Our Vision

At Hardy Elementary, our vision is carved into the side of the building and has been since 1925. “Here we train Hand, Mind, and Heart for the common good.”
Through extensive work with our students, we have translated Hand, Mind, and Heart into the words Safe, Kind, and Responsible. These words are designed to support our students in an understanding of our expectations of how we work, learn, and play together each day at school.
The vision of the Arlington Public Schools is to be an equitable educational community where all learners feel a sense of belonging, experience growth and joy, and are empowered to shape their own futures and contribute to a better world.
