Uniquely HS

Uniquely Hope Springs

We are able to have many unique events and experiences because we are a small school. We go on several field trips throughout the year. In the past we have been to places like Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center, Rock The Presidents -Cobb Energy Performing Arts Ctr., Atlanta Ballet, GA Aquarium, Cyclorama, Tellus Museum. We offer study hall time each day for students to work on homework or other class assignments. Every Friday we bring in pizza for lunch!

Student Life

Hope Springs hosts many fun activities throughout the year. These include events such as Grandparents lunch, Spirit Wear Days, Field Day, and holiday celebrations. We also participate in community service such as our annual November food drive.

Our school is located on a charming 2 acre site. We have a beautiful outdoor area behind the school with a porch, play structure, swings, small basketball court, tetherball poles, and a large green space for playing. In front we have a fish pond where students love to watch our resident goldfish and other aquatic life.
At this time we do not offer after school clubs or athletics. We encourage you to find something outside of school that your child enjoys!

All Pro Dads – One hour meeting each month for dads to join their kids at school for a fun, memory-making event.
Moms in Prayer – This group is an international ministry that impacts children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray. Currently the group meets from 8:30 – 9:30 on Monday mornings. All mothers, aunts, and grandmothers are welcome to join.

Every year we plan an exciting field trip for our students! This trip is usually in the fall and lasts 4-6 days. In the weeks leading up to the field trip we study the sites we’ll be visiting.
