School Site Details

Thatcher School

The Thacher site was removed from the surplus list in order to provide field space for Northeast Middle and Northeast High Schools. Demolition was completed in September 2015. KCPS completed construction of athletic fields for NE Middle and NE High in 2017. In November 2021, KCPS held a ribbon-cutting for the Thacher Memorial, which was constructed to honor the legacy of those who attended the school and the building’s architectural significance. The memorial was constructed using building materials salvaged from the façade of the building. Community members have also collected memorabilia for a new time capsule that was installed with the Memorial.
