Our Schools

Hawley Public Schools is home to approximately 900 students in grades K-12. Recent new construction and remodeling of existing structures has placed our facilities as some of the best in the area. Great facilities, small class sizes and a variety of course offerings make us an excellent choice for your child’s educational setting.

Hawley High School offers a wide variety of academic courses. Students are able to enroll in vocational, technical, traditional and advanced courses. Hawley High School offers nearly 30 college level credits without leaving our building.

Along with the excellent educational opportunities students are also able to participate in a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities including:

  • Knowledge Bowl
  • Speech
  • Close-Up

The advantage of a school our size is that students have an opportunity to participate in many different activities and they do not have to specialize.
