I believe this school is fair. My student is a minority and certainly not receiving all that students deserve. The teachers clearly display favoritism towards the Caucasian students. My student has been a target from day one. Teachers indicating there are missing assignments, etc only to discover otherwise. I am very sad to leave such a comment here but it is very true.

There is a new principal now and much hope that the school will return to its former prestige.

Changes in the super and principal have caused the school to go down hill dramatically. The new leaders seem to have lost sight of the right thing for the students academically and want to focus more on their own agenda. What a shame to have such a good school with good teachers turn into a3 ring circus.

Since the take over of the new principal, quality teachers and subs have left Hopewell. Quality teachers, including a top-notch 7th grade Science teacher, left because of the changes being made. Quality subs, who actually teach, rather than baby-sit, have refused to continue to work at Hopewell. The teachers are obviously unhappy with the new rules and changes. I understand change is hard. But would it hurt the principal to ask the teachers "We are thinking about doing this, but we need some feedback"? Those teachers have been there longer than the principal, and know the students, know the parents, and can offer worthwhile options and suggestions. And the teachers are encouraged to go these open forums where they can express their concerns with no repercussions. Yes, the teachers can express their concerns, but the principal makes their days miserable for doing so. Fulton County needs to train this principal more and make sure that communication between the principal and the students, the parents, and the teachers is re-established and then continues.

If moving to the area, be careful on reviews as many are from several years ago. I suggest visiting the school, along with other local ones to get comparisons. We recently moved into the area and have two kids in Hopewell. Many GA schools had principal changes recently due to encouraged retirements. We have noticed a distinct change in Hopewell, where academics is not the highest focus, but special programs like bullying are taking more and more time. Teacher openings take a long time to fill, leaving kids without a teacher (only a sub) for several months. Many of the teachers really care and we are thankful for their offer to help early or late in the day. The teachers are great, the administration and direction of the school right now is very concerning.

The latest review here is downright scary. The student claims to have "got into all AP classes". This person's grammar and spelling is an abomination. He/she should be in remedial English, not AP. If this is the state of education today, then our country is in serious trouble.

Just amazing! Each teacher will go out of their way just to help one student. My three years where amazing, my grades improved and got into all AP (advance placement) classes. Ya you got a couple of trouble makers but very few of them. Most of the kids are pretty good, theirs not a ton of cursing witch i know parents are allways worried about. The PE and music programs are some of the best in the state! for being in its orchestra, we have won state comp every year for the past 3 years. Make sure you open up a travle fun for their are a lot of tripps witch are a little munch but not too bad. We went to Flordia to play against flordia orchestra's and won. Great schools Great teachers Great programs

the teachers are great! Middle school can be difficult years and the Administration seems to do a good job balancing academics and activities.

My daughter is a 6th grader and has had a wonderful experience at HMS. The teachers are very involved in the students activities and really challenge them to succeed in all arenas. The parents and teachers are involved and work well to promote a positive environment. Keep up the good work! I would recommend HMS to anyone. Go Mustangs!

I've been a PTA involved parent at Hopewell for my daughter 6th thru 8th grade. I also had a son in 6th who struggled in LArts and Math. I could not have been more pleased with the staff's support!. They helped come up with solutions so much so that my son not only passed both classes (which was debatable), he made an 81 in math and 75 in LA. He attended Mrs. Pappas' math support class as an elective, and made a complete turn around. At HMS you have staff support, including the principal Mr. Thompson. If your child is not doing well in any area, parents need to step up and ask for help...its there for you. As a volunteer, I have to say that from the media center staff to the cafeteria staff, they are wonderful to work with! Life is good at HMS!

Having moved from Virginia, this was our first year at Hopewell. My daughter was in the 8th grade this past year, and adjusted very easily to her new environmnet. She has made some wonderful friends! All the kids seem to get along at this school. Teachers are supportive, and lots of after school activities/clubs for getting involved. Very strong parental involvement. Very happy with Hopewell!
