Principal's Message

Welcome/Bienvenue to our Hopewell Avenue Public School Website! 

Opened in 1910, Hopewell has a rich history of academic excellence.  Hopewell is currently home to 860 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8.  We offer programs in English, Early French Immersion, Middle French Immersion and have one Intermediate Behaviour Intervention Program class. We are located in the heart of Old Ottawa South.  Our urban setting has led to a creative use of outdoor spaces.  Our kindergarten children have a dedicated yard, primary children maximize a large tarmac area that includes treed areas surrounded by timberwork, an outdoor classroom and an amazing play structure.  Our Junior and Intermediate student access an outdoor space across the street from our school with a large tarmac area, play structure and turf field. 

At Hopewell you will find a wonderful community of learning.  Staff, students and parents work together towards common goals – academic excellence, social and emotional development, and positive attitudes.  Our students are encouraged to become life-long learners and responsible citizens.  The Community of Character and a focus on OCDSB Exit Outcomes are actively promoted.  Becoming excellent global citizens is an ongoing focus for our school.  Students at Hopewell engage in many humanitarian initiatives globally and in their own community.

Keeping open communication between home and school is a priority for our Hopewell school community.  Follow Hopewell’s Twitter account as well as this website for timely information and updates.

At Hopewell we value our supportive and involved parent community and welcome volunteers!  Our Hopewell Avenue Public School Council meets monthly to work in partnership with the school team to best support our students.  School Council news and updates are available through our website.

Our dynamic school is special place to learn and grow.  We have a culture of high expectations for our students.  We nurture critical thinking and encourage life-long learning! Hopewell staff is dedicated in their efforts to offer wonderful experiences for students both within and beyond the walls of the classroom.  With a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, teachers pursue professional development opportunities to deliver the best programs possible for our students.  Students at Hopewell are engaged in their learning and are excited to participate in the variety of extra-curricular experiences that are offered.

We are proud of Hopewell and are delighted to share it with you!
