The reason I chose not to give 5 stars is because we can always make improvements. New Hope Middle School is a great school! My daughter made an easy transition from elementary school to middle school thanks to New Hope. The school provides a variety of connection classes and offers clubs for students to be a part of while at school. This being our first year at NHMS I was worried that the 6th graders would only exist as part of the school. No these 6th graders were encouraged to get involved as much as possible. This school has alot to offer academically and extra-curricular. When searching for the right middle school ask for a tour and don't be afraid to ask questions. Go KODIAKS!!!!
