Thompson High School is located in the city of Alabaster, Alabama.
The school is named after Thomas Carlyle Thompson, who donated the land and most of the funds to build the original high school building which is now the intermediate center. Thompson High School's first official school day was October 3, 1921. The existing site of Thompson High School was not established until the 1980s. It was part of the Shelby County School District, but as of July 1, 2013 has pulled out and joined the Alabaster City School System.
The school mascot is the Warriors. The school colors are red, white, and black. Thompson has approximately 1800 students. It participates in 7A level sports in Alabama. The school's wrestling team, established in 2007, won five state titles in a row (four 6A & one 7A) from 2011 to 2016.
The city of Alabaster plans to build a new high school, set to be completed in the summer of 2017. It will be the second biggest high school in the state of Alabama (behind Enterprise High School).
