Thetford Elementary School seeks to serve the town of Thetford by developing each child in our care to his/her fullest potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically. It is our purpose to give each child an excellent foundation in the basic academic areas while simultaneously encouraging inquisitiveness, the acceptance of responsibility, an understanding of self, an increasing awareness of the world around us, an appreciation of basic values, and the ability to formulate sound judgments.
