Excellent school. I don't know what the couple of other posts are about. I have had an excellent experience with both the teachers and the admin. I had a concern about a child in the school and asked to meet with Mrs. Conde. She not only met and listened to the concerns but took them very seriously and resolved the issue. My child is very happy in this school. They work the kids hard but it helps them get ready for high school.

Awful leadership needs a new administration running the school. Mr Domer has no idea how to be a productive VP.

It is our first year at Hart and I am most impressed with Music/Band Director Mr. A and math teacher Mr. Polon. I am only putting them first because these two people are really extraordinary. However the other teachers my son had are just as amazing - Ms. Smith for LA, Ms. Yang for Science, Ms. Jane Marker for Art, Ms. Boni for Home economics, Ms. Ottaway for french/spanish. Very nice scholl and environment. The only negative feedback i have is related to annual registration process - the line to get all the forms is tremendous, it took me 2 hours to complete registration and get my son's schedule.... there must be a better way to handle it?

This school has a great divide within it's staff and admin. Admin likes to sweep things under the rug. They have some great teachers there who do not get the support they need and have some teachers who should go find another line of work for all our childrens sake.

this school is awesome. my sister and myself have gone through this school. many of the teachers are very useful and help you in what ever you need. Mr. Maher is an awesome principal and gives you help when you need it. all of the teachers offer help at least once a week. i am in eighth grade and i love it. i am a WEB leader and i am going to be in leadership next semester. i TA for Mrs. boni and it is very fun. I think that Ta is something that everyone should do. It is an awesome experience. i hope everyone has and will have an awesome time at this school because it is truly a wonderful school.

I love this school, Mr. Maher is the best principal, he's so kind and generous to his students and parents. These teachers are very intelligent, and my daughter loves it here. She's in 7th grade right now and she already likes all the classes she is taking.

Four of my children have attended and or currently attending Thomas Hart Middle School ('Hart'). Hart is a school where the kids come first. I have never met a better Principal and Staff. I can't say enough good things about Principal Maher. He's one of a kind. He knows all of his students and if one of his former students come to him for help...he's there! A true Angel. The Teachers are hardworking and very skilled. I have observed many teachers at Hart reach out to struggling students and help them get back on the right track. This school is over the top! I've personally have attended and my older children have attended schools where the principal was just a warm body and the teachers could care less. My hope is that one day all schools will be like Hart Middle School! What a great place to go to school!

I just wanted to thank Mr. Maher (who is awesome) and his staff for such a memorable expeience at Hart. I must say I was a bit nervous when my daughter started going to middle school, but from the moment I met Mr Maher and his staff, and saw how caring and concerned they were, I was immediately put at ease. Thank you all so much for everything and especially for taking such good care of my daughter, you all helped her grow into what she has become today! Mr. Maher, you are the best principal ever!

Parent involvement is very high --- they are a huge money source for the school. There are all kinds of support services for struggling students as well as enrichment opportunities for all students, not just the Gifted. Sports opportunities are immense.
