- Welcome to Hope Lutheran School, one of the largest private Lutheran schools in the Pacific Northwest. When it was established in 1959, Hope Lutheran School opened its doors to 88 students in grades kindergarten through grade 5. Today, Hope enrolls over 200 students, preparing them for lifelong learning from preschool through eighth grade.
- Why choose Hope Lutheran School
- We are part of a community. Situated minutes from downtown Seattle, our school is part of a large and diverse urban community in which we actively participate through neighborhood events, educational fairs, and summer programs. Students travel from Vashon Island, Beacon Hill, Burien, and Federal Way to receive a rigorous Christian education that prepares them for success in their future academic career.
- We are a family.
- One of our teachers said it best, "(Hope is) large enough to be a community, small enough to be a family." One of the main reasons our school is unique is that we are small enough that every student becomes an integral part of our Hope Lutheran family. Each student is important and a gift from God. Our small class sizes ensure that no child is overlooked or left behind, as we nurture relationships among our students, teachers, staff, and parents.We are academic. Recognizing that each child has unique abilities, Hope nurtures every student in body, mind, and spirit. Our rigorous academic curriculum is enhanced by our low student-to-teacher ratio (13:1); specialty teachers in music, physical education, computers, art, and foreign language; and after-school sports and clubs. We are fully accredited through the National Lutheran School Association and Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges.
- We are Hope Lutheran School.
- We strive to give every student the best start possible in the journey that God has planned for them. At the heart of our school are our core values: Rigor, Respect, Responsibility, and Relationships; we call them the "4 R`s." A Hope education is about Relationships-building relationships between student and teacher, fostering relationships from student to student, and making sure that each student has an opportunity to build a personal relationship with Jesus. Every student is encouraged to grow in Respect toward others and the world around them, to take personal Responsibility for their actions, and to own the outcomes of those actions. The final "R" is Rigor. A rigorous education consists of multifaceted, challenging instruction that allows all students to achieve their highest potential.
