We are a devoted community of students, staff and parents working together to benefit all our children. Our staff is filled with dedicated professionals who develop innovative ways to better serve our students in being prepared for college and career. We are all working to teach "21st Century Skills." This includes, but is not limited to skills of collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem solving. We want students not only to be able find answers to questions, but to also be able to ask the right questions, as well as to get excited about finding their own answers. We want students to be creative and be innovative and excited about learning.
Upon enrollment and at the beginning of each school year, parents and students sign the Fundamental School Agreement to support school policies and procedures. These include high expectations for attendance appropriate behavior, adherence to the school uniform and non-uniform dress codes, parent involvement in homework supervision, and regular communication between home and school. Since Thorpe is not a neighborhood school, parents are responsible for student transportation to and from school.
The school was named after Jim Thorpe, the famous athlete and Native American who won Olympic gold medals in 1912 in the Pentathlon and Decathlon field and track events. In January 2002, Jim Thorpe was named the ABC Wide World of Sports' Athlete of the Century. His dedication, perseverance, and outstanding accomplishments are the inspiration for our school’s goal of “Aiming High” with every student “College Bound.”
