Thorp Elementary & Jr Sr High School 5

Posted August 21, 2014

My children have received an excellent education at Thorp. The school experienced some difficult times under the former principal/superintendent, but has since implemented some dramatic changes with the new superintendent including an innovative iPad program where every student is provided with their own tablet computer for personalized instruction and learning. The teachers work with the parents to keep them informed and on top of everything, and act on any matters of concern quickly. Kids who need extra help get a lot of personalized care, and kids who excel have lots of options for advanced learning and competitive activities that keep them excited. The staff puts in long hours, class sizes are small, and the kids at Thorp are very lucky. As a parent, I would recommend Thorp to any family without reservation.

You must keep the principal Jim Hainer under a microscope. He is very heavy-handed and cares nothing about the rights of others. He has been pushed out of three districts on the West side before he landed in Thorpe and there are reasons for that.
