Principal's Message

Your children are the motivation for all of our efforts, the center of all we do.  Our goal is for students to feel at home learning in an environment where they are loved as they are taught.  With outstanding teachers who understand the way individual students learn, Hartley provides academic rigor in an environment that emphasizes thinking and creativity. As we begin the new school year, we rededicate ourselves to providing a culture of caring for our students. Students, teachers, staff and parents are the “heart” of Hartley!

Dr. Paul Goricki
