The School of Hope serves students K-8 who have an autism diagnosis (mild to moderate). We are particularly proud of our diversity and take every opportunity to celebrate those characteristics that make us different. We welcome all who come through our door.
Our goal is to create a warm, open environment where students feel safe enough to ask questions, explore and seek answers. We challenge every student to surpass his or her own personal best and help them over the hills and through the valleys of these growing years.
“The School of Hope is being built in memory of Jarred Bryan Sparks and just what he means to all of us. If you ever met Jarred, you wouldn’t forget that contagious smile, or laugh that he always had. He wasn’t special to just his family, he was special to all who knew him.”

“Jarred’s favorite Bible verse was Matthew 19:26. ‘With God, all things are possible.’ I believed that then, and I believe that now!” ~ Amy Sparks
