School Notes

Hope's Middle School Program is 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;
  • health and wellness advisory uses research-based pro-active strategies for building knowledge about nutrition, physical exercise and emotional health, as well as digital media safety;
  • 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 status of the after school program for fall 2021 is yet to be determined).
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 also receive a monthly newsletter and/or virtual family meetings to apprise them of key curricular aspects of the program, to alert them to student success, 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.
