    NTPS Community, 

    I am excited and honored to serve as your next superintendent! I view my role as a partnership with staff, families, the community, and our Board of Directors. 

    I have worked in the NTPS community for nearly three decades, and care deeply about our schools, our students, and our staff. As a former teacher and principal, I know we are fortunate to have talented staff throughout our district dedicated to student success. We offer robust opportunities in and outside the classroom for our 14,500 students, helping them explore their future and spark a joy of learning.  

    I will begin my time as superintendent listening and learning from community partners, staff, parents, and students. This will help deepen my understanding of the priorities and values of our community as we begin our work together.  

    Please reach out to superintendent@nthurston.k12.wa.us any time to share your thoughts. 

    Sincerely, 

    Troy Oliver
