Cultivate curiosity. Explore with us.
HBS is starting a fresh chapter in their history. Spearheaded by a coalition of parents, community members and teachers, the new HBS is now partnered with the Providence Country Day School, and preserves the strengths of their past as a laboratory school while seizing opportunities for renewal as an independent school committed to nurturing curious young learners. 

It's a great time to rediscover HBS. 
Located in Providence, Rhode Island, on the tree-lined campus of Rhode Island College, HBS is a PreK-5 school community that values learning through play and guided exploration. Students at HBS benefit from a personalized, interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to education. As an independent school, HBS will add to its robust curriculum with a larger focus on diversity, inclusion and community engagement.
