Posted July 19, 2013

i went to this school a couple years ago. it startd off a great school but now that i look at it, its starting to lack some of its great skills.


Posted April 21, 2008

This school was very little after school programs. Most of the teachers are new from college and lack teaching skills. Fundraisers and parent involvment are nonexisent. The outside of the school is full of graffiti. I had 1 child finish 5th grade at Hopeville. My younger child will be attending a private school. Trust me it's worth the money.

The school is very unorganized. The office staff is very rude and unwilling to help. My son was lucky enough to have good teachers for kindergarden, 1st, & 2nd grade, but as for everything else, we were very unhappy. My son had issues on the school bus. They seem to have no control over the children. When I went into the school to look for his winter hat in his desk, I found 12 homeworks blank in his desk. Do you think that should have raised a red flag that my son was missing 12 homeworks? I am pulling my son out of Hopeville and putting him in private school this year. It's worth the extra money to get put him where he feels wanted.

I think that Hopeville is very unorganized. There is not much focus on the children who need more help than others. Some teachers are better than others, but over all they all have the same traits. I find many of the people in the office are rude and not willing to help. They really should look into having after school programs as well.

I like Hopeville school, but I would like to see the school let parents get more involed in what our kids are doing.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
