A Message from the Principal

Founded on principles and values that are universal to all the great faiths.

New Hope is well on its way to fulfilling the school founders' vision of creating a prototype school that will transform education in the 21st century.

Founded on principles and values that are universal to all the great faiths, New Hope is committed to supporting parents to raise the next generation of leaders. The school is a richly diverse environment, racially, ethnically, and religiously. Emphasis is placed on appreciating such differences and also on experiencing one's own creative nature through the arts, music, writing, drama, and dance. Through technology, math, and science, students gain skills to navigate our world and to experience ample opportunities to explore their own talents, interests, and passions.

Statement on Faith, Devotions, and Traditions.

Our school is grounded in the belief that there is one God and that humanity is one family. We include God, and the basic values that are common to all the great religions, in all that we do. We strive to enlighten students to the beauty of how people express their faith rather than focus on a particular faith or doctrinal point of view.
