Welcome to Haywood Elementary! We are an innovative, vibrant learning community where almost 900 students attend and over 20 different languages are spoken. Our goal is to educate the whole child using best educational practices and cutting-edge technology in a diverse, multicultural environment to prepare them for higher education, work and life.

Our caring faculty and staff bring that goal to life every single day. But don’t just take my word for it; come visit our school and see firsthand what Haywood is all about. I welcome you to join us!

School Description

At Haywood Elementary, we have one-of-a-kind teaching facilities, a beautiful campus and a loving faculty. We are a diverse school where over 20 languages are spoken, and as a result, we offer integrated reading and writing classes for our non-English speaking scholars so they can learn right alongside our native English language speakers. Many of our classes have more than one teacher at a time to make this possible.

We offer diverse courses specific to our third- and fourth-graders that help prepare them for middle school. and we have a science lab, Star Wars-themed technology lab, piano lab, music studio and art studio complete with a kiln for firing sculptures. Parents and students love our science and technology labs, which give our scholars hands-on access to learning.

We practice blended learning, which ensures our students receive a mix of traditional classroom instruction plus digital lessons, some of which they may complete on their own time. This prepares students for the way some high-school and college courses are currently structured.
