Hargill Elementary has been successful because the staff embraces Hargill's motto, "It Takes a Village." Working together, "the village" has successfully transformed the academic stigma once associated with Hargill Elementary into a positive.

Setting high expectations and using best practices such as small group instruction, differentiated instruction, hands- on science labs, and the integration of technology in every classroom, has made a significant difference in closing the performance gaps at Hargill Elementary.

Through grade level meetings, teachers and administrators monitor data with fidelity to target instruction to meet the needs of all Hargill Cubs so that students can be academically successful. Individualized parent conferences have also proven to be effective for Hargill Elementary. Ultimately, holding everyone accountable for student academic achievement is the major contributor to Hargill's success.
