SO FAR MY SON IS ON THE FOOTBALL TEAM AND IS SEEMING TO ENJOY HIMSELF COMPARED TO OTHER SCHOOLS HES BEEN TO...HOWEVER I WOULD NOT JUDGE THORNRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL UNLESS I HAVE RECEIVED LESS THAN 100% FROM THE STAFF!!! IM JUST WISHING FOR A GREAT SCHOOL YEAR FOR MY SON AND MYSELF!!

I MUST AGREE WITH THE ABOVE PARENT. THORNRIDGE IS NOT UP TO PART WITH THE COLLEGE BOUND STUDENTS. I GO THROUGH THE SAME THING EVERY YEAR WITH THE SCHOOL BOOKS. I TURN IN THE BOOKS AND LATER GET A LETTER SAYING I DIDN'T. I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM WHEN IT COMES TO BOOKS AND LET ME REMIND YOU HOW DENSE THE STAFF IS AS FAR AS PUTTING THE GRADES IN THE SYSTEM MY CHILD TOOK SPEECH AND THEY SAYS SHE NEED IT ,NOT ONLY DID THE SCHOOL CHECK WITH THE TEACHER TO CONFIRM THIS. THORNRIDGE IS SLIPPING ON THE ACHIEVERS,FEES,B0OKS, REQUIRED CLASSES. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND SENDING YOUR CHILD HERE IF YOU CARE AND ARE LOOKING FOR A SCHOLARSHIP YOU WILL NOT FIND IT AT THORNRIDGE !

I really wish they would find scholarships for top students, especially after they were named Illinois State Scholar. Students need more help financially.

SCHOOL IS NOT ON TOP OF COLLEGE BOUND STUDENTS . THEY DO NOT OFFER NO SCHOLARSHIPS YET THE STUDENT WORK SO HARD TO MAKE THE GRADES. THEY SPEND A GREAT DEAL OF TIME ON DISCIPLINE AND RULES AND NOT THE EDUCATION. THEY HAVE HAVE ORGANIZATIONS THAT WANT TO COME INTO THE SCHOOL TO HELP STUDENTS GET SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING YET IT IS DENIED. I AM SO TIRED OF TELLING MY CHILD TO WORK HARD AND THEN WATCHING THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FAIL HER IN DOING WHAT IS NEEDED SO SHE CAN SUCCEED.
