My son goes to Hopi, and he has learned so much while attending this school...staff is absolutely wonderful!
A lot of people move to the Arcadia Neighborhood for this school. I have heard that it is as close to a private school education you can get from a public school. The Dad's club has been very successful in putting computers and internet access into the school. Problems I see is that it only goes to 5th grade and that the ethnic/cultural diversity is not there -- mostly upper income white children -- not real world, especially for Arizona.
This school is great academically. It rates very high. There is a high level of parent involvement. The one thing I really do not like is that there isn't a mix of culturally diverse children. There is a lot of money in this school, which is good and bad. There is a lot of funding from parents, although on the down side, I feel children aren't being given a realistic expectation on what this world is really like and the fact that the majority of people living in the United States are not extremely wealthy like the majority of the parents whose children attend Hopi. This world and country is extremely diverse and I want my child to understand that and love all people.
Excellent acadademics and parental involvement is phenomenol. A wonderful school! The only downside is the plethora of stay at home mom's that can be so cliquey and fake, keeping up with the Jones's should be the banner at this school, of course this has nothing to do with the education.
So far Hopi has been a great school. The only thing that has been lacking is the communication from the PTA.
Hopi has many Cliques, when it comes to parents and kids. It can be very difficult for a new student to come in and be socially accepted. The parents have been very stand offish and snobbish and the kids can be relentlessly cruel. Unless your child is rich, white and very smart and has an attitude worse than the kids going there already, I would not suggest this school.
Hopi is an excellent school academically. The standards are very high, and the school makes a huge effort to bring all students up to the standard. On the down side, it has minimal diversity (almost all white well-to-do families, many non-working mothers), and it is a very traditional and conservative curriculum. But it works! Socially, if you don't fit the mold it can be difficult.
