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.

  Summer reading is about learning to love reading, and it should promote reading widely and voluminously. Students should be allowed to explore their interests and passions in the books they choose to read. Student choice is important!

Darlington County School District will use Accelerated Reader to expand the summer reading choices available to students in grades K-8. This program provides students access to over 150,000 quizzes.  We have compiled a list of suggested titles to spur your thinking and get your summer book list growing.
