Heywood Avenue School serves students in grades Pre-K through Grade 7 with a student enrollment of 400+ students and is a great place to teach and learn! Our teachers are committed to a high quality learning experience focused on the individual needs of each child. We are striving to be creative and innovative in our instruction to engage students in their learning through a variety of STEM activities, applications of technology, and 21st Century skills.
Our primary goal at Heywood Avenue School is to help all students achieve their dreams and find success in pursuing life goals. We are unconditionally committed to providing the best possible educational program for our students. We believe that there are numerous opportunities, both within our curricula and through extracurricular activities, for our students to gain skills that will allow them to be successful in their lives.
Families and community members play a critical role as partners in supporting both your students at home and work in the schools. We look forward to working with you throughout the year to make important decisions that affect both your child as an individual and the school as a whole. As a start to this partnership, we hope you will join the PTA, attend School Community events, support our Visual and Performing Arts Nights, and volunteer whenever possible in school activities.
