A case study of Thorp Elementary School in Thorp, Wisconsin
November 4, 2016
Thorp Elementary is nestled in a rural community of 1,000 residents in northern Wisconsin. Thorp serves many high-need students, with 60 percent of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch and a wide range of ability levels in each grade. The school implemented IXL in 2013 to support their Response to Intervention (RTI) program. Third grade teacher Alyece West was one of the first to embrace IXL for both regular classroom instruction and RTI.

This is our third cohort of Elite 100, and we’re blown away that a third of this year’s teachers are repeat winners. Read on to learn more about this extraordinary group of teachers.
