An interesting place to study is Thomas S. Hart Middle School, a California Distinguished School. They find beautiful state-of-the-art classrooms when students enter Hart Middle School and a warm welcome staff willing to use both in-class and out-of-class opportunities to build a sense of community and to ensure that every student feels valued and connected to the school.


Hart's architecturally award-winning design, set in the vibrant Hacienda business park, is ideally tailored to the area. The central quad area allows students to meet before, during and after school in a secure, supervised area containing sturdy benches and picnic tables with colorful umbrellas for student use. The quad area also has a 20-foot by 30-foot shade system. Sports fields, a track and a 17,000-square-foot gymnasium are other facilities — the nucleus of our wide-ranging athletic program.


Their outstanding workers are known for their ability to educate students in middle school and for their high level of knowledge and professionalism. Hart workers are enthusiastically taking on the task of building a student culture. Their scores for API, CST and STAR are signs that Hart students are on the road to success. As in previous years, the API report from the school shows that Hart continues to achieve steady and sustained growth in student achievement. As the information shows, Hart has a lot to celebrate, validated not only by the dramatic rise in scores over its history, but also by the continuity with which those rises have been accomplished. Clearly, Hart workers and students are looking for relentless change.


Hart Middle School involves employees, parents and students in a joint decision-making process. Via the Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA), school site committee, student council, back-to-school night, parent/student handbook, telephone calls, Hart website, e-mail, teacher websites, Q Link, principal's coffees, and the school newsletter, school-wide information is circulated. By participating in the school site committee, PTSA and several other volunteer opportunities, parents are encouraged to become active members of Hart. Active involvement of parents and constructive engagement of Hart's programs and teachers create a more successful environment for all students.



In August of 2000, Thomas S. Hart Middle School opened its doors to students. This state-of-the-art facility contains all the training facilities needed to make it an excellent building complex for their students' education.

  • Hart Middle School was constructed with developer fees and state school building monies. This construction means that our school facilities will provide the best environment for the education of our students and our quest for excellence in student achievement.

  • The two-story science building, for example, provides four large well-equipped lab stations. These stations are separated by supply and work areas complete with showers in the event of an emergency.

  • The impressive library features book stacks that are inviting and easily accessible for student use. The thin client computer stations for internet access, added in 2007, have added to the usability for the students. All new facilities are designed to enhance exemplary teaching and learning.

  • The academic facilities are matched with spacious areas for physical education, including sports fields, a track, an extraordinary 17,000-square-foot gymnasium and a newly constructed long-jump pit, courtesy of local donations.

  • As a result of growth, four new classrooms were constructed in 2007. These classrooms were added to the northeast corner of the campus.

  • Hart Middle School was named after Thomas S. Hart, a well-loved teacher, principal and assistant superintendent of the Pleasanton Unified School District.
