My children have attended the school for about a few months now. The teachers and principal are very rude, disrespectful, and unprofessional. Most of the teachers demeanor are offensive. Concern parents are frown upon at this school to protect and condone the bahavior of the teachers. If the teacher and/or principal feel as though you are to involved in your child's being at R L Thornton, they will try to discriminate you by going so far as calling child protective services. This school is a disgrace and shouldnt be recognized for anything other than an investigation with the school board/superintendent. My children and I have never seen a school at this magnitude...I'm disgusted, disappointed, and highly offended.

I don't like it when teachers can stand behind the protection of the principal whether they are right or wrong. The older lady over the attendance office is rude and very unprofessional.

There are instructors that care, a principal that has a great presence in the school, and parents that are also actively volunteering to help out. Overall this school is on track!
