Thorne Middle School Ratings & Reviews

I don't like that we get homework piled up between classes.

Although I feel that the Administration and the Faculty are above average - I think the school has significant challenges in dealing with the mixture of students that are zoned for Thorne. At this age, kids are trying to push the limits and in the three years that my daughter attended Thorne, I can site at least 5 fights, numerous issues with bullying, inappropriate texts/tweets/instagram posts, etc. The consequence for these actions were mostly "in school suspension". Although, I am sure this is common in most middle schools - it is distracting to the students and makes for somewhat of a scary environment. Knowing what I know now, I probably would have opted to send my daughter to St. Mary's.

Thorne was horrible for me. Do not send your children here at all costs. The material taught is 90% useless. The majority of the teachers can't teach, especially the seventh grade honors math teacher who is also mean to kids! It was so bad someone had to right a 7pg letter to the school about it. Anonymous of course, because freedom of speech is not respected. There is always bullying, and fist fights too. They try to cover up the fights too, and if you use your freedom of speech to talk about them you're in trouble. The dress code is sexist, only girls are punished for "being distracting to boys. Someone should teach the boys not to treat the girls like sexual objects but like people. The gym classes are biased towards athletes. Everything is bad. Almost everyone wants to transfer, it's such a horrible place. And oh yeah, if you call it bad, you'll get in trouble. One kid in my grade did it online somewhere, and they got suspended for it. I rate 0/10. 3 years of torture for me.

I went to Thorne Junior High School in the 1970's and it was the worst school I have ever attended. Its good that now that guidance people listened to the kids, but not back then and you should know Dawn Mc Gee, Sandy Schreppel, Kathleen Hunter, you thought you would bring me down by bullying me and being terrible to me in 7th and 8th grade. I turned out just fine and hopefully you girls are better people then you were in 7th grade. But I doubt it. I have no good things to say about Thorne Middle School. give it a new name but its still the same.

I'm currently a student at Thorne, and let me say I absolutely love it. Our teachers are very supportive in our goals. We can enjoy school while learning. And I must say, especially the chorus teacher, Mrs. Mari is very supportive of me, also. The teachers help you with not only school, but private problems also. School is very enjoyable. It's safe, and the students here are well informed about things going on. School spirit plays a big role here at Thorne. On fridays, orange and black clothing fills the school, as our school spirit day. We have sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities. I love Thorne, and I'm sad I'm in eighth grade already, because I'm not ready to leave. I love it here, and I appreciate being a student here.
