Hickory Day School

2535 21st Ave NE, Hickory, NC 28601

HDS' developmentally appropriate lower school (grades pre-K-6) stresses basic skills development while gradually shifting the learning focus from the concrete to the abstract. Children at this level take part in the IB Primary Years Program. During the middle school years (grades 7 and 8), children gain increasing levels of independence as they prepare for public and independent high schools. Computers are present in all classrooms, in accordance with the school's emphasis on technology. Boys and girls in grades 6-8 satisfy a 20-hour community service requirement each year.
