Hope Highlands School, designed by Saccoccio & Associates, serves 500 students in grades K-6 and provides meeting space for local civic groups and events. The plan provided a 500-seat auditorium, full-sized gymnasium, large media center, and a separate wing for kindergarten classes. Pitched roof lines and a two-story brick exterior recall traditional school facades of the late nineteenth century.
