Hackley Lower School teachers create a warm and nurturing environment that encourages excitement for learning, joy in discovery, and confidence in taking on new challenges and collaborating with others. From the earliest grades, our teachers engage students in the school’s culture of respect and welcome framed by our mottos, “United, we help one another,” and “Enter here to be and find a friend.”
