HOPE International School Ethos
HOPE International School recognises the unique position of the children of Christian workers who, in obedience to Christ, serve away from their home country.
The school was established to meet the needs of these "third culture" children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and the wider Asian setting.
We recognise the unique needs of children in a “third culture” international setting, and place high value on cultivating positive social relationships, in a warm and friendly school atmosphere.
HOPE International School exists to support the mission of taking the gospel to the nations.
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
(Matt. 28: 18-20)
