Hola is a Spanish/English bilingual K-5 charter school (applying to expand thru 8th) that has created a diverse, tight-knit and vibrant community for our two kids. They love it. We chose it so our kids would learn a new language, but it's actually offered them a different way of looking at the world. The curriculum is pretty rigorous with an emphasis on language and science/tech. Most families are not native Spanish speakers and the kids still do well because their language immersion starts right in K. In the most recent NJASK test, 89% of third graders passed English Language Arts (66% statewide); 98% passed Math with 52% Advanced Proficient (78% statewide). In fourth grade 70% passed English Language Arts (59% statewide), 83% passed Math with 48% scoring Advanced Proficient (78% statewide), and 96% passed Science, 78% Advanced Proficient (44% statewide). The scores on this site are outdated. The PTO and student council are active and there are lots of sports, performing arts and other extracurricular activities. It's a new school and not without hiccups, but it's amazing to have a public option in Hoboken that looks ahead and focuses on the skills our kids really need.

The richness of the curriculum rivals of the other Charter Schools and private schools in the area, the classrooms are all new, class sizes small, the teachers are dedicated and the Director's experience, passion and subject matter expertise is unsurpassed and..... the kids are getting all this in 2 languages! It's unbelievable what young children can learn in a second language, and their test scores are proof! Sending my child to Hola is a special gift that she will have with her for her entire life! There were some hiccups during the first + year, but since the new Director has come on board, I truly believe it is if not on its way to be being the best grade school in Hoboken.
