While many students enter our academic program at least one to two grade levels behind, they begin to thrive academically at Hope. As a school, our 2012 test scores are our best yet.

Though our school’s results are quite extraordinary, we tell parents here at Hope to not read too much into standardized test scores.
At Hope, report cards include grades, but we also evaluate a student’s growth in Christian character. Standardized tests cannot measure virtues such as respect, wisdom, discipline, humility, honesty, and lovethat requires discerning parents and teachers.
With that caveat, we see extraordinary results from our students compared to neighborhood schools. We continue to be amazed with how inner city kids thrive when challenged and supported.
Thank the Lord with us for how he is working in the hearts and minds of our students.
