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 moved here to Pleasanton and go to Hart as a 6th grader. I love Hart!! Mr Maher and staff, you're the best!
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!

Has a great Principal and staff. Teachers are friendly and qualified. Great music program including band and strings. Popular activities such as year book, leadership, teaching assistant for 8th graders. Focused on preparing students for highschool.
Program is excellent and students are very competitive. Music classes are offered and their band is great. Parents are very involved in volunteer works. I recommend this school to anyone.
Lots of curiculam activities like band, after school sports, and much more, there is also a lot of parent volunteers.
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.
This school is a great school my daughter is in 8th grade and has gone here since 6th and does not have one bad memory! All of the teachers are so wonderful and are such lively people. The principle is a wonderful man and takes care of and problems our child has and so far has taken care of every singe one of them! If your coming from another district don't worry about your child going to the right school bacause there are no worries here!
