Welcome to Hope Elementary School

Hope Elementary Charter is a tuition-free public school that serves students from Kindergarten through Fifth grades.  We are located in the historic Oakwood neighborhood and housed in the Barbee School Building that was erected in 1924. The school's progressive, high-quality, student-centered educational program expands educational choices for parents and their children in the public school system, supports a nurturing community of learners, and focuses on enhancing the academic growth while nurturing social development in every student.  

Hope Elementary Charter stakeholders are proud to announce that we have vested in The Leader In Me program, which is an elementary school approach to Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.  The program produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, increased engagement among teachers and parents, and equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
