Schools are the center of community life. When a school thrives, the community thrives.

  • Discover your excellence in education and choose THES. We are Thomasville Heights Elementary School, a Purpose Built School and home of the mighty Tigers. We proudly serve more than 600 students from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

    We are a community who is focused on creating a safe and nurturing environment for our students. With a caring culture of trust and collaboration, we aspire to be a high-performing school where students love to learn, educators inspire, families engage, and the community trusts us.

    Thomasville Heights Elementary will achieve this vision by partnering with the community, creating a safe and healthy school culture, making literacy the cornerstone of all of our academic programs, and making school a place where students solve problems that matter to them.

    Student excellence is our goal. We foster the spirit of achievement and perseverance every day. Our students develop self-awareness, self-management, communicate effectively, show empathy, and use critical thinking skills in order to participate positively in the global community.

    We strive everyday to fulfill our core values:

    • Building Bridges: We believe that schools are integrally connected to a larger community, and we build bridges to parents, students, and stakeholders.
    • Belief With Commitment: We believe that every student can succeed at the highest level and that all things are possible with commitment.
    • Execution With Excellence and Integrity: We believe that success requires getting things done, and we value doing things with excellence.
