Amos Comenius Memorial School is situated in Hopedale, a small Inuit community on Labrador's Northeast coast. We are a K-12 school with a population of about 150 students, with a 26 member staff.

The school adopted its name from the Moravian Bishop John Amos Comenius. He is known today as the "Father of Modern Education." He pioneered modern educational methods, and was the first to use pictures in textbooks. He believed in what might be called a holistic concept of education.
