Welcome to Thunderbird Nation's Athletics
As your student continues his/her education at Thornwood we hope that he/she will take the time to review the extra-curricular offerings and consider getting involved in one of the many sports we have to offer. The sports listed here provide students with the opportunity to learn the values of teamwork, responsibility and leadership, diversity, perseverance and to develop a sense of culture and community within our school. Additionally, involvement fosters a student’s moxie, building on their courage and determination.
Studies have shown that when students are active participants in their school athletic program, they achieve more success in the areas of attendance, academic achievement, and motivation for continued learning in the post-secondary world. Their involvement reinforces lessons learned within the classroom setting, enables students to apply the skills they have learned and contributes to their overall, well-rounded education.
Thornwood students have the opportunity to participate in a multitude of athletic activities that encourage their passions as well as broaden and motivate their interests. We hope that you will explore all your options and involve yourself in something Thornwood has to offer!
