“The Hayground faculty is wise, caring, and conscientious—an extraordinary group of educators delivering an extraordinary education.”   Jonathan Silin, EDD, Graduate Faculty, Bank Street College of Education

Faculty

Hayground believes that great teachers make a great school. Our faculty is composed of teachers who are themselves lifelong learners, as passionate about a particular domain—history, art, science, literature, mathematics—as they are about the craft of teaching.
