We believe that God created us in all different shapes, sizes, and colors, giving us unique talents, gifts, and abilities. We work hard to challenge each student wherever they currently are in their academic learning, with opportunities for advanced work or resource support if needed. We offer small guided reading groups during literacy to help students reach their highest potential. After lengthy research, in fall 2012 our school adopted “Math in Focus” curriculum, based on Singapore math, which challenges all students in their math abilities. In fall 2013, we updated our science curriculum to include more hands-on inquiry-based learning with the implementation of “Interactive Science” for K-5 students and Full Option Science System kits (FOSS) for middle school students.

Core subjects at Hope Lutheran School include math, literacy, history, religion, and science, with specialists teaching technology, physical education, Spanish, and music to all grades. Our small class sizes (an average student to teacher ratio of 18:1) ensure each child’s unique needs are met in a caring yet rigorous environment.
