Welcome to Hardy Elementary School! We are located next to San Diego
State University and enjoy a strong partnership with the university. Hardy is
an innovative elementary school with rich traditions in academic excellence,
character development, artistic expression, physical fitness, and parent
Our mission is to collaborate as a team—principal, staff, students, parents,
and community members—in developing in our students the academic,
social, physical, and character skills needed for a successful life. We seek to
foster the love of learning, instill a strong sense of perseverance, and build
an ever-expanding pool of strategies to maximize each student’s potential.
Hardy is part of the Henry High School Cluster, a collaborative organization
of area principals, school staff members, and parents united to build
purposeful partnerships in pursuit of academic excellence. Our strong ties to
the middle schools in the area as well as to Patrick Henry High School help
to ensure that our students have a cohesive educational experience from
kindergarten through grade 12 that prepares them at the highest levels for
college and career.
Our collective vision is best captured in the words of William Blake:
In the universe, there are things that are known, things that are unknown,
and in between, there are doors.
At Hardy Elementary School, we are in the business of opening doors.
