Hope Academy Northwest is the home of the Sharks. Since opening our doors in 2004, Northwest has offered a safe, secure, and positive environment to students and families. Our mission is to provide a high level of education by focusing on achievement,  technology, and social responsibility to create successful citizens. Our teachers love working at Northwest, and most have been with us for over five years. Our students benefit from a well-rounded education including arts and music, and each student receives a free breakfast and lunch every day. The school has been renamed as Northwest School of Arts.
