Worst school ever. you need to complete all work or you dont get any credits at all, you need to go to their school for every test you need to take. It is very hard to talk to anyone from the school, they barely answer their phones. All work, literally all of it, needs to be completely done and met by your teachers standards, which can take over 5 days or them to grade it, before you can even apply for every test. There are so many other flaws and this school deserves 2 stars not 5

Great option for High School! We didn't know about schools on line and the lady at the phone help us to register my kid explaining all the different options for classes. Teachers were easy to reach. Highly recommended!

Great school with a great staff. We moved here mid-year during the last school year and the staff at Hope were very helpful to get my son's records together and get him enrolled in the classes he needed. They were always very responsive to questions, requests, and any issue hat may have arisen. Great job Hope Online.

I am very impressed with the school leadership. The principal has made impressive improvements to student engagement allowing for greater focus on student learning. I would recommend this school to other parents looking for a learning environment that is encouraging and pays individual attention to children.

Hope High School Online has been a great alternative for my son. He loves the independence to work at his own pace in the quiet environment of his home. His teachers and the administration have been very supportive of him, which means a lot to both of us. He has a much more positive attitude about himself and school now. He is earning A's and B's while still being challenged. As a teacher myself, I know that traditional educational methods and environments do not meet the needs of every student. Hope High School Online offers just that...hope. Thank you!

This school was the perfect fit for my daughter. She graduated with her diploma a year ahead of schedule. The requirements were more strenuous than the school she was in and she did great on the ACT! She is now accepted into a nursing program, thank you Hope High School!

This school was perfect for our child who needed an alternative to the public school near us. As an identified gifted student, she struggled in a traditional setting. HHS gave her an opportunity to finish school at her own pace. She received great support from the teachers and administrators. Also, we got to watch our child cross the stage and receive her diploma, which was very important to her and our whole family.

Excellent school!!! My son attends this school and loves being able to work from his laptop. He feels that he gets more one on one attention from his teacher and gets the help he needs to complete his assignments.

Hope High School Online has more then excellent teachers! Also wonderful principal! The school is great if you have a harder time with worksheets and tests or even trying to comprehend because there is always a teacher there to help you one on one in the Blueprint office or through webcam rather then trying to learn in a class of 30 students catching you off guard. You can take your time to be sure you get the best grade! Or if your simply just one of those students that is ahead of your class and wants to finish high school early Hope High School Online is a great choice for you, you can do the work and finish the class as soon as possible. The tutoring is great! The Blueprint Education office is nice and quiet so you can focus and get the best grades possible! I went from being in my second year of high school with all F's to starting Hope High School Online and now im getting all A's and B's! I love Hope High School Online and i would strongly recommend it to anyone having a hard time in public school!


Posted March 21, 2013

This was exactly what my son needed. Great teachers he could talk to when he needed them, challenging curriculum that he could complete at his own pace and people who actual cared enough to check on him and his progress.

Hope High School Online allows students to work one their own schedule and in their own environment. This works especially well for students who are pursuing an avocation as a vocation, have children, work ,may be married or physically not be able to attend a classroom. Also, Students who are behind in credits are able to often graduate 'on time' or even graduate early, because a student can work at a faster pace than in a traditional school. School curriculum is engaging and correlated to Arizona State standards. Caring and knowledgeable teachers are available to help every student succeed.

I love this school, i can concentrate without the distractions of noisy, rowdy children and i can work at my pace which has always been more accelerated than my fellow alumni. This is a good school and i think to succeed you just need to have some discipline.

I love HHSO, its an amazing online school program that benefits any schedule. Its self disciplinary and i honestly believe i am teaching my self which is a great thing i am given the resources needed and i push and guide myself to the rest. The teachers are always just an email away if I need help. Its a great school!

Hope High School Online provides students with a self-paced, flexible environment. Students who need to make up credits, have fallen far behind on graduation plans, have unique situations which inhibit them from attending traditional school or who want to graduate early can take full advantage of the self-paced nature of this program. Teachers are available for help and tutoring and students can attend class any time of the day, any day of the week from the convenience of their own home computer!

I attend this school and have been very unimpressed. They get payed alot of money by the state and offer very little services. I would switch schools if my situation allowed it (I have accute migraines). If you have ANY other choices for schools, take them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
