Welcome to Thornwell School for the Arts! 
We are committed to providing all of our children an education while assisting and supporting our families as they guide their children on the educational journey. 

TSA Families,  don't forget to check agenda books!  You will learn a lot.  If your child says they do not have one,  call the school.
