“I am absolutely delighted by my school Thornton Academy! It is definitely very demanding academically especially because I chose lots of difficult subjects. Now I am also super happy that I chose dorm accommodation vs. host family. It gives far more opportunities to fully immerse yourself with campus and I just make more friends here. It is also as warm as being with real families because teachers with their spouse and kids live in our dorms but in their own apartments 4 families per dorm. Truly this is the best choice and thank you for convincing me! I still have lots of privacy with my friends and yet get to hang out with teacher families, eat with them now and then – love it! Also, Thornton Academy has a very smart location – outside of the city, so we have our own community here, but at the same time, we can make it to Portland on weekends!
So far I love my school and I will be happy to recommend it to other students who want a bigger school with great academics!“
