The bullying at this school is completely unacceptable. My daughter was a victim of brutal bullies, girls and boys, and when she retaliated because nothing was done by the teachers or school, she got in trouble. No one cares at this school about bullying. I put my child in another school and this year she is happy, adjusted, and doing very well. The blame starts at the top with the Superintendent who was unaffected by my concerns.

After having many bad experiences with the elementary schools in this district we left. My daughter went to the Jr. High for one year and it was enough. The bulling here is outlandish! And the amount of staff involvement with this problem is unrecognizable. My daughter was bullied by another child for almost the whole year. After talking with the staff a couple times with no actions being taken. I told them I was going to show up with the police if it didn't stop. The child that was bulling my child had a obvious home problem with Dad being drunk constantly. I even saw him show up to a school function screaming at another parent. But none of the staff helped this child. It was sad to say the least! But bulling doesn't stop with the children, the principal once called my child a dummy in front of other staff. When I went in to confront him, he told me that he will no longer joke around with my child... I told him he shouldn't talk like that to any child. I left basically with the feeling that we agreed to disagree with what is proper way to talk to young kids. We moved after that year, and she tells me all the time that she is very happy we did.

My daughter is in her last year here. Thank goodness! Entirely too much bullying and mean girl cliques.

Unless you are a Teacher or employed within the school system, Hopewell Area School does NOT care about your child. The staff shows extreme favoritism towards particular students. My child is a High Distinguished Honor Roll Student and a member of Student Council, NJHS, and Class Club and is DISCRIMINATED against when it comes to field trips and particular functions, they always find a way to tell her she is not permitted to attend, however, teachers children and children whom are not involved in the clubs are permitted to attend??? I suppose this is because she is the only African American / Caucasian member! However they are proud to use her for fundraising and volunteering her time to help CLEAN! If you are white and considered high class, you may be okay! I give this school NO STARS!!

I have two children who are currently attending this school. Generally the academic work is challenging. As in most districts, there are excellent teachers and some not so good teachers. For the most part my children have had excellent teachers who not only have taught them but also mentored them. The school does maintain discipline - which apparently some students do not appreciate.

Our school is not that great. The only thing we realy do good is our sports teams. The varsity girls basketball team recently won state champs. The second year in a row.

Over active disciplineary practises. Conformity to every aspect of the way 'they' like to see things is a must. Creativity is not incouraged well, and when it is incouraged it can only be in specific clases. At least 50% of the teachers are hypocritical, most could care less about student mental health, so long as the student will meet their standards and isn't shooting other students.
