From our Principal
Dear Scholars and Parents,
I am Dr. Chai Lee. I would like to welcome you to HOPE Community Academy. At HOPE Community Academy, our teachers plan every lesson focusing on: Reading, Writing, Inquiry, and Collaboration. That means, our young scholars are taught to: Read with strategies, write with purpose, ask high and challenging questions to enhance their understanding of the content, and communicate their understanding of the content using the newly learned vocabulary words. Our young scholars are actively engaged in well-planned academic activities throughout the day. In addition to our academic focus, we train our young scholars to respect each other, to use their native language when appropriate, and we establish a strong academic foundation for every scholar. We want to make sure each young scholar thinks about college, a career choice, and learns about his/her career choice early.
We put a lot of resources to the primary grades to make sure our young scholars can read and write at or above grade level by third grade. For example, every grade level has a general education teacher, an ESL teacher, a reading teacher, and several paraprofessionals to help our scholars with reading and writing strategies. With the resources and highly qualified teachers, HOPE Community Academy provides the best pathway for your child to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Please contact me at (612) 432-2811 or email: Chailee@hope-school.org if you have any questions or would like to visit HOPE Community Academy.
