Hopewell has a lot of AP classes and in general has been a good school for our child. Math teachers have all been excellent; the principal is really sharp and responds to community input. We had considered going private but am glad we didn't. If your child is an athlete, consider this: Because the school is socioeconomically diverse, every kid there hasn't been playing organized sports since they were toddlers, so there are some legit chances for kids to play on teams. There's definitely room for improvement, but it has gotten better in recent years and is a good choice.
This is a awesome high school. I've had both my kids graduate from this school. The classes are fairly challenging and Hopewell offers a lot of AP classes. Would definitely send my kids here over North Meck or Hough. Hopewell is known for a lot of school spirit which is cool for students. I would highly recommend this school!
This is an amazing school! I was so scared to send my child there with all the bad stories going around about the school. With the addition of Mr. Gisiano, an amazing principal; his adminsitrative staff, and teachers who truly care about the students success he is slowly turning the school into a great place to be.. HIs hard work and dedication to the school, staff, and parents is making a difference. The academies that Hopewell offer are by far the best in the district. Don't be afraid to send your child there or buy a house that feeds into this school. As with ALL high school, there will always be problems. How those problems are handled is what is making Hopewell a great school.
Hopewell High is a great school! With the addition of a new principal and strong, dedicated administrative staff, this school has made immense improvements in the past two years. I have two children currently at Hopewell, and we have experienced engaging, hard-working teachers who are passionate about teaching students! The adminstrative staff is quick to respond to requests and inquiries, and any issues have been resolved quickly! The sports and extracurricular activites are well supported, and the JROTC program is the best in the district (winning the Superindentant's Cup 7 years in a row!) Communication is a priority, and involvement is highly encouraged. They do a good job of proactively managing their points of challenge to ensure an overall good environment for their students each day. Every school is going to have challenges with kids who don't want to learn, and parents that don't support those efforts or get involved. However, Hopewell provides a GREAT learning environment for kids who CHOOSE to learn, and parents that DO provide support and involvement.
i love hopewell my daughter is going to be a junior and my son is going to be a freshman next year. Ive had a good experience with hopewell. The principal is very good and caring and the teachers are too.
The administration at Hopewell are unprepared for the challenges of running a school. They are more concerned with what the community thinks of them than what they actually learned. Desperate to keep staff they higher teachers who rather not teach. I am not saying that the majority of the staff are wonderful educators. It is just that a few of the them ruin the school.
