Hoffnungsau Preparatory School (Inman, Kansas, USA)
Hoffnungsau Preparatory School was located in McPherson County, Kansas, near the Hoffnungsau Mennonite Church. It was organized in 1906 and continued to give instruction until 1929, when it was discontinued. The curriculum was composed of Bible courses and some of the courses commonly taught during the first year of high school. The school was established primarily to offer to the young people of that community instruction in Bible and some of the basic non-Bible courses before public high schools were established in that area. The school enjoyed adequate support from its friends. The average attendance was between 25 and 35 students. The following teachers served it during its existence: J. H. Epp 1907-1914, Abraham Albrecht 1914-1920, Edward E. Flickinger 1920-1922, A. J. Dyck 1922-1925, Henry Hege 1925-1926, and P. T. Neufeld 1926-1929.
