This school provided me with the opportunity to be involved in my child's education and helped my child to be the best possible. All the teachers were supportive and are willing to help any student who are in need. It is the best school a child can be sent to.
I was a member of the class of 2005 at THS. I loved that school and spent more time there than I did at home. I won't say that every day was perfect but overall, I could not have had a better education. I started college far ahead of many people and completed assignment that others struggled with with great ease. Easily the best school in Baltimore County.
