Excellence in education is when we do everything that we can to make sure they become everything that they can.

Welcome

Welcome to Hop Brook School!  
It is my great pleasure to continue working with students, families and staff at Hop Brook School.  We pride ourselves in educating the whole child: academically, socially and emotionally.   
 
The Vision of the Graduate is our mission. As students engage with competencies in their classrooms and their learning experiences every day, they will have many opportunities to practice and explore as they work to become our Vision of the
Graduate.
 
Hop Brook School follows the Responsive Classroom approach, where we model expected behaviors and start each day with a Morning Meeting in all of our classrooms.  Hop Brook Staff is committed to improve educational experiences each year for our students. We model risk taking, growth mindset and perseverance each day in our classrooms for our students.
 
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or require additional information.
