The HGR Pod School

icon why

  • We feel a strong sense of community obligation to help with the current state of public education.  This will be a not-for-profit endeavor for HGR.  
  • We have a tremendous facility that lends itself to this type of venture.  
  • We have children of our own in the North Andover elementary school system.

We’re expecting spots to fill up quickly, so don’t delay. See below for details.
Sign up is first-come, first-serve.
