    We had 2 children come through Hardy and both are now at WHS. The core values of RISE established a meaningful and excellent foundation which continues to guide our children in their social interactions. Thank you to Gayle and the tremendous team at Hardy Elementary for your leadership and compassion!

    The Hardy School Community is the most diverse of all the elementary schools in Wellesley. This provides a wonderful learning experience on the elementary level. The TEST SCORES are the HIGHEST of all the elementary schools in Wellesley-a testimony to the excellent staff. Additionally having had children in one other elementary school in Wellesley in addition to Hardy I can say that Hardy is certainly the most welcoming school community in town.
