
I have one child in Thunder Hill and another that will be attending next year. The school is a wonderful place to have children attend and all of the students, teachers, and staff are very courteous. There is a good mix of diversity and the emphasis on education is excellent.
Thunder Hill is a supportive and nurturing environment. The staff is dedicated to the children and thee are many opportunities for parent involovement.
This school has been wonderful for my son. He has received all extra help he has needed and all of his teachers have been excellent. A+ school all the way!
