We are Learners, Leaders, Achievers, and Believers.

Hope-Page School District #85 is a state-accredited K-12 district in Barnes, Cass, Griggs, and Steele counties. Our district currently has approximately 165 kids enrolled PreK-12. Our current facilities are set up with serving grades PreK-6 in Page and with serving grades 7-12 located in Hope (approx. 13 miles apart). Classroom sizes range from 10-20 students, offering one classroom per grade level. We currently enjoy positive, strong working environment with approx. 45 full- and part-time staff members including administration, teachers, office personnel, paraprofessionals, bus drivers, custodians, coaches/advisors, and cooks.  


The heart of strong and progressive communities is its schools. The Hope and Page School Districts operated under a Cooperative Agreement for nearly two decades. In 2019, the two districts were reorganized into a single District to encourage continued growth and innovation by allowing the school district to maximize the use of resources. The stability brought by the reorganization plan has ensured a visible presence of the established tradition of providing a high-quality educational experience for every student. 


Students are offered a wide variety of opportunities. A few of those offerings include numerous extra-curricular activities including sports for ages 4th grade-high school, FCCLA, FFA, Archery, Speech, Music, 1:1 with technology, dual credit/online/ITV courses, a growing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) program, and becoming a Top 20 School. A Top 20 school is intentionally implementing Top 20 principles and practices in order to fulfill the overall mission: to create a safe and healthy culture for all members of the school community and develop their potential to think, learn and communicate more effectively. This results in a positive difference in the lives, relationships and experiences of all involved.
