Hayes PK-8 School is developing “ today’s Pacesetters into tomorrow’s leaders,” as its leadership and faculty are embracing new teaching and learning strategies, such as problem-based learning and design thinking.  Hayes has developed strong partnerships over the past two years with participation in the Straight A’s (Arts Advance Academic Achievement) program as well as being selected to partner with the A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club to create the Center for a New Generation (CNG).  Hayes is living up to its faculty’s motto…”We can, We will, Watch us!”
