Good Hope Country Day School is an amazingly inclusive community, one that lives the values of connection, compassion, and respect for all, every day. It is a school driven to provide the best possible education for each of the children we serve, a school that provides a panoply of educational, artistic, athletic, and social opportunities at every grade level, and a school that positions its students to succeed in colleges and universities on island, across the U.S., and all over the world.
Education is so much more than a “piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, abilities,” as Thomas Moore put it. It’s an art, he said. It’s a lifelong commitment to the betterment of ourselves and the world around us. It’s a partnership among fellow human beings, one in which we connect deeply and authentically with the people and peoples with whom we come into contact.
At GHCDS, parents, teachers, and students form a close-knit community committed to connecting deeply and authentically with one another, a community determined to deliver our school’s core values of “scholarship, citizenship, integrity, respect,” a community dedicated to preparing students “to excel in college” and “better their island and the world,” as our mission proudly states.
We are a community of big hopes and big dreams.
