Thetford Elementary School (TES) currently serves 172 children in grades K-6. Our dedicated community includes experienced classroom teachers, para-educators, and support staff. The program of studies follows a standards-based curriculum that includes arts, agriculture, place-based sciences, social sciences, and project-based learning. We also have a thriving P.B.I.S. program (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports), with the common values of being Safe, Kind, and Responsible.
The town's children continue their secondary education at Thetford Academy (TA), which is the oldest private secondary school in Vermont.
As a community, we strive to minimize our carbon footprint. In February of 2015, Thetford Elementary School installed a fully functional 141 kW (DC) ground-mounted solar array, which has generated over 965 MWh of electricity as of June, 2022. (For perspective, this is enough to power over 179,000,000 cell phones, and over 40,000 electric cars!)
