My 2nd grader has an autism diagnosis. Although he is high functioning, he has his challenges, quirks and he is behind in his learning goals. We are brand new at Hope Elementary School this year. In the first 6 weeks of school, Ms. Nielsen and The Learning Center Team have connected with my child to create a happiness that he has never had at school and inspired him to achieve goals that our last school couldn't. Goals that never seemed to be met, are now happening in a very happy child. I am impressed, grateful and confident that Hope Elementary School has the talent to help my child happily thrive at school.
The Principal, Teachers and Staff have created a culture of honesty, integrity and fairness through weekly Friday assemblies where topics are discussed, community members are often invited to attend (i.e. local veterans and accomplished citizens), and the school mascot (a HAWK) reminds everyone what it means to be a hawk: Help Another With Kindness. Regularly, you will see Teachers, Staff and Parents picking up trash, helping troubled students and reassuring each other as they make good choices throughout the day. Together, it is a strong community setting a great example for the students every day.
This school is top-rated for many reasons. The Principal is hands-on, responsive, transparent and leads by example. The Teachers and Staff are incredible, go above and beyond regularly, are thoughtful and compassionate. They all work together like a well-oiled machine to create the perfect learning environment where every single student can thrive. It is an amazing school because of these exceptional people. We are so grateful for all that they do to help our students (and families) to learn, grow and thrive.
We have had 2 kids go all the way through Hope & our 3rd is in 4th there. What a wonderful school! I can honestly say we have had great teachers every kid, every year. The school community is caring and fun. The principal is amazing, a great, hands on leader who cares for each family at Hope. Can not say enough good things about this school!
What an amazing school! From the principal to the teachers, the librarian, health tech... Everyone at this school truely cares about each and every kid. All 3 of our children attended Hope & I am grateful every day for the wonderful education they received there.
Our family would like to thank Thalia Arnold for going the extra mile to make sure our daughter is successful! She has an open door policy that both my daughter and I appreciatet. And she always has a great attitude about the work she does! Thank you!
My children have been attending Hope Elementary for the past four years and we couldn't be happier! The teachers have been wonderful and the principal is very involved with the students! Hope is a great school experience for children!
My son spent six years at Hope. He was lucky to have 3 excellent teachers during his six years there. The principal doesn't care at all about parents concerns .... LOTS OF BULLIES ! Happy that my kid is done with this school.
We were new to Hope last year, moving back to Carlsbad from Seattle after an eight-year absence. Our son is in 5th grade this year so sadly this is our last. Mr. Tubbs, the principle is a great guy; funny, loves the children and goes out of his way to interact with them, takes time to get to know them, makes sure they are happy and even takes a personal interest above and beyond. Mr. Tubbs stays late to decorate the school for events; he dresses up for holidays, and has a great drive for raising funds to make sure the school has the resources it needs. The teachers are wonderful, this year we feel very lucky to have Mrs. Lawrence, who is the best teacher we have ever had. The parents are friendly and helpful and very welcoming, we have a great time when we volunteer for school events. Hope is a wonderful school and we would recommend it to everyone.
