Linda G. Dwight - Superintendent, Harvard Public Schools

Welcome to our website!

It is my pleasure to serve as the Superintendent of Schools in Harvard, MA. Our district uses our Vision Statement as a guiding document for decision making and future planning. The part of the Vision that focuses us on the students' balancing academic achievement with personal well-being encourages us to maintain the traditional rigor while including new health and wellness options and infusing technology throughout the curriculum. We continue to evaluate every aspect of our district to ensure that we are moving closer to our vision of success.
