This school was the best thing that ever happened to my son at that age. The staff in this school, from the janitors to the high admin staff was so kind and helpful to my son, who has special needs. I am so very glad that my son had the opportunity to learn and grow. The school nurse was a wonderful advocate for my son. I am forever grateful.

Thoreau provides a very hands on learning enviornment. The students work in groups and are assigned many projects, not just reports and worksheets. My daughter is a 6th grader there and has excelled beyond my expectations. They have so many things to offer, it's hard to decide! The staff is caring and the discipline is handled effectively and swiftly. I cringe to think of my daughter having to go to another middle school in the Tulsa Public School system. Thoreau is the choice for me.

I have two children at Thoreau. One with a learning disablity and one who excells in everything. At our previous school they treated my LD child differently not in a good way causing him to feel stupid in his words, at Thoreau he has been just as successful as my other child who never has any education problems. Thoreau has been such a great experience both of my children feel successful and intellegent. My son made the honor roll for the first time in his life his first semester at Thoreau and has continued to know he to is very smart. Thanks to the staff at Thoreau for all you do for our children.

At Thoreau your teachers are not only your teachers but they are also your friends. After you have attended Thoreau you take school and life more seriously and have more fun doing it. Instead of having pages and pages of homework you have inquiries (projects) that you actually learn even more about the subject while doing them. Overall its the best school I've attended.

Thoreau I think is one of the best schools in Tulsa. If your child needs a little bit of a challenge or needs to improve in their school work this is the school for them. Thoreay has greast programs like micro society is one of them. The teachers are great they really do care about how your child is doing in their school work. I really do recommend your child going to Thoreau it will be the best 3 years of their lives guranteed!

This school is an incredible school. I came in a timid 6th grader not knowing anybody, and now with help of teachers and staff I feel like I'm a part of a greater family within the Tulsa community. I would reccomend this school to any student. Parents this school would be great for your kids. Mr.Padalino is a wonderful principal, who really cares about each individual student.

This is a wonderful school. All of the students are well educated and very kind. I took a tour and was very lost when a student who helped in the office helped me out she was very helpful and extremly kind. The school not only teaches its students about the normal core subjects but about life. Any student that attends thoreau demostration academy will leave an educated and chararistical a better person. I would also like to recomend the wonderful Drama classes lead by Mr. Leyva, if your child gets in make sure they take his class.
