Creates a learning environment that allows students to apply classroom knowledge to a real world setting.
Provides students authentic, hands on learning through the creation and experience of a miniature society reinforced by educators.
Provides motivations and initiative to attend and stay in school.
Components are based on academics, volunteerism (What can I do right now to make the world that I live in a better place?), art and music leadership, responsibility, and job experience processes.
Harvey Society will cultivate and develop thinkers and leaders. We will practice community service, which will teach students what they can do right now to make the world they live in a better place and give students opportunities to become life-long, caring and productive citizens.
Harvey's Statement of Beliefs
We believe in teaching our students how to make a difference in the world right now through
academic learning, leadership and volunteerism.
As students learn, they will lead by example in the school and community they live in.
Students are thinkers that become problem solvers who help the community grow and make it a better place to live.
Students will live healthy lives and will promote living a healthy life to others.

Most of our components work around academic lessons. Many events take place during PE time (students are guaranteed 135 minutes of PE time first), lunch time and after school. Two exceptions are mail time that takes place on Wednesday for 20 minutes and recycling time that takes place on Thursdays at 1:50 for 20 minutes.
At Harvey Elementary School, we believe that social and emotional development of students is important to helping them achieve success. Through these events, our children learn not only academics but also about teamwork, individual and group responsibility, physical strength and endurance, competition, diversity and a sense of culture and community. Activities can also provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and are thus considered part of a well-rounded education.
