Mission Statement New Hope School strives for academic excellence while teaching God-centered universal values and service to others as the basis for personal integrity, harmony in the family and peace in the world. The School Day All grades begin the day with inspirational readings from various scriptural, historical and cultural sources to help our students gain a deeper understanding of their own identity and value.
The importance of moral and ethical principles are stressed as a foundation for healthy character development.
In addition to its academic program, the school places great emphasis on its character education program, which promotes the themes of " Respect, Responsibility and Service." Throughout the school year, in regular classes and special sessions, students are instructed in timeless virtues, such as honesty, fairness and compassion, and are encouraged to participate in service projects for the community. Portrait of the Graduate Upon graduating from New Hope School, our goal is that students will 1) demonstrate academic excellence and a sense of personal integrity; 2) live a life of respect and consideration for others; and 3) practice living in service to others and desire to make a positive contribution to the greater community and world.

School Reviews

  • Recommended May 24, 2014 - One day as I picked up my first grader from New Hope School, I was touched by the sight of a much older student guiding her in how to skillfully kick a soccer ball. This interaction is one of the strengths in which a smaller school population excels. In addition to the cross grade camaraderie and nurturing, I have felt that my daughter is a priority for every teacher she is with during the school day. At the New Hope School, I have found that care is taken to promote and encourage a childâ''s inner strengths through their character education, while providing the scaffolding necessary to help the child meet academic milestones. New Hope School has been a gift to my daughter as she has been given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and most importantly spiritually. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 21, 2013 - Great school with a safe environment, small class sizes, a challenging curriculum and experienced teachers. My child went all the way through from first grade and is now in honors classes in high school. New Hope School gave him a great preparation. - Posted by Parent
