We have two children attending OA Thorp - kindergarten and fourth grade - and we love the school, the staff and the parent community. We feel extremely lucky to have such a great school for our kids. The kids are challenged, the parents are involved and I feel the environment is safe and supportive. Thank you!

Thorp is an amazing school with supportive teachers, wonderful staff and involved parents. My daughter has attended Thorp for three years, and we feel extremely lucky to be a part of this great community.
My experience with some of the teachers has been great and not so great. I have had teachers to express concern but lacks the energy to work with my child. I have had some teachers that was able to handle my child energy level. The teaching styles overall needs improvement we must get away from the old style of teaching, every child learns differently. I know for a fact my son is more of a visual learner. He can't sit through long lectures, he needs interaction. The grading is consistent, I do believe the teachers are knowledgeable. I do believe the school is separate the children based on the way they learn which isn't right.
