Hope High School Online is a great for me because I am 19 years of age and I can work on my high school diploma. I am thankful for the chance to get my education in an alternative way.


Posted August 5, 2014

Very easy to work with, flexible hours, and good courses! I was falling behind in another school due to a big move, and they helped with getting me back on track to graduate.

I love this school because it's awesome you can have a schedule for doctor appointments and work and not miss a thing.

Hope High School Online is an online school that works closely with the families to ensure success for the student. Everyone is really easy to talk to and puts the students needs ahead of anything else. It's great to see a school do so much for a kid that is struggling or even for those that are excelling on their own.

As someone who is chronically ill and has a lot of doctors appointments, joint issues, fatigue, etc, it can be very difficult to do school work. Hope high has been willing to work with me seeing as my joints will continually get worse. They have allowed me to work at my own pace and allow me to put my health as my top priority.


Posted August 2, 2014

Our experience was great! We had dealt w/another online school & it was horrible. The teachers, online classes & instruction were great as well w/Hope High Online. My daughter had zero complaints and all her questions were answered in a timely manner! Thanks so much!

So far we are extremely happy with Hope online. My daughter went to another online school previously where the program was difficult to manage. It was also overwhelming to work on 6 classes at a time. The 4 classes is ideal and the way the program is set up my daughter has been easily able to manage through (with the exception of tech difficulties with one class that the school is happily helping us through!). I also like hte fact there there are no constraints by school calendat year - students can work as fast as they want wchich allows for catch up if you are behind, or to work ahead. This was missing at out prior school. All this to say we are relatively new here and so far very happy - have referred other students already - thank you!

Hope High Online School has been wonderful for me and my always flexing schedule. I am able to complete my work on my own time, yet still am able to have help/feedback from real teachers. I love the non-complex schedules, they are simple to follow and is not overwhelming! I am very grateful for Hope High Online. Thank you!

This school is very flexible and focuses on making sure the students receive the education they deserve. He drive from teachers and staff for the students to graduate is impeccable. He classes are challenging but interesting and surprisingly very inter active. Over all, HHSO is a fantastic option for students who prefer an online experience.


Posted July 31, 2014

I have been working for Blueprint Education/Hope High School Online for the last 10 years and it has been exciting to see how we have improved over the years. There really is a caring staff here who want to help your student succeed. I also love the flexibility of our school. Students are able to fit school into their life. Courses are available 24/7/365 and students choose the days, times, and schedules they work. Each student will be paired up with a Student Service Specialist who will help push them to graduation and answer any questions they may have. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it in the end when you hold that diploma in your hand.

This online school helped my daughter to complete her classes in a time frame that worked for her. She was struggling in regular public school due to anxiety issues. This allowed her to catch up and during that time she was able to overcome a lot of her issues and is ready to go back to her regular high school. We are very thankful that this was an available option for her to get caught up with her classes and get back on track. All the teachers and staff at the school are very friendly and helpful and are there to support you in your goals. They really want the students to succeed.

I like this school because it is online and I can work as fast as I want to complete my courses. This is a great way to do school at my own pace. Hope High School Online is a great alternative for doing high school.


Posted July 31, 2014

I like my school because I can get my school work done quicker from my computer. Especially, my school is helpful for older age student who interested in finishing their high school education. Hope High School Online is way better than public school for me because I can finish one course at a time and focus on the subject I am taking.


Posted July 31, 2014

I believe that I am doing really well at Hope High School Online, it helps me a lot. It also helps me to keep moving through my classes even while working. I am so glad that I have this opportunity opened up to me. I also want to say thanks to the teachers who are helping me and those who are grading my classwork.


Posted July 31, 2014

This school has high academic standards and employes well trained, highly qualified teachers. The team is great. The online school has a culture of interaction with peers and adults with the goal of advancing everyone. They inspire students to make better choices and be champions of their own learning. This school serves a very diverse population including students who are pursuing acting or athletic careers while in school as well as students who are refugees beginning a new life here in Arizona.

Hope High School Online is a great alternative to traditional school. It allows you to work at your own pace, and receive help from the teachers available if needed.


Posted July 31, 2014

I began working at Hope High School Online in 2006 and can honestly say that the school is dedicated to striving for student success. The teachers and staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Students work on their computer at their own pace, wherever they are, whenever they want. HHSO has given an American Idol, a Silver medalist at the Summer Olympics in London, an up and coming country singer/artist, athletes, a 16 year old professional race car driver, professional golfers, actors, dancers and musicians, the opportunity to achieve their dream while continuing high school. With a mission to inspire students to make better choices and be champions of their own learning, HHSO is where I want to be.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
