Mr. Steven Bollar Principal
The Mount Laurel Hartford School is home approximately 920 students in Grades
5 and 6, and 125 staff members, each school day. Daily instruction in the curriculum areas is enhanced at Hartford School
through special curricular projects conducted at both the fifth and sixth-grade
levels during the course of the school year. Students increase academic
skills through participation in curriculum-related clubs such as the Technology
Club, and the Homework Clubs.
Teachers who helped plan the educational program
for our school remain committed to guiding our student body towards the
attainment of high educational goals. The Mount Laurel Hartford School benefits greatly from the network of
support built and consistently maintained by parents and community members.
Our Parent-Teacher Organization has assisted with many school projects,
and its members give generously of their time through volunteer efforts.
