School Notes

Hope Partnership has reopened for fully in-person instruction with a refreshed program designed to help students become balanced, continuous learners who are academically and emotionally prepared for high school success. Hope focuses on:
  • academic skill building that offers a range of learning opportunities to meet the needs of all students, including basic skills instruction, advanced interdisciplinary instruction in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Writing;
  • music talent development includes instruction in music theory and history, as well as in recorder and basic keyboard. Individual and small group instrument lessons prepare students to participate in school-wide ensembles and public performances;
  • interdisciplinary art program that introduces the elements of art through engaging projects that support learning in other subject areas;
  • health and wellness advisory uses strategies for building knowledge about nutrition, physical exercise and emotional health, as well as digital media safety. Hope's plan to remain open during the pandemic includes performing daily health assessments for teachers and students; wearing masks; social distancing; teaching and modeling good hygiene practices; and in-school COVID testing. The school recommends vaccination for all eligible students. 
  • technology and research that promote digital learning using Chromebooks and Smart Boards in the classroom, and a range of interactive digital platforms for language arts, math, writing, and social studies;
  • after school enrichment and summer programs* that expose students to an array of cultural experiences and experiential activities that spark understanding of academic material in exciting ways and that help make connections between school work and the real world. (*Due to the COVID pandemic, the after school program is on hiatus for fall 2021.) 
Hope's Graduate Support Program guides students and their families through the high school application and selection process, and assists them with college and scholarship applications, and with work readiness.

Family engagement is critical to student success at Hope. Families are encouraged to partner with the school in helping students to develop good work habits and the necessary discipline for academic success. Families receive a weekly newsletter to apprise them of key curricular aspects of the program, to alert them to student success, special activities, and to promote upcoming events. Finally, Hope's Family Advisory Council provides the school's administration and staff with advice and feedback that benefits the school community. Students and families tell us our school community is like family.
