Thomas Elementary

Achieving Excellence


  • Welcome to Sam Thomas Elementary School, home of the Thomas Texans! Thomas was named for Mr. Sam Thomas, a long-time educator and principal in AISD.  The campus was opened in 1992 on the east side of Abilene and currently serves approximately 560 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Students who attend Thomas are citizens of "Thomasville" and annually elect a mayor and city council from the 5th grade class.  Through the generous support of local Adoptors, Thomasville stores open on select Fridays so that students can purchase merchandise using points they've earned from reading books. 
    Thomas has a long tradition of academic success and continues to be a leader among Abilene schools.  We met the highest standard for state accountability in the STAAR test and recevied distinction designations in both reading and math.  In addition, we have been recognized as Abilene's only Higher Performing School in science by the National Center for Educational Achievement.  We are classified as a Title 1 school which allows our campus to receive additional educational programs that greatly benefit our students.  Our strong faculty, staff, and amazing parents form the team that makes success possible for our students.  We are proud to be Thomas Texans!
