Welcome to Hope Elementary School !  I am so pleased to welcome our new students as well as our returning students. We have made many recent improvements to our campus and we continue to expand our extra-curricular programs to ensure that all students may make the most of their time and explore a broad variety of interests. We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information you need to be active participants in your child’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go. As always, I am happy to receive feedback and suggestions and my door is always open. Here’s to another great year!

Who we are:

Hope Elementary School sits on Route 116 as you enter Hope Village. The historic brick building has that charming schoolhouse feel both inside and out. The entire school community prides itself on a collaborative, nurturing, and trusting environment where all stakeholders feel supported and encouraged to take risks, stretch themselves academically, socially, and emotionally through perseverance and a growth mindset. Building relationships with families, staff, students, and the community is what drives our success. Countless visitors and families have commented that as they enter the school they can sense the positive vibe that permeates the space.

   As the only Title I one school in the district, we utilize our federal funds to strengthen teaching and learning to address the needs and challenges of our disadvantaged population. We continuously analyze data to identify gaps and implement evidence-based programs and strategies to close them. The diversity a Title I school creates is what makes Hope unique.

   At Hope, we are particularly proud of the opportunities students have to feel connected to staff and one another. We have a shared commitment to provide deliberate ways to engage our learners in clubs to strengthen their bond with school. These activities are offered during the day and include Lego Club, Art Club, Student Council, Chorus, and Yoga. In addition, our PTA works endlessly to coordinate family events, after-school enrichment programs, and fund assemblies and field trips. One of the biggest takeaways is that we honor the work of our entire community and embrace our “we not me” attitude. We not only care for the needs of the community but more importantly we care for one another. This shared responsibility is why we say “there’s no place like Hope.” Please search #HopeSchoolRI on Twitter to see firsthand the wonderful things going on in our in school.


The mission of the Hope Elementary School Community is to provide all students with a strong foundation of knowledge and skills by creating a safe and nurturing environment to become responsible, successful and contributing citizens in a continually changing world.


The vision of our school is to prepare and motivate students by instilling in them critical reasoning skills, respect for themselves and one another and a commitment to excellence, kindness and perseverance.
