About Thurston Elementary
Thurston Elementary School is one of 12 elementary schools within the Springfield Public Schools district.
At Thurston Elementary School, we strive to create a safe, fun flexible and connected community where we meet everyone where they are and help them grow.
Thurston Elementary School has had deep roots in our community since 1950. Our school is surrounded by tree-lined hills and views from nearly every window in the building. Along with our beautiful setting, we are lucky to have strong support from our families and community members.
