The Hayground School

Hayground School is founded on the conviction that all children can and should live a life of the mind.
All children can be serious and passionate reasers; all children can engage in serious discourse; all children can work and study in a community where art is at the center, not the periphery, of life.
All children can develop the habit of compassion.  Our mission at Hayground is to provide an open, community school where unproductive conventions are replaced by new ways of teaching and learning.
We are committed to a program of innovalaton in a community of diversity, both economical and cultural.
