I rate Hardy as a Great Middle School. It reflects, embraces, and has built the character of the school around the diversity of DC. There is no other middle school in DC with the breadth and depth of course offerings as Hardy. It is a smaller school while still having enough students for all students to find friends. I highly recommend Hardy!
Wonderful school -- so much to say but also the stats on this website are so out of date it's laughable. Go take a tour to learn what's actually happening today. I think the stats here on great schools are from at least 10 years ago.
I think students should be able to use their backpacks to carry their books . I mean isn't that what backpacks are for! So now I am out with my daughter buying a bag for her books that she shouldn't need because she has a perfectly good backpack!
A hidden gem in DCPS. It's small size and committed staff means everyone knows your child. Both the administration and the teachers are very involved in making your child's education their top priority. Administration is outside the school both before and after to both greet your child and see them off safely at the end of the day. The classes are engaging and my child is truly happy and has developed a strong work ethic which has surprised me a bit. There are 8 periods a day (as opposed to 7 at Deal) which allows for the chance to try electives like art, computer design, foreign language and more. There is PE each and every day as well as time to play outside after lunch (recess) which is still essential for most middle school students. New this year is a once per week special elective called "talon time" for Hardy hawks . Creative writing, team-building and many other options for this multi-grade activity. I have been very impressed with Principal Pride and her staff. I am thrilled my child goes to Hardy.
