School Description:

Thaden School opened in the fall of 2017 and will grow incrementally to serve students in grades 6 through 12 by 2020. We offer small classes where students discover joy in learning and cultivate their potential under the guidance of masterful educators. Designed by a nationally renowned team of architects, our campus is located in Bentonville, Arkansas, walking distance from a remarkable variety of cultural and educational resources.

At the core of our mission is a deep commitment to balance that takes many forms: a challenging and innovative that integrates the sciences and the humanities through three signature programs (Wheels, Meals, and Reels); indoor and outdoor teaching spaces where sustainability is a tangible part of the lesson; hands-on programs for civic engagement that enable students to apply their academic skills and knowledge to real issues in their community; and athletics and physical education programs that build confidence and character through competition and meaningful participation. Our indexed tuition program further enhances the quality of a Thaden education by allowing us to create a diverse learning community where many perspectives, talents, and interests come together. In these and many other ways, a Thaden education helps students achieve a dynamic and enduring sense of balance that prepares them for college and the opportunities of our rapidly changing world.

We have named our school in honor of Iris Louise Thaden (1905-1979), a proud Arkansan and one of the greatest aviators of her time. Her pioneering and innovative spirit – at once regional and global in its orientation – will inspire our efforts to create a school that gives students roots and wings, enabling them to build strong foundations and reach new heights as they pursue their dreams and make their futures.
