    Welcome to the Maria Hastings School website. The Hastings School, one of six elementary schools in Lexington, provides a multi-disciplinary and differentiated educational experience for 440 students. Our school motto: Everyone Belongs, Everyone Learns, is at the heart of our work. The entire staff believes that all children can learn. We put our mission into practice by matching teaching strategies with children’s learning needs.  Our school community includes a highly supportive and active Parent Teacher Association.

    This website is a communication tool designed to provide you with information about the school system, the Hastings School, and the students, staff, and families who make up our vibrant school community.
