The Hope Center is a 501c3 public charter school within the Martin County School District in Stuart Florida. We educate students in prekindergarten through sixth grade using a continuous progress monitoring model supported by evidence based practices to ensure our students are successful in their acquisition of skills needed to transition to a less restrictive setting. We have a low student to teacher ratio in addition to speech-language therapy and occupational therapy. All of our teachers are certified and all staff receive ongoing professional development to ensure the most comprehensive and up to date interventions are provided. We also support the needs of those affected by autism in our community through parent,peer and community education, social skills instruction, and vocational training opportunities.
