Principal's Message


Welcome to Thurston High School, where Eagles soar and you will too!


As Thurston’s principal, it is my goal to ensure that all students have diverse opportunities to develop into leaders through a guaranteed and viable curriculum, a relationship-based philosophy of education, and topflight athletics and extracurricular activities and events. You and your family will find these opportunities whether through the Eagle Scholars Program that offers more than a dozen Advanced Placement courses, our caring student services department, our award winning band program and fine arts courses, or any one of our clubs: from Heavy Duty Robotics to the Black Awareness Society for Education (B.A.S.E.) to the Board Game Club, Thurston High School is the place for you!


I look forward to welcoming you and your family to the Eagle family.
