Posted August 7, 2005

Many of the teachers are very good (particularly female teachers). Unfortunately, a few of the male teachers appear to be hired as coaches who happen to have a teaching certificate. Extracurricular aciviteis are good: Sports teams, band, clubs and several academic teams. The Honor Society sponsor is excellent: She requires members to uphold standards of the organization - Definitely not just a popularity club! There are not very many opportunities for parents to participate at the school. Also, students do not seem to receive much recognition for accomplishments (Athletics reeive more than most). Knowing many of the other Middle School (Junior High in some Cullman County schools), Good Hope Middle ranks at the top. I especially appreciate 'Break for Prayer' and other religious organizations being allowed to meet on campus.

There are not many parental involvements for Good Hope Middle School. I have had two kids who have currently attended the middle school. The TLC program did not prepare my children for high school, like the regular classes would have. Thank You, Miss Ayers
