Good Hope Elementary School4

Good Hope elementary is a good school.They are greatly lacking in new technolgy.I have a child that is Dyslexic and they are at a total loss about what to do with her.They really need some upgrades when it comes to many things such as reading programs and qualified teachers.There should be some changes or our kids will be lost!
Good Hope Primary (K-2) and Good Hope Elementary (3-5) are great community schools. The kids seem to be good natured children. The school has some great qualified teachers. The school lacks in new technology and in their reading programs. The extracurricular needs much improving, but with the financial problems in Alabama I understand. The number of students per teacher is 19-20. This is a problem for the younger children who need a little extra one on one. There are no teacher aides to help. I do love that some teachers love parent involvement. This allows me to see what my child is doing. First grade has much to learn, and so far the teachers are very well organized in their informing parents what their child will be doing for the next week. The Accelerated Reading program at Good Hope Primary is not at all like other schools in the state are doing. I do wish they would bring that up to par. Reading is essential in learning other subjects when the child gets older. Parents seem to be greatly involved with the primary school.
