About New Hope
Casa Gracia Non-Chartered School – New Hope welcomes all who come to our campus including students, parents, volunteers, and visitors. Our campus opened in the fall of 2016 and is located within the grounds of an Upbring Children’s Shelter. We are a non-chartered school located in McAllen, Texas. New Hope serves female students in grades 6-8; however, occasionally students in lower grades are also enrolled. Our educational goal is to educate and empower our students so that they can self-advocate and succeed in life.
Teachers provide an educational environment designed to fit our students’ unique needs. The majority of our students are in the first year of instruction in a U.S. school are usually at the beginning levels of the English Proficiency Standards (ELPS) and most have had limited or interrupted learning in their native countries.
Our school inspires excellence, promotes creative thought, and celebrates the cultural diversity of our students. Teachers provide a supportive environment to help our students acclimate to their new country. The school’s ultimate goal is the acquisition of academic language while promoting English as a Second Language skill in Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies. Physical Education, Art classes, and wellness activities are also promoted within the curriculum.
