Who Are We at Thomas?
At Thomas, we believe in every student and staff member's right to feel connected to something. Whether it be a group of friends or colleagues, a particular passion, music, art, a sport, a club, or a movement in the community, we encourage our students to be open to explore what creates joy, within. We believe this type of environment creates space for genuine learning within the classroom. Our goal is for our students to learn from a place of interest, and not from a place of fear. Our dedicated staff are committed beyond the school, and get involved, helping to foster a mindset within our students that no idea is wrong, and every passion is worth pursuing. The world extends beyond our walls here at Thomas, and our students are encouraged to find out what that world is like (more below). Thomas students are always giving back and thinking about the community and how they can have an impact on it, which makes Thomas Middle School an exciting place to learn and grow. This page gives an in-depth look into who we are at Thomas. Enjoy getting to know us and what we are about and if you have any feedback, comments or questions, don't hesitate to contact us!
