Primary School (K-4)
She is discovered.
Learning to be a kind and considerate person is valued in the Primary School. Time is spent each day discussing respect, responsibility, resilience, and kindness. Prime girls show high regard for themselves and others by:
- listening to each other
- working peacefully for a common goal
- and treating each other as they would want to be treated.
At HB, an emphasis on positive female role models fosters an environment in which a girl's self-esteem and confidence in her own potential for success take center stage.
Positive role models are actualized with the longstanding Notable Women tradition. Fourth graders thoroughly research female business execs, Olympic athletes, scientists, and all-around trailblazers. Dressed in full costume at the annual reception, the girls fully embody the persona of their selected woman.
