Hart Magnet School Mission Statement

In partnership with parents and the Stamford community, Hart Magnet School provides its students with a learning environment that ensures a firm foundation in the basics and fosters respect for our diverse population. Hart focuses on technology and an inquiry-based approach to science. The theme of environmental studies allows our students to find a connection between their own community and the world in which they live, creating productive citizens and resourceful, life-long learners.

OUR NEW PROJECT AT HART MAGNET IS THE SCHOOL YARD HABITAT!!!!  We have been selected by the US FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE along with the GREENWICH AUDUBON to create and construct a school yard habitat that all students can enjoy and appreciate.  Students were introduced to several designs for the front and back of the school building.  Representatives of the US FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE and GREENWICH AUDUBON shared their ideas with students as part of our College for Every Student (CFES) program.  Our guests shared information on their careers as scientists, environmentalists and park rangers.  They came from all parts of the country including Alaska and Puerto Rico.  In addition, we will continue to plan and co-ordinate with the MILL RIVER COLLABORATIVE.  We will keep you posted on this exciting project!



As you know, the State of Connecticut will be testing students in Grades Three, Four and Five on the Common Core State Standards.  These standards are rigorous and  are woven throughout the district curriculum.  We have held several presentations on what parents can do to assist and support their children at home. Please feel free to contact your child's teacher to see how you can further assist your child.  In addition, please visit the websites below.  The websites will give you a first hand look at samples that may be on the Common Core State Test.  As always, student success is everyone's success!

For the following websites, it is recommended that you use Firefox, Chrome or Safari.  The Smarter Balanced practice test and sample questions are not compatible with Internet Explorer.
We will continue to update you with changes as we become informed of them.
