Excellence * Joy * Openness * Creativity

The Healey School is a dynamic school community that provides a progressive education for its students. We are in our second year of implementation of a plan to unify what used to be four separate programs into one cohesive school.

The Healey Mission:

The Healey School is an innovative participatory learning community. Academic competence is highly valued, and we believe that children learn best in a joyful, creative environment, one in which their natural curiosity, imagination and thinking are encouraged. Our curriculum is based on thematic, project based learning, designed to engage children's interest and best efforts. We are committed to an educational program that recognizes the importance of community in the lives of children. Three aspects of our program are evidence of this commitment:
  • Creative Arts: Participating in writing, dance, music, theater, film/video and visual art are vital and integral parts of our curriculum. The arts are essential to learning, a way for children to "represent" the world around them and celebrate who they are as individuals and as a community.
  • Effective Community Service: Inspiring a life-long sense of civic participation, openness, caring and responsibility is an integral part of our school culture. Students apply academic skills and critical thinking as they develop, implement, and evaluate service learning projects at all grade levels.
  • Family Involvement: Families who join our school community become committed partners in their children's education, both supportive of and supported by our dedicated staff. Parents and students are encouraged to be active participants in the governance of our school.

This website serves to provide information to families and community members about what is happening in and around the school. You will be able to access school forms, newsletters, action team doc’s, council doc’s, and lots of other useful information about school events and classroom happenings. Members of the website can also use the space as a collaborative tool to organize the work that supports teaching and learning in the building.
