Elementary School

Welcome to Thackerville Elementary!

    At Thackerville Elementary, we focus on students grades Pre-K through 5th. All of our classroom teachers participated in a 4-day professional development program this Summer called Great Expectations. Thackerville Elementary will begin full implementation of the Great Expectations teaching model in the 2018-19 school year. We are very excited to see the success our students and school will gain through the use of this model. We would like to thank the Sarkeys Foundation for allowing our school this wonderful opportunity.

    Our mission at Thackerville Elementary is to enable students to be fluent, effective communicators, and life-long learners who are successful in their lives. Success is defined as doing what you enjoy and doing it well. We have a great team of teachers that are always developing innovative ways to reach the students of today’s world.
