"Rafe Esquith is one of that rare breed of teachers whose influence extends well beyond the classroom.   His remarkable career stands as a testament to what passion, imagination, and energy can achieve. "
- Sir Christopher Meyer,

Our Mission

The Hobart Shakespeareans is a public school classroom designed to improve the quality of life for economically disadvantaged children.   Working together with staff, parents, and our community, we are determined to establish a level playing field to give each child the equal opportunity promised in the Constitution.   Through disciplined study and high expectations, the children acquire the knowledge, skills, and grace necessary to earn their share of the American Dream.
