    "This is a great school. The reason we chose this school was because it was a candidate school for the Primary Years Program through the International Baccalaureate accreditation. My daughter is in the 2nd grade and has tested above grade level in some of the major subjects and both her teachers (1st and 2nd) have done what they could to promote a positive learning environment for her. They have even used some of their own resources to help meet her needs. The administration staff is exceptional and goes above and beyond to enhance the learning environment for the student population. They also strongly encourage and promote parent involvement through the school. This is important since research has shown that children learn more from home through parent involvement and positive time spent with their children than through the education system. The staff is very friendly and makes an effort to know each and every student and their learning styles. I have worked within the educational system for four years and can safely say this school has a very strong base. They do their best in spite of state and federal dictates that don't take specific student populations into consideration."

    "I have been very happy with this school for my granddaughter, as I now have custody of her.. The staff I have encountered are courteous and are kind to the students. The teachers I have encountered are helpful and working to the best of their ability to make the students excel to the best of their individual capabilities also. My granddaughter has been in this school since Kindergarten and she is well above average in her scholastic learning curve.. This year she will be in the 3rd grade. She has liked all her teachers she has had and they have been nothing but exemplary in my opinion. The only thing I have a problem with is that this school is implementing common core and I am so against that program. I have noticed and have to admit is that some excellent teachers are quitting the field due to Common Core and will impact our children's ability to excel."

    "This school is a big disappointment.There are only a few teachers I feel are great teachers but for the most part the teachersand teacher aids are bullies as are quite a few of the students. I realize this school is not in the best of neighborhoods but thats no excuse for teachers and students to be talking with foul mouths. The office staff acts like they either don't want to be bothered or at times are too good to deal with us parents. I don't recommend this school to anyone and am thankful my children will not be returning next year."

    "Its so sad to read that the staff at Thornton elementary ignores bullying! It is such a serious matter and it needs to be fixed! And there should be consequences for the kids that bully! It could be any of our kids. Help this school! My daughter went to this school several years ago and I transferred her to another elementary school. The teachers, principal etc all respect the kids and the parents! Thornton lacks that and treats there students and parents wrong! Please do not send your kids to this school! Look into the school before placing your child there for 5 years!"
