For nearly 40 years Hope Secondary School has been educating, nurturing, and inspiring young teens to see the future some doubted would ever come.

Founded by the Mennonites in 1961 and now governed by the Arab Charitable Society of Beit Jala, Hope School began as preparatory school for orphaned and disadvantaged Palestinian boys. Since then, Hope School has broadened its ministry to include female and disabled students. Hope School does not discriminate on the basis of religion: both Christian and Muslim students are welcome.

They encourage all of their students to learn and grow in a supportive and stable environment. Hope School’s reputation as a caring and competent school continues as they provide for the needs of children on the fringes of society.
