At Hart Magnet, we strive to help students learn through their areas of interest. All students select a week-long STEAM focus of study from our unique mini-course catalog, three times each year. We enhance our curriculum through hands on, fun and engaging projects, such as the School Yard Habitat, Mill River Collaborative, and
Coding classes. We also weave our science and technology theme throughout the school day. Our staff are lifelong learners themselves and are motivated to incorporate innovative and expansive programs. Our teachers challenge, inspire and prepare students to succeed in middle school and beyond. We collaborate with teen and adult mentors from the Academy of Information, Technology and Engineering High School (AITE), UConn-Stamford and the Stamford Public Education Foundation.
In recognition of our success, Hart Magnet received the Lone Pine Fairfield County Academic Gain Award and was named a State of CT School of Distinction. In 2018, Principal Linda Darling was honored as Stamford Administrator of the Year.
All students in third through fifth grade receive additional art education through the Learning to Look program, including a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC each year. Our fifth grade students conclude their optical science unit with an immersive, professionally-led pinhole camera project. Students at Hart Magnet thrive in our atmosphere of shared community. They cultivate our community within and outside of the school through their support of local food drives, pediatric
illnesses and by honoring veterans.
