Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school is awesome! I have 4 children, 2 who are currently enrolled and 2 who will enroll. I had heard some information that scared me about this school. However, the principal is outstanding, the staff are friendly and caring, and the students love learning. Positive behavior is encouraged through the ROAR program, students are grouped flexibly and based on need, and teachers work hard to meet the needs of the students while teaching the curriculum. Test scores have improved a great bit too :)

Thurmont Elementary is one of the Catoctin Feeder Schools in the Frederick County Md School District. This is to say that the students in Thurmont Elementary School, (TES), will eventually move on to Thurmont Middle School and Catoctin High School. I have had 4 children in this school. Each one has had different learning styles and needs. Each one has recieved a quality education. TES rates high within the school district in parent volunteer hours and involvement. Teachers and faculity know each of the children by name, both the quiet unassuming ones, and the loud bostrous ones. The principal is understanding and fair, the teachers work with parents to help the children learn. Character Counts programs are intergrated into the school activities. There is some problem with bullying, but this is being addressed, starting at the primary level, and also in TES itself, with more awareness and learning programs.
