An MSA-CESS accredited school, we help students achieve academic excellence and good character.
New Hope School is a private elementary and middle school located in Clifton, NJ. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and independent character development by teaching God-centered universal values and service to others as the basis for personal integrity, harmony in the family, and peace in the world.
As principal of New Hope School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year, my 15th year with this learning community. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms. It is our mission to teach our students God-centered universal values and service to others as the basis for personal integrity, harmony in the family, and peace in the world. We look forward to partnering with you in the coming year to achieve this.
Great News! Our students' annual Terra Nova standardized test scores are in and the results indicate one of our best years in terms of overall averages. Three grades were above the 90th percentile and four more were above the 80th percentile, meaning that our students performed better than 80-90% of comparable students from around the country. Let's all give a big shout out to our remarkable students!
As we wind down another school year, I hope that you can look back and see the ways that you grew these past nine months. Think about what you learned and how you might apply those things in the future. At New Hope School, as you know, we are just as concerned about the growth of your character and heart as much as we are about your developing your stock of knowledge. We want you all to become good people that in the future will do a lot of good things to help make the world a better place. As the saying goes, “the children are the future.” You will one day be citizens with all the rights and responsibilities that go with it, and, hopefully as well, mature adults in your minds and hearts. For now, though, I just wish you all a great summer. Have lots of fun, and I look forward to seeing many of you again in September.
