The Harley School
Powerful Learning Moments. Every Day.
We are a community of educators and students who have a passion to learn and to impact the world around us.
We encourage curiosity and inspire discovery. Our unique approach delivers a challenging academic program that creates a diverse and close-knit community while nurturing students’ strengths and helping them reach their full potential.
As members of the Harley community, children in our school flourish as learners and develop as individuals. We encourage our students to embrace their differences, celebrating diversity as they learn to actively participate in and help improve the world in which they live. Our students are not simply special because they are part of Harley. Harley is special because of them.
Our experienced educators understand how children develop, viewing each moment as teachable and masterfully guiding their class with consideration for each student. The children are engaged in a highly intentional way. By creating classroom environments filled with lively discussion, collaboration, social interaction, and play, the wonder of learning is opened up.
