About Us

The Hartland Elementary School is a K-8 school serving approximately 310 children from the town of Hartland, Vermont. We believe that every child can succeed and we are committed to fostering a love of learning and a spirit of inquiry in our students, as well as supporting their emotional, social, and physical development. 

In addition to reading, writing, mathematics, science, and humanities, our academic offerings include world languages, art, music and drama, physical education, technology, health, library and technology skills, and guidance. Students have many opportunities for enrichment throughout the year and in our after-school program. Past offerings have included Lego robotics, drama club, chess club, arts and crafts, Mandarin, comics, and cooking. Our class sizes average between 15-20 students and our highly trained staff takes pride in keeping their skills sharp through on-going professional development.

Hartland Elementary School is located on a wooded campus within easy walking distance of Hartland Three Corners and the town’s library, athletic fields, recreation department, nature trails and Lull’s Brook. The Farm to School program brings our students to working farms in town and brings locally grown food into the school. Our school is deeply rooted in our town and community and we strongly encourage parent and community involvement.

Hartland students can choose to attend any local high school to which they are accepted. Our school district also pays the average Vermont state high school tuition to independent schools should an HES student choose to attend a private secondary school. We are proud of the preparation our students receive for high school, college and beyond.
