Do you want your child to lead, innovate, and serve?

Tharrington Primary (BHT) has the programming that allows students opportunities to lead through their nationally recognized Leader in Me program, materials to innovate through their Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) framework, and the encouragement to serve others thanks to a dedicated and loving staff.
