Our Mission

Students at Big Thompson Elementary School of Nature and Science obtain a well-rounded, in-depth, relevant education integrating basic skills through a broad curriculum with a science and nature focus.

A Snapshot
At present, Big T has an average enrollment of 200 students. The majority of staff members serving our students have completed additional training in environmental education. Big T largely serves students in the rural area west of Loveland, but also a large percentage of children who've transferred in to take advantage of our nature and science program and outdoor educational area. Test scores for Big T students are consistently high, with the majority of students testing proficient or advanced.

"Big T offers a unique environment-- totally Colorado. It's the perfect place to teach our future leaders to respect our environment and to learn how to coexist with nature. As soon as we walked through the door, we knew we were 'home.' "
