The new A. D. Harvey Elementary School also known as Harveyville is the academic home to about 450 students in PreK4-fourth grade. Our dedicated teachers and staff are committed to the education of the whole student body through an environment that promotes an open line of communication throughout the entire school community. Everyone works together to meet and exceed the educational requirements of the State of Texas. This commitment involves the goal of making each child’s experience safe, enjoyable, and stimulating. We stress academic excellence through differentiated instruction and good character through extra-curricular service learning.
The students in Harveyville are heterogeneously grouped. Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies are the core academic focus areas for the students throughout the day. Fine Arts, Music, Computer Literacy, and Physical Education/Health complete the academic offerings. We continuously strive to make curricular improvements in order to meet the educational needs of all of our students.
Internet, including wireless access, is available in every classroom. Many teachers are incorporating the use of technology by utilizing multimedia presentations, and click-able worksheets throughout the curriculum. Teachers are also utilizing many types of assistive technology for our special populations. There are four modern computer labs available for students to use when accessing Happy Numbers Math, iStation Reading, Accelerated Reader, Living with Science Program, Think Through/Imagine Math, conducting research and completing class assignments, as well as a lab in the Harveyville Public Library.. Students and staff are also excited to use the data projectors, smart boards, laptops, netbooks, and iPads throughout the school.
A full-time school counselor works with students daily, by listening, encouraging, supporting and helping the children to develop throughout their time in school.
