Our School

Imagine Hope Community Charter School

Imagine Hope’s Lamond Campus opened in 2007 at 6200 Kansas Avenue NE, in the Lamond-Riggs neighborhood. The completely renovated school provides a bright, clean, and safe learning environment for students from PreK3 through 5th grade. Spacious classrooms, a large cafeteria, a gated outdoor playground, and a cozy reading center are some of the features students enjoy at Imagine Hope Lamond.

Our Philosophy

Content – Rich Curriculum

Through the adoption of the Core Knowledge sequence, we provide students with an integrated educational approach that places a heavy emphasis on the arts, music, and literature, in addition to the core subjects that are traditionally covered.

A Culture that Shapes Character

We consciously work to nurture the character of each student through a staff that teaches and models excellence and the establishment of character-forming rituals and traditions.

Meaningful Community

We teach students the importance of community by working alongside parents/guardians, our partners and decision makers, and community members in pursuit of our mission.


It is our mission to shape the hearts and minds of our students positively, by providing them with an academically rigorous, content rich curriculum, an environment in which character is modeled and promoted, and a community in which to build trusting relationships with others.


It is our vision to create a school environment that helps students gain confidence and hope for their futures, as they acquire a sense of joy and satisfaction that comes through diligent effort and attention to their daily work.


  • A professional staff and content-rich curriculum that challenges students at all levels to achieve.
  • Small communities within the school that enable students to form strong relationships with their peers and adults.
  • A welcoming and respectful environment for each family, and opportunities for families to be involved in many aspects of the school.
  • An emphasis on each student’s positive character development through role-modeling, curricular emphasis, and community service.
  • Financial accountability and stewardship of resources in a way that enables our school to be sustainable.
