Thomas Stone High School is a public high school in the eastern section of Waldorf, Maryland, administered by the Charles County Board of Education. The school colors are blue and gold and its mascot is the cougar. It was named after Thomas Stone, a Maryland representative in the signing of the Declaration of Independence.



One of the oldest high schools in Charles County, Thomas Stone was opened in 1969. [2] Like Henry E. Lackey High School, it was originally constructed with some classrooms underground. It was renovated in the late 1990s, increasing its capacity from 1250 to 1600 students. [3] Thomas Stone is currently the third largest high school in Charles County, after North Point High School and St. Charles High School.


Few are sure of the exact origins of the nickname "Cougarville" but the nickname has entered into the vocabulary of both Thomas Stone students and staff. This nickname has become so popular that the official homecoming theme for the 2007-2008 school year was "Welcome to Cougarville".


Thomas Stone is known for its basketball program. The boys basketball team won back to back 4A East regional titles in 2007-2008 and 2008-2009. [4]

In the late 1980s and 1990s the baseball program was one of the top teams in the states under Coach Ed Glaser.[ citation needed ] (State Champs in 1988). Overall there have been many student athletes that have left Thomas Stone to pursue professional sports.[ citation needed ] In baseball a few athletes were drafted out of high school and while in college (Nick Vitellis, Griffin Zarbough, Joey Wilson, Mike Finnamore) but none have made it out of Rookie/Instructional League.[ citation needed ] Football had Marcus Whalen (European football leagues, AFL and CFL) and Antonio Lewis (Practice squads for NFL teams).[ citation needed ]
