Profile Completeness


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.

John Thomas School of Discovery is an elementary that has completely revamped early childhood education. The staff are incredible. There are so many brilliant minds teaching there.

The name just didn't change. It has a whole new staff and student body. Now is a magnet school that you have to apply to get into a lottery to get in. This is the second year for it. Grades K-6. It is a longer school year than the rest of the district. Map scores for the new curriculum have not been posted. Neither has the rest of the districts. It go's by the S.T.E.A.M curriculum. Most parents seem to like it. Yet a few have removed their kids back to the main stream. I greatly encourage doing research to get the best fit for your child. This may be a test school for the future if Nixa schools. Only time will tell.

My son is currently in his third year with JTSD. The teachers, administration and support staff have made a remarkable impression on my son in the most positive, profound ways! He is academically challenged appropriately, and the school provides ample opportunity for extending success beyond the regular school day. We are incredibly grateful for the obvious dedicated effort and time that is put into making JTSD a great school for children of all variability.

I have 3 children that attended Thomas in both 04-05, and 05-06 school years. They began in 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. We moved to Nixa from California, and I must say that I was, and continue to be very impressed with Thomas Elementary, I dont know what to say other than they truly strive for excellence! From office staff, nursing, teachers and administration, they are all awesome. I couldn't ask for better people to care for and teach my children!
