There really aren't enough words to describe New Hope. I am an alumnus fro there and am still, to this day, known as someone from New Hope Academy. The academics are stellar, with classes literally coming to life as teachers not only lecture and hand out worksheets, but also have reenactment days, games to nail down concepts, and teachers that truly do care about your learning. The caliber of education is so high that the most hardworking students there can get into virtually any middle school after graduating. The music, physical education, language, and arts programs are indescribably good, and genuine learning takes place because everything is connected; for example, when we studied Egypt in second grade history, in art, we crafted masks and sarcophagi. More importantly, though, are the relationships, which are central to everything. Teachers genuinely care about students and so become lifelong friends. Diversity isn't only preached, but practiced, and the friends I've made there, I know I'll keep for an eternity. And at the center of it all, God is glorified. Every single day. There's not a single place like it on earth. God bless New Hope because, really, it's my home.
