School Reviews

I'm having a great time at Thornhill Elementary. The academic program is great! Most of the students get what people are teaching and if they don't, they would help each other out. The teachers and staff are really nice as well! For grades 3rd and above, you have a choice of violin, viola, or cello. In sports, you can do whatever you want. Soccer, basketball, volleyball, or even tetherball. Great school.
