The New Hope‑Solebury School District‡ formed in 1942, is composed of New Hope Borough and Solebury Township in the eastern part of Bucks County, along the scenic Delaware River. The rural countryside in Solebury Township, with a population of about 7,700, is dotted with historic stone farm houses, small picturesque villages with clusters of vintage buildings and small developments of newer homes. The village of New Hope, which is a little more than one square mile in size with a population of about 2,252, is a pre‑Revolutionary town perched on the banks of the Delaware. It boasts a commercial downtown area with a variety of small shops, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and antique emporiums attractive to tourists.
There are four schools within the District: the Lower Elementary School for students in grades K‑2, an Upper Elementary School for students in grades 3‑5, a Middle School accommodates students in grades 6-8, and the High School includes grades 7‑12. The New Hope campus includes the High, Middle and Upper Elementary schools; the Lower Elementary is located in Solebury Township.
The New Hope‑Solebury School District views every student as unique, important and deserving of personalized instruction. This approach to education is possible because of the District's small size and the commitment of its Board of School Directors, administration, teachers and staff, parents and community to high-quality education.
The District offers a meaningful, purposeful and holistic approach to learning, which builds connections among subject areas and calls upon students to be active learners. Using the critical skills of computation, problem solving, reading, writing and discussion, students learn how to learn in a supportive setting where students and teachers come to know each other well.
Classes are small, with approximately 1,450 students enrolled in grades Kindergarten through 12 in 2017. Enrichment is important because many students are high achievers. However, the District’s academic philosophy applies to all students. Teachers work toward raising academic expectations; they focus on the students, not on labels; and they encourage all students to challenge themselves. At New Hope‑Solebury, a unique benefit is the individual and personal attention given to our students.
