About Us

Hope Charter Elementary is a Kindergarten through 5th grade school located in the historic Oakwood neighborhood and housed in the Barbee School Building that was erected in 1924, in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Hope Elementary is proud to be embarking on becoming a Stephen Covey "The Leader In Me" school.  As a Leader In Me School, students will discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey's book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The Leader In Me schools receive national recognition for their emphasis on developing leadership in young children.  

Incorporating The Leader In Me practices within our school's environment and curriculum will help our students become prepared to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: motivation, problem-solving skills, trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, academic achievement, a sense of teamwork, and valuing diversity in a global market.
