The character of school is rapidly changing. School does not have as much concern for students.

I thank God for New Hope, the staff and teachers for their outpouring of love and compassion for the children. I have two granddaughters, ages 10 and 11. They've been with this school about 6 years. I would recommend this school to parents who want their children to learn in a Christian setting. It's like a big family away from home.

I love this school. The teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. For example, my daughter's teacher came to her baptismal service. It was over 60 miles from her house! This is love and dedication to the students. Praise God for such caring teacher and wonderful administrators.

I am the grandmother of twins, they are in their second year at New Hope. They are excited about learning as well as waking up in the mornings for school. The teachers, I take my hat off too, their style of teaching tops that of any that could ever compare. To the entire staff at New Hope Christian Academy, keep on keeping on. May God Keep And Bless You All and Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
