About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Hope Community Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Hope Community Academy Reviews
I have been a teacher at Hope Community Academy for 10 years. Our school is a fantastic place where children of all academic and language abilities can be successful. We have curriculum that offers enrichment for those students who are above grade level. For struggling students, we have unique safety nets in place such as Response to Intervention (RTI). English language learners are supported through a framework called SIOP in which all classroom teachers have been highly trained. This framework supports students' language development within the regular classroom setting. We have a strong technology focus which includes interactive white boards in the classrooms and technology classes for all students. Our teachers are extremely talented and dedicated to the success of all students! Above all, the students at Hope are among the friendliest, hardworking groups of children I've seen at any school.
This school has great students and families. There is a feeling of community throughout the school; the students are respectful, the staff is welcoming and energenic, and the hallways are lined with student work.
