Elementary School (K-6)
Bret Harte Elementary has a commitment to ensuring that we provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for all children. Our passion is educating children and everything we do at Bet Harte is based around ensuring that your child receives a quality education.
The teachers and staff at Bret Harte are dedicated to ensuring that students receive a quality education in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. All children participate in 90 minutes of music each week. We offer reading tutoring through our partnership with Reading Partners; special education services; a Mindfulness curriculum where each students practices mindfulness yoga 30 minutes a week, a STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum Project Lead the Way, and a Student Support Center for basic, health, and mental health supports; among other programs and activities, to ensure support for all children.
In addition, we believe the strongest partnership we can build is between school and families. We have monthly family nights to educate our families on what our students are learning. We also do monthly tours of the campus by appointment with the principal for new and perspective families. We also welcome parents and family members to visit us and volunteer. Without our parent volunteers we could not maintain our Garden Curriculum, Beautification Projects, and Project Based Learning.
