The New Hope-Solebury School District takes pride in its commitment to
excellence. We strive to inspire and empower our students to become passionate,
confident, life-long learners, with the skills and strength of character to contribute
to a diverse and ever-changing world.
PHILOSPHY OF EDUCATION
The New Hope-Solebury School District views every student as unique, important and deserving
of personalized instruction. This approach to education is possible because of the district’s small
size and the commitment of its Board of School Directors, administration, teachers and staff,
parents and community to high-quality education.
The district offers a meaningful, purposeful and holistic approach to learning, which builds
connections among subject areas and calls upon students to be active learners. Using the critical
skills of computation, problem solving, reading, writing and discussion, students learn how to
learn in a supportive setting where students and teachers come to know each other well.
Classes are small, with approximately 1600 students enrolled in grades Kindergarten through 12.
Enrichment is important because many students are high achievers. However, the district’s
academic philosophy applies to all students. Teachers work toward raising academic
expectations; they focus on the students, not on labels; and they encourage all students to
challenge themselves. At New Hope-Solebury, a unique benefit is the individual and personal
attention given to our students.
We are a community of learners–students, teachers, administrators, and other employees. The
district’s curriculum encourages developing understandings, asking essential questions and
applying new learnings. Our teachers are enrolled in continuing education courses, consistently,
and many have earned advanced degrees.
