About Our School » Standards




Hart Street School's faculty believes that high expectations for both academic achievement and discipline provides a lasting foundation for successful learning. While each teacher develops classroom rules appropriate for that group of children, there are general expectations that apply schoolwide. Hart Street students are expected to adopt a scholastic attitude that supports achievement and to demonstrate appropriate behavior on campus at all times.
