Hopewell is an incredible school and our son is so happy there. We were in a local WCPSS school where his needs were not being met from an administration who was not accommodating and with a teacher who did not try to understand how our son learned best, only telling us what he couldn't do. At Hopewell, they care, listen to any concerns, and truly try to help you. You are not fighting for people to help your children, they want to help you, and try to understand how your child learns best. If modifications are needed, whether to enrich a child who needs more advanced classes, or assistance if a child is struggling, they do it, and are happy to do it.. The caring and nurturing is gone in most schools, and if a child learns differently, or needs something different, that child is made to feel that they don't "measure up." At Hopewell, they are getting an outstanding education, WITH the nurturing, and they genuinely care about your child. If you speak to the Dean, he stops and always listens to you, and always follows up and does what he promises. Hopewell is a family, a collaborative effort where everyone works together to help your child. That is the way it is supposed to be!
