St. Lucie Public Schools is proud to be a Kids at Hope School District. We believe that all children are capable of success, No Exceptions! Our schools are committed to being a place where caring adults have high expectations for students, provide opportunities to succeed, celebrate success, and believe in children.

What is Kids at Hope? It is a belief that all children are capable of success, no exceptions. It is a commitment to all children, at every age, stage, and grade level. It is a culture where adults believe in children, connect with them, discover their talents, and help students develop dreams and goals for the future. This is what hope is all about!

Kids at Hope is based on three universal truths: 1- We believe that all children are capable of success, no exceptions. 2- We connect with all children in a meaningful, sustainable way through relationships called Aces. 3- We time travel by teaching children to mentally time travel to their future in four destinations (areas) of life: Home & Family, Hobbies & Recreation, Community & Service, Education & Career.

Kids at Hope is a community-wide movement that includes local government, law enforcement agencies, daycare centers, recreational facilities, and countless other organizations in St. Lucie County. St. Lucie Public Schools proudly partners with the Roundtable of St. Lucie County to provide a strong school-community partnership that keeps Kids at Hope going.
