The way we relate to each other is central to our culture at HVA. It’s about having fun, being thoughtful, refraining from gossip, and always assuming the best of others. There is no them, there is only us.

Our culture is defined by a transcendent bond with each other that comes from dedication to our children. We always put their needs above our own.

Our culture is also defined by a profound respect for teachers. We trust our teachers to make decisions at every level: in the classroom, as grade teams, and as a school. And our teachers know that with trust comes responsibility: we hold ourselves accountable for the learning of our students. This trust and accountability engenders a powerful sense of ownership that lights us up.

Our culture ignites the passion and brings out the best performance of each person. We often hear our teachers say, “I could not imagine working any place else.”
