The academics at this school are good, especially science, social studies and math. Many of the teachers at this school are unsupportive of students. I find that it is difficult to keep track of my child's grade. When I contact teachers to find out how my child is doing, they can be somewhat condescending and unhelpful. Again, this is not true of all teachers, but of many.

I had four successfully pass through the Thurston Middle School. On rare occasion one child ended up on the wrong side of discipline. I felt the staff diffused the situation rapidly in a very sensitive manor, limiting long term harm to as many as possible and allowing my son to practice more empathy and experience the grace of forgiveness.
