A variety of learning strategies are implemented throughout the schools that include cooperative learning, technology, math manipulatives, peer tutoring and hands-on science.
The middle school serves grades six through eight. The basic courses are offered, along with some exploratory courses that enrich the educational experiences of the students.
Our high schools cover a range of programs from technical preparation to the basic courses and the Dual Credit Program and Advanced Placement classes for college preparation. A variety of electives are available to meet the interests and talents of our students. Block scheduling has been incorporated to allow students more subject variety and to conform with the Tennessee Diploma Project.
Hardeman County School's H.E.A.R.T.

HCS' H.E.A.R.T. is the state model for the Response to Intervention (RtI) portion of No Child Left Behind.
