Welcome to Theiss Elementary
Home of the Theiss Tigers! Theiss Elementary School is a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade campus with an enrollment of over 670 students. Theiss Elementary was established in the fall of 1974 and was named after the outstanding Theiss family.  We have an excellent instructional program with a variety of learning opportunities available to students. Theiss students perform extremely well on the STAAR tests, and we've enjoyed great success based upon the accountability system. Our reputation is one that we take great tiger pride. We strongly believe we have one of the best schools in the state of Texas.
Students enjoy a variety of teachers, some in a departmentalized setting beginning in first grade. Students enjoy learning experiences based upon the needs of each child. We have an E.L.L. program (English Language Learner) that includes children from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. This program makes our school a very unique blend of families from over six countries throughout the world.
Theiss students are involved in art, technology application, music, and physical education in addition to the regular academic setting. Fifth graders enjoy the option to participate in after school choir and orchestra. Leadership opportunities through our closed circuit live morning announcements also present our 5th grade students with learning opportunities that involve character building, and helping and supporting other learners within the Theiss community. Students in 1st through 5th can participate in after school clubs such as the Chess Club, Choir, Garden Club, Tiger Tape Club, and No Place For Hate. Destination Imagination with creative problem solving experiences is offered to students in grades 4-5. D.I. participation requires students that are dedicated and serious about this type of competition.
