Principal's Message

Welcome to Phoebe A. Hearst Elementary School! It is a privilege and honor to serve as the principal of an amazing school focused on supporting the needs of students, families, staff and community members.

At Hearst, our goal is to provide a comprehensive, high quality, and meaningful education to all students. Our staff is committed to collaborating collectively to create an inclusive learning environment to promote the growth of students academically, socially, and emotionally. Students are assessed regularly to develop effective instructional strategies to address their needs and monitor their progress. We believe that each student is capable of reaching their highest potential with the support of staff and ongoing partnerships with parents and the community. Our efforts contribute to shaping successful opportunities for every student.

At Hearst, we value parent and community involvement. Our Hearst Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works closely with site staff to support student achievement and school culture as well as enhance school programs. We invite you to partner with us to support your child's educational experience by joining the Hearst PTA, School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) or other committees of interest throughout the school year. Your participation will support the growth and development of our school programs.

Together, we can create endless possibilities for our Hearst Monarchs!
