Absolutely great school. The surrounding area has a number of really good schools, but Good Hope has exceeded all our expectations. Our child transferred mid-year from a local private school and has never been happier. The teachers are very friendly and the curriculum is well structured and organized. Administrators assigned a buddy to help make the transition, but also took the time to check-in on students themselves. Afterschool activities for every child's interest. Also, all assignments, grades, text books, and supplemental materials are available online and are up-to-date. Students use the same system in the public high schools so it's a seemless transition.

Good Hope is AWESOME!!! I just entered it for my 6 grade year, and so far it is awesome. I've been at Good Hope for two weeks. The principal is so nice! Most of the teachers are awesome! When you are in the parking lot of the school, the school looks really big. When you are in the school, it's not that big. It's very easy to get around. There are cameras everywhere, so if someone's bullying you, they'll get caught by the camera. The guidence counsler is awesome and funny. There are four gym coaches so that everybody gets a chance to participate. The hallways are a little narrow, but very tidy. The IMC (library) is huge. The librarian is really nice. The IMC has a lot of books and computers. The cafeteria line takes a while even though it's split. Over all, Good Hope is the best school ever!!!

I'm going into my 8th grade at Good Hope, and I'm here to say that this is one of the best middle schools in the state. The staff overall was great, and I'm sad to be leaving them after this coming year. Sure, the work was hard, but it's all worth it in the end. I can't think of anything negitive about the school. Your children will make many life long relationships at Good Hope. This school will take your children places. This is the perfect school to prepare your child for high school.

QWe have been pleased with how 'new family' friendly this school has been. Even though my 7th grader is only here for this year, they have taken a lot of time to make the whole family feel welcomed and involved. The electives are broad and the curriculum has been excellent. My introverted son has come out of his comfort zone and really gotten involved in everything the school has to offer with the help of the 7th grade counselor who truely takes an interest in each student. We are sorry to be leaving, but know that Good Hope has given Ryan a great stepping stone.

This is a really good school. There is a strong academic emphasis, rounded off with good art, music and sports programs. However, the band director leaves something to be desired. Discipline is important at Good Hope. There are a lot of extracurricular activities and school-sponsored events. My daughter was really prepared for high school after attending this one.
