About Thurston Middle School

Thurston Middle School serves students in grades 6-8, and provides core instruction for every student in four academic subjects: math, science, language arts, and social studies.

In addition to core instruction, students participate in a FLEX class every day to receive additional support or enrichment in reading, math, or other subjects.  

Opportunities for athletics through our partnership with Willamalane, access to clubs, and various affinity groups provide ways for students to connect outside the classroom and build relationships with staff and other students.
