Welcome to Hearst Elementary School
Hearst Elementary School is now in our fifteenth year (2014-2015) of operation with close to sixty staff members and 700 students in Transitional Kindergarten through fifth grade. We are continually striving to refine and expand our current programs while maintaining our traditions. The school is located on the south side of Pleasanton and serves a diverse population of students. Through ongoing grade level collaboration, our teachers have developed a program that exemplifies high academic standards, character education, and technology. The well-trained and experienced staff meets student needs through individualized and differentiated instruction. We analyze classroom data as well as state assessments and set goals to meet the needs of the whole child. Our school-wide TRIBES program promotes mutual respect and personal responsibility. Each month we focus on one of the District’s Community of Character Traits: Responsibility, Compassion, Self-Discipline, Honesty, Respect, and Integrity. Technology is used as an instructional tool as well as an avenue for communication. Individual teacher web pages provide parents with access to grade level curriculum, standards, student work, and classroom information.
