I'm very happy with Hope L School. Staff and Teachers are very professional and welcoming. It's amazing how they all know each student on campus by their names! They keep track level by level with their students and help them succeed. I'm very proud of my daughter's educational outcome so far and hoping to keep her till 8th grade if economy still helps us :) I do wish the school grows more in construction and keep its great academic level . I recommend it to everyone looking for a good school.
Very nice campus, parking / drop off is easy, kids love their school, teachers have been wonderful. Small school, nice playground, Outstanding programs and events. Parents remain very involved and it shows here!
Everything, the administration, the teachers, the parents, children, christian education. It's a terrific learning environment for our children as well as instilling family values. I feel honored to have my children attending Hope and honored to be a church member as well.
Both my sons graduated from this school and have done very well. Do not be swayed by a few disgruntled parents who may be unrealistic about their own children. The staff do their utmost to help the children develop. The teachers have masters or bachelors degrees, and the school is fully credentialled.
If you're looking for small class size, caring teachers, excellent academics, and a safe, nuturing, Christian environment, then this is the school for you. Parents who want their kids in to 'be fixed' or who are looking for a 'hoity-toity' environment will be disappointed. My son has been at this school from K-2nd grade and is doing very well. He has great friends, a class of 13, and gets AWESOME individual attention. All of the negative posts on this site (I've read through them all) are due to parents not getting involved with their child's education. If they think a few families run the school, they are sadly mistaken. All families are encourged to join in and help. All families are welcomed. It's not fair to sit back and not get involved, and then complain about what others are doing. Come to Hope, get involved, and watch your child shine!!
As a parent of two graduates of Hope, I am very pleased with the quality of education both my children received. Both did extremely well in high school and in college and I thank Hope for the foundation they gave to my children. Though the teachers may change, all come to Hope with a desire to teach both academics and about God and His plan for the children. I highly recommend this school for it's caring and compassionate staff and it's excellent track record of academics, test scores and successful graduates!
I had my 2 children here for a couple of years but quickly pulled them out. There is alot of favoritism especially if you are e member of the church. But once you leave, you are quickly 'dismissed' and forever ignored by the attending families. Disipline is not enforced, kids are allowed to bully others and are not taught to be responsible for the actions. Not good. This school has also seen its fare share of teachers and principles come and go, they should install revolving doors! A few parents drove them to the point of leaving. I think the most students a class has is 12....not good.
This school trully is a mess and is completely run by a few families. The principle and teachers are puppets that are 'controlled' by these few families. I'd really think twice before sending my child here. We pulled ours out after a few years of being bullied. Teachers don't have full credentials either. I even think the janitor teaches.
This school is a mess. A few parents are making decisions for the rest of us and I do not like it. The teachers/administration does not run the school the students do. There is no discipline at all. They let the students do whatever they want. I would not send my child to this school again. In fact she will be leaving as soon as I can find another school for her.
My eldest daughter has been at Hope since 4th grade, she is currently an 8th grader. I have a kindergartner and a preschooler there as well. My kids have been challenged, engaged, and nurtured at this school. My eldest has consistently scored in the top 4% nation wide on achievement tests and I know it is because of this school. The school is very small and does not have all the bells and whistles of fancier private schools, but don't let that fool you. It is academically a great school. By 8th grade, the kids are way ahead of the game academically and spiritually. The teachers have small classes, I would say less than 20, and this enables them to know each and every child and parent. The teachers are very approachable as is the principal. We are very happy here.
The teachers at the school are very caring people who appear to be in over their heads. Our son was lucky to be in a grade with fewer students, but some of the classes are huge, and there is only one class per grade. There is a lot of favoritism (preferential treatment) for students whose families are members of the church. Students are quickly 'labeled', and little is done to come to the aid of one who is struggling. All in all, not a bad school if your child is academically inclined. You just have to know where you stand.
I have a daughter who graduated from Hope in 2004, and 2 others still enrolled. I wasnt sure if it was worth the money for a private school education so I tried public school for one year during 1st grade, she had a wonderful teacher, but even she recommended that I send her back to Hope, I was concerned with the kids she was enrolled with. Hope is like a family, we attend church here as well. My daughter was admitted to St. Lucy's High school with honors, and her last report card was a 4.2 The best part is the fact that God is involved in their learning and growing process, if teaching your children to live a god pleasing christian life is important to you, I recommend that you investigate further in to Hope Lutheran.
My son began attending Hope Lutheran in 4th grade. Due to poor instruction he was behind in his grade level; his teacher brought him up to par with his peers. He now has a 3.0 in junior high. The teachers at Hope are very experienced and patient; they strive to teach the kids learning and studying patterns that can help them in their future grades - not just the academics. Study skills for an immature boy are so important; my son's past 3 teachers have really assisted him in reaching his potential so that he can use his intelligence to acquire the academic knowledge that they are also teaching him. The administrators and staff work very diligently to provide a safe and nurturing environment. I have never met such an encouraging group of kids! Switching to Hope Luterhan was the best thing that happened to my son.
Wonderful school. My son began last school year 03-04. He has a attention span problem. His teacher was very patient and caring with him and he improved 100 percent. The whole staff is wonderful and willing to work with you however possible. Very active with our children having social activities for them quite often. I recommend this school highly.
Our children have both attended this school from k throuth 8th grade. It is a wonderful school with teachers who will care about both the spiritual and academic growth of your child.
My son attended Hope from pre-k through 2nd. I thought it would provide him with a better education over public school --- I was sadly mistaken. My son was having difficulty with reading and I received little or no help from the teachers and expressing my concerns to the principal fell on deaf ears. Out of 12 kids in my son's class, 5 of these students (mine included) were enrolled in surrounding public schools for the 3rd grade. We all found that the students at these public schools were far more advanced then our children. Out of these 5 children that enrolled in public schools, 3 of them (1 being my son) had to repeat the 2nd Grade and another 1 was held back the following year. Not a very good success rate and it is directly related to the education these students received at Hope.
