The whole school works on this. Although there is a formation department that works 1:1 with the students, the rest of the teachers do too.

The Athletic Director, Steve Wright, has really developed the program over the years. The student participation rate is really high. There are even some classes that have 100% participation in the extracurricular sports programs.

I've watched some of the students grow tremendously on this point. It's all part of the overall formation.

They develop respect because they are growing to live up to their potential. It doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.

Principal Doyle is doing a great job. The program has always been so solid, and he has just enhanced it in his years here as principle.

I haven't found another school anywhere that does close to what THS does. Top academics, and an incredible character and spiritual life that's been beyond anything I expected.

Mrs. Neiser, we would like to thank you for your creative approach to science and math. Jake learned so much in building a solar car and wiring it to work. You are awesome!
