People think this school is good. Little do they know the teachers are power trippers with little respect for the children and parents. If your child is not in Special Ed they will be fine as long as you make sure homework is done nighty to avoid the benching. Special Ed go somewhere else they are not going to help you nor do they want to. What shame of a school. Very sad. You've been warned.
If you have an average child with average needs, you will have a good experience. If you have a bright child, they might be placed in a class in which the teacher gives so much homework that you wonder if it is some sort of punishment, because it certainly isn't enrichment when it's still being worked on at 10:30 at night. The principal is led/intimidated by by the teachers and has no real power. If your child has a special need, forget about this district as a whole. They have no idea how to handle kids with needs beyond speech. And even then...
Hope View is a great school full of caring, smart, creative teachers. I have two children currently attending the school and they are both excelling. The staff works well as a team. Their cohesive nature is reflected in the overall positive attitude at the school. I love the amount of parent involvement at the school. It feels good to know that my fellow parents care as much as I do about helping the teachers give our children a great education. We're all in it together.
My school is a great school , Great teachers.Great students, and great parents. I am so proud to be part of this team.
They just put my kindergartner on the wrong bus. He ended up on the other side of town and was extremely upset. You would think/hope they would take extra care with the little ones when it comes to transportation. Extremely unprofessional and not what you would expect from a school like this.
The new principal at this school is phenominal. The last principal seemed to be cold. I had many run in with her because of my child and his lack of paying attention in class. Never m,ind he had 3 out of 3's. This new principal is caring and loving. She is always smiling and the kids adooore her. She has truly helped me get the resources my child has needed. This school exceeds my expectations now that there is a new captain at the healm. THank you Mrs. ??????.
This is my sons second year at Hope View Elementry. This school is great and alot of parent/community involement. Yes alot of work for kids but i think its good for them later on in life. Good neighborhood also!
I have been impressed with the teachers' dedication to the students. The teachers provide a great deal of fun and innovative projects for the students and they have provided challenging academic programs. There are also a great deal of committed parents who are very involved and help out in any way needed for the children, which is becoming more and more important as budget cuts are becoming larger every year.
I think Hope View is a wonderful place to be! Amazing teachers, who care about their students, parent involvement, and a very nice principal! We have been at Hope View for four years and have been happy every year! Keep it up!
It's a good school with mostly very good teachers. I wonder if other parents rating this school have had children an any other school. Honestly I wonder if greatschools.org can be considrered a fair source of school assessment since only parents who are English-literate, computer-literate and have the time to submit a review are calculated inot the score. Schools are not vacuum cleaners.
terrible school if you have accelerated learners or gifted kids. All I can say is worksheets, worksheets, worksheets and not a creative bone in any of the teachers we have had so far. I have had three kids at this school and wished we lived somewhere else. This school is a glaring example of teaching to the test, they do nothing more and nothing less.
I do not have any qualms with this school and their "test scores".If you do have a bright child, watch out because they may not be challenged enough.For a school with such high testing scores I was truly disappointed with the lack of individual differentiated learning. My son was in Kindergarten last year. He came into the classroom writing down dictated paragraphs. He was not motivated or encouraged to excel.The teacher kept saying that he would not sit still or listen to learn..I responded by saying, " look at his test and evaluation scores,100% or 3 out of 3.Do you really think it's the listening and his squirreliness that are the problem?".The teacher responded by saying that she expected more of him...Hmm more than 100%.How is that possible? She did not give him challenging work.But he was given referals that added up to a suspension. Really?
I have two daughters at Hope View and they are both doing fantastic academically and socially. The teachers we have had so far have been great. I love the parent participation that is present throughout the school and the PTO does a fantastic job.
This school has some good teachers and some really bad ones. If you are in the cliche then your child gets good grades whether or not they can achieve.
The kindergarten curriculum is not reflective of the kindergarten state standards, which are fairly rigorous. The curriculum involves a great deal of drawing, coloring, and arts and crafts. There is next to no work in the classroom involving reading, phonics, spelling, and engaged teaching. The kindergarten curriculum matches that of a glorified preschool where students rotate to different stations.
I have been very satisfied with this school and the resource program,but some not all teachers are not as caring as others. This was a great school when mr.Moss was the principle. Mrs.Smith is a nice asset to the school. They need to be more of a team.
Great teachers, great program and great kids. Safe and very parent friendly. Principal seems alright but the teachers make the school great.
I love this school and so do both of my children. I love the fact we one of the highest percentage of parent involvement. I'm there every week helping out and have to say everyone of my children's teachers have been great. The staff and teachers are really concerned about each child.
I am very happy with the school, the staff and the teachers at Hope View. Our daughter currently attends and our son will be going into preppie kindergarten next year. Everything we have heard from other parents has been true. It really is a great school and the parent participation also helps keep it this way.
Both of my grandchildren attend Hopeview. Although I rate the school high, I think there is room for improvement in two areas. The first is the amount of homework given, some of which is busy work. Many assignments that should be done in the classroom are sent home, and by the looks of those on display during Open House, there was a lot of 'parent participation' in these projects. The other area of improvement would be to have some sort of an afterschool program for thirty minutes where students could be on the playground involved in intermural sports or other activities...kickball between classrooms etc.
