Academically, Hayt strives to challenge students to be their best. Hayt offers Middle School Algebra and each grade has a Gifted Comprehensive classroom beginning in first grade. This fall, our school received a congratulatory letter from the mayor acknowledging significant gains in our math scores.
All classrooms are equipped with Smart Boards, document cameras and computers. Hayt has numerous laptop and iPad carts for student use. We recently upgraded our computer lab with the latest Dell computers featuring large screens. Hayt’s library is one of the largest elementary libraries in CPS and all classrooms have their own class libraries.
Hayt seeks to educate students beyond the classroom; enrichment classes include a science lab, computer lab, art and drama. In addition, Hayt is the only elementary school in Chicago that teaches German and a world language.
Hayt offers a variety of after-school programs, sports and clubs beginning at 3rd grade.
