One day as I picked up my first grader from New Hope School, I was touched by the sight of a much older student guiding her in how to skillfully kick a soccer ball. This interaction is one of the strengths in which a smaller school population excels. In addition to the cross grade camaraderie and nurturing, I have felt that my daughter is a priority for every teacher she is with during the school day. At the New Hope School, I have found that care is taken to promote and encourage a child s inner strengths through their character education, while providing the scaffolding necessary to help the child meet academic milestones. New Hope School has been a gift to my daughter as she has been given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and most importantly spiritually.
The positive aspects of this school are the small class size and international diversity. In addition the behaviorial standards are high. You do not have to worry about bullying or bad language at this school. It is almost like you are sending your child to study with your extended family. The one negative is that due to the fact they are small and try to keep things affordable, the computer education aspect of the school is a bit limited. I think they are missing a computer teacher. If they could just get the computer education aspect of it together it would be very solid. The small size also hurts the school a bit in terms of being organized administratively. They are focusing on the kids and sometimes there is a little disorganization on the administrative side but this is the trade off in getting small class side and your child getting the academic attention necessary. It is a good school, but there is room for growth. They are going in the right direction though.
A great school with small classes, a challenging curriculum, excellent teachers, and a safe environment. My child attended from first grade until graduation. He is now an honors student in high school. I believe New Hope School prepared him very well for high school.
Very good experience in past seven years,I have two kids in school that are very happy attending classes with excelent teachers . school is family oriented with small classes and excelent program for kids.Will recomend to everybody that are looking for warm and caring shcool.
