We have relocated all of the Harrisville School Board information to the
Harrisville School website.

Our students enter Harrisville-Wells Memorial School with a wide variety of abilities and experiences. We aim to understand, teach, and develop each individual, considering their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. The teaching staff and parent(s)/guardian(s) must consider the whole child in acquiring a sensitivity and commitment to the education process.
Learning is a lifelong process. In understanding this process, we present sequential learning experiences that build upon one another. Students meet reasonable expectations that challenge them towards future goals. We believe that students should be successful at their level of development. The learning environment fosters an atmosphere of cooperation and respect, developed by teachers, students, and parent(s)/guardian(s).
HWMS focuses on outdoor learning opportunities, striving to increase instructional time in our fields, forests, and local habitats.  All academic instruction is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and student progress is reported on a standards-based report card. HWMS students and staff continue to embrace our norms centered around social-emotional development, bullying prevention, child protection, kindness, courage, perseverance, and empathy.
In teaching the whole child, we must be aware of all aspects of the student's development. Students will be successful when they are respected, express their feelings and emotions, and cooperate with their peers.  
Harrisville has been designated as a federal landmark. We practice the responsibilities of citizenship and community living within the town, state, and nation. Our goal is to develop social skills and pride in the community that will allow each student to be a contributing member.
We believe that each student should have a positive self-image, be accepted as an individual, and be challenged by the learning process. We develop our school program towards these goals, continually seeking more effective ways to instill pride and achievement in each student.
