Our school is located in the town of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania surrounded by the Pocono Mountains. Our kindergarten through eighth grade building is located at 150 West 10 th Street in Jim Thorpe and is home to over 750 students! Our pre-kindergarten is currently housed at the Jim Thorpe Area High School, located at 1 Olympian Way, Jim Thorpe.
Our school has much to offer educationally. In addition to Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, we offer instruction in library science, music, art, physical education, health, computer science/keyboarding (grades 4-8), and guidance. Lessons in all areas are infused with technology. In addition to two computer labs, a variety of mobile devices, such as laptops, iPads and iPods, are utilized throughout the day.
Student education goes beyond the "Regular" curriculum. We are fortunate to offer a Pre-kindergarten program, funded by the state. We offer Title I Reading and Math Support Classes, Gifted Support, and Learning Support integrated with our regular classes. The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 provides Life Skills and MDS classes within our building.
Please view the district website to gather information or contact us at 570-325-2703 if you have any further questions.
Our staff looks forward to partnering with every family to develop and guide a successful educational journey for each student.
