Principal's Message

Dear Thomas Hart Families,

As we reflect on last year and plan for continuous improvement, I would like to thank you for sending your children to school ready to learn each day. When students are prepared and enthusiastic about school, a love of learning develops.

At Thomas Hart Middle School, that is reflected in both student individual STAR (Standardized Testing and Reporting) scores and the school’s API (Academic Performance Index) score. Congratulations to Thomas S. Hart Middle School students, staff and parents working together to earn a 2011 school API score of 907, a growth of 8 points from our 2010 score of 899.

The most recent score reflects all your hard work with the students. We have many reasons to celebrate this success because together we make a difference in the lives of our children every day! This is a remarkable feat and a reflection of the great teachers, staff, students and parents we have in the Hart community.

While we are proud of our students’ accomplishments, we know there is still much to be done to ensure their ongoing growth and development. The Hart staff members are committed to continuing our focus on providing a rigorous standards-based curriculum and partnering with you to provide our students an outstanding education.

Warmest Regards,

Terry Conde
