I would say a student at Hope would be taught compassion, caring and empathy every day in more ways than I could possibly list. Then there are the more obvious BIG teaching moments such as their annual Acts of Kindness Day where families are encouraged to spend the day together doing random acts of kindness and their fundraiser last year to raise money for clean water around the world.
This school had been such a blessing to our family. This is our 2nd year at Hope. Beyond having a God-loving, warm and fully committed staff, this school is offering my child an amazing education. Topics studied in 3rd grade included the Nile river, the Roman Empire and Astronomy. We also love that creating independent learners is a big priority at Hope Academy. My child has been appropriately challenged and teachers prioritize an individual student's strengths and weakness rather than government mandated testing. We are so grateful to have found this school.
Hope is more than a school. It's an amazing community of parents and staff members who partner together to educate students in engaging and meaningful ways. We love having more time with our kids and being so involved in their education. The staff is loving, nurturing, and cares deeply about building relationships with each individual student. Classrooms are well managed and there are few discipline problems. Any issues that arise are handled in a direct, gentle manner. The curriculum is fun and hands-on. We have been here for a few years and are absolutely thrilled with Hope. We can't imagine being anywhere else!
There are some great benefits to this school. However, students are not disciplined as they should be, if at all. Nothing is done about a student who makes the hand gesture of holding a gun, points it at his peers along with a shooting motion. This is just one of many instances. It seems as though, as long as parents are paying all things will be accepted.
Our school is a true community with families who truly care for one another. Our teachers are creative and innovative and take the time to get to know each child. Academically I feel that this school excels in creating excellent writing skills.
Hope Academy is hands down a wonderful school. The staff and teachers are amazingly dedicated and talented educators. The parents are very involved and create a true community. I appreciate the fact that the school curriculum incorporates Christian values. I feel blessed and honored to be a part of such a positive environment.
Hope has caring teachers and a hand-on approach to learning. We love the combination of learning at home and at school. "Homestudy" guides are thorough and easy to follow. A real community of education!
Hope academy partners with families through a university model meaning the children go to school 3 days a week and get to be home-schooled 2 days. We have absolutely loved the extra time at home with our 3 children and love the balance that Hope provides. The staff at Hope are gifted and passionate individuals who want to see our children thrive. Hope meets children at their individual level and the curriculum is deep allowing kids to discuss broad topics and think beyond the surface. We have a kindergartener, 3rd grader and 5th grader. All 3 children love school and show more and more indepependence and initiative in achieving excellence in their home study work and projects.
Hope Academy offers an outstanding environment for children to grow and thrive. The staff and administration are incredibly talented and fully invested in the students. I love the community that exists at Hope. Our daughter is thriving socially, academically, and spiritually due to the environment at Hope Academy. I am thoroughly enjoying the educational time with my daughter at home, and the collaboration with her classroom teacher is wonderful experience. The students at Hope embody the qualities of deeply caring, responsible and articulate citizens at a young age. I highly recommend this quality school. K. Grey
