Hatch Elementary is committed to helping children become lifelong learners in an environment that values academic excellence and global understanding. The school is unique in the District because two pathways are provided for students. The first is a traditional English program. The second is a two-way English-Spanish immersion program. Other key identifying characteristics include a partnership with Stanford University for student teachers and participation in the international Amity Intern Program. Parents are active members of the Hatch community and support the school in many wonderful ways. Hatch is the recipient of numerous recognitions including the 2011 San Mateo County Reading Association Award for Principal's Book of the Month Program.
Every student shall be empowered to achieve the highest of skills academically, linguistically, and socially while developing self-esteem and creativity. We believe education is the shared responsibility of parents, students, and the community in partnership with the school.
