Jenny Salberg - Principal

Welcome to the Thurston Middle School!  Thurston students are provided rigorous academic challenges that focus on building a solid foundation in Social Studies, Science, Math and English Language Arts.  Our amazing elective department provides enrichment experiences in such areas as Band, Art and Drama.  Our supportive Physical Education staff rounds out our course offerings, providing an important balance in the lives of our students.

Thurston will provide our students with an exceptional education as well as ample opportunities to build strong character and become good citizens.  Our Positive Behavior Support program, Solve your problems, Make good decisions, Achieve, Respect,There and Ready – SMART, provides each and every student the unique approach to grow and develop both academically and socially.

Communcation is the key!  My door is always open.  Please feel free to contact me at with any comments or questions that you may have.  With the continued support of our wonderful parent community, PTA and School Power I am quite confident that this will be another great SMART year for all of our Thurston staff, students and parent community.
