He takes the time to get to know our students at a personal level and pushes them to keep improving and to never settle. There is usually a line of students wanting to talk to Mr. Thompson. Mr. Thompson has also been a great leader with our coaches. They reach out to him for advice about coaching but also for advice outside of coaching.
