New Hope, when it comes to community and kindness, can be considered a good school. Academics however, not that great. The majority of the stuff I have been taught this year is stuff that I was taught a few years back at a previous school, and I am taking AP classes. Some of the teachers don't even teach. They just hand out busy work and then talk to other staff members or watch a sports game on their computer. Some teachers are great at the beginning of the year, but seem to give up after Christmas. I expect this out of a student (even though it isn't right), but a teacher should stay motivated. The majority of the teachers at the school seems lazy. The teachers, I feel like, are teaching the bare minimum of the curriculum that is required, and the principal of the elementary school is a massive procrastinator. The secretaries and such are incredibly kind and actually do their job, however, so a few points to New Hope for that. Sports are often glorified. Yes, sports are a great way to teach about teamwork, but some people take it way too seriously. The Scholars' Bowl teams for both Middle and High School, the Marching and Concert Band, the High School Show Choir, etc., are usually cast in the shadows of the football or baseball teams. God forbid someone misses Little Johnny play football every Friday night, but no one cares to support the Concert Band twice a year, at least. Some teachers even talk about sports more than their actual subject. I've learned more about the many rules of basketball than I have about Ethos, Logos, and Pathos in my English class, this year. Finally, we desperately need our teachers to teach more about the real world. It isn't absolutely crucial for a teacher to spend an entire class period talking about what a college professor looks for in his/her essays. Albeit important information, learning how to survive without the protective wing of Mother and Father Dearest, or moving to a different state, or paying taxes, or what to say in a job interview, is much more critical for the future of our nation. New Hope isn't bad. It needs A LOT of work, but it isn't awful. However, if everyone going through school right now is the future of our world, this school needs to improve now. There are a lot of bright minds that cannot strive because of the strain of New Hope and its mediocre system.

This school has improved so much for the better in the past 10-15 years. So many former graduates who have gotten a good college education and made sucessful careers for themselves have moved back to the community and given back. There is time, money and parental involvement in the school again. An afterschool program for working parents, a children's clinic, enrichment programs that were not available in previous years. The community has a lot invested in the school and it shows. The staff and teachers are caring. This is so much more than just a small county school, it's an amazing place for kids to grow and learn.

My 2 children began attending NHES in August. My daughter went to a large city school before and our main reason for moving to New Hope was to get in to a smaller county school. The teachers in New Hope are much more responsive . My son was recently diagnosed with ADHD and his teacher was beyond helpful during the process (it required her to do alot of extra work) and she never complained, she responded to every email I have sent, and was very helpful in providing me with the information the doctor needed. Had I still been at the larger city school I would have never gotten that much cooperation. My daughter has ALWAYS been a student, and now in the 4th grade her grades are holding strong at all A's and she is in the gifted program (which is also wonderful). My ONLY "concern" is it is an "everyone knows everyone" kind of community and new people to the community are definately not as warmly welcomed as the people that have been there for generations. Over all great school and we have no plans to leave.

I love New Hope Elementary School because my family has a history of attending this school for the past 2 generations and now 1 current generation. This is just my imidiate family, there are also lots of cousins that have attended this particular school some are still attending. So there is a lot of heritage here. It's great to hear how well the elementary school is doing and how far the credentials have come since I was in school. Go New Hope!
