    What You'll Find At The Heart

    Here are a few things to know about Heart of Mary School.

    Learning Communities

    Our innovative, new, Learning Communities (LCs) academic teaching model creates:

    PASSIONATE TEACHERS

    Our generalist-certified educators teach only in the areas of their greatest strength and interest.

    LEARNING BLOCKS OF K-2, 3-5 & 6-8 GRADES

    Here, the same teacher stays with the same students and teaches the same subjects across the three grades.
    (Ex: A Writing/Reading teacher teaches K, 1st, and 2nd grade students in those subjects).

    STRONG TEACHER/STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS

    Teaching the same students across 3 grades allows teachers, students, and families to create deep
    and meaningful relationships.

    HANDS-ON ATTENTION

    With small class sizes and 3 teachers teaching the same group of students, learning progress is closely monitored
    throughout the year.
