Stats don't tell all. The 1:1 dedication that the counselors put into the lives of the TVHS student body is 2nd to none. My kids loved attending & succeeded with the love & support of all their teachers, coaches, & counselors. Electives are diverse. Great school!

I attended a football game between Thompson Valley HS and Niwot High School last night. During half-time the Thompson Valley HS Band provided the entertainment. This is by far the best performance by high school aged young people that I have witnessed. Beautifully choreographed with fine instrumentation. Exceptional.
