A high school located in Chester, Virginia. Most commonly referred to as Dale or TD. Home of the Knights. Dale has many award winning sports teams including football, softball, soccer, wrestling, golf, baseball, basketball, and vollyball. The biggest sports rival is L.C. Bird High School, which is also located in Chester and home of the Skyhawks. They have been considered one of the biggest rivals in America as Dale and Bird are part of the American Rivalry Series. Thomas Dale is part of the Specialty Center program and is the proud Specialty Center of the Arts including music, dance, art, and computer art which are also all award winning. The population is above 2,000 students, and has recently added a new building in 2010 just for a Freshman Campus which took over the previously existing Chester Middle School. Although there are many good things about TD, Thomas Dale is also known as Thomas Jail because of the barracading gates in the commons area that keeps students from roaming the halls during lunch. Also, because of the lack of trust the staff have with teenagers.
