Dear HCP-Northrop Families,
I am so excited to welcome you and your 5th grader to Hiawatha College Prep-Northrop! We will kick off our school year in August 2018 with a founding class of 90 students and their families.
HCP-Northrop seeks to educate our students differently for an ever-changing world. Our school is based on these core beliefs:
- Strong Community. Students and staff are given opportunities every day to foster deep, trusting relationships. Families are crucial partners in our program.
- Equity. Time is devoted each day to knowing ourselves and each other well and supporting each other to build a more equitable world.
- Agency and Action. Our school program gives students structured choice about:
What they learn
How they learn
How they show what they know
How to impact the school and their communities in ways they believe in
- Academic Excellence. Our school is based on the knowledge that deep relationships, strong investment in productive choices, and outstanding instruction, are all necessary for students to be academically prepared for college and life beyond.
If you want to learn more about our model, we will continue with our Family Foundation events beginning in February of 2018.
I cannot wait to start this journey with you and your student. Together, we are going to have an incredible school!
Ms. Sherene Judeh
