The majority of my son's current teachers really care about the success of the students. This was also my experience when my high schooler attended Hopewell 5-6 years ago. I initally heard negative things about this school but my experience has been mostly positive. Both my middle school child and high school child are and have continuously been "A" students.

My son is doing fantastic and stays challenged by the teachers. The principal Watson, is extremely involved and handles situations promptly. Would not move... : )

I have attended a couple of sports activities (football/basketball) this month and was sad to see that there were not many parents attending. Why is this? As a future parent of a child who will attend this school, this is concerning to me. Based on parental involvement, I would have to rate this school with only one star. The one star is for the parents that are involved.

I rate this school as a 5 star my son attended 6 and now 8th. Grade. My daughter is in 6th.grade this year. I love this school we are born and raised in Austin moved here 8 years ago. Teachers do their best with what little is given to them. Athletics football is great and the coaches are great my son has played two years. Bullying is not tolerated. I highly recommend Hopewell.

As a person of color (white) my daughter is a minority, 80% Hispanic and Black. The school does not feel safe and is dirty. Bad school that does not care. English is almost the second language.

I have 2 boys that have moved on to highschool and 2 boys still in Hopewell. I have been very pleased for the most part, easy to get in touch and easy to set up conferences with all the teachers at one time.

Both of my kids have attended Hopewell. All the bad reviews are about parent/school communications. I found that not to be the case. The administration and teachers have always sent me e-mails or phone calls. After my oldest daughter left there and went to SPHS the vice principal and her Hopewell teachers continued to inquire as to how she was doing. This school has been a great experience for my kids. Parent involvement has a lot to do with what you get out of your school.

We moved this past summer from San Antonio, Tx expecting that the schools in Round Rock would be a better learning environment for our son. The learning environment I found to be that same as the middle school in San Antonio...poor. The communication between the school office and parents is unsatisfactory. There are no notices sent out for PTA meetings. The communication between teachers and parents is acceptable. There are a couple of teachers that do not respond to emails but for the most part the teachers appreciate parent involvement.

I have nothing positive to say about this school. My son is in NJHS, and they are very disorganized. The children showed up for a meeting and the teacher left and never came back. My son spent almost an entire year in a school mandated class which was a joke and a waste of time and learned nothing. The counselors did nothing and I was not able to pull him out of it until the 6 weeks of school. The communication is AWFUL! I do not receive notices of upcoming important meetings until after they have happened or the day before or day of. I will be very happy when my son leaves this school. Though I am not sure Stoney Point will be much better.

I like the way Hopewell keeps the parents informed. When our son started middle school we thought the communication between school and home would cease. Instead I receive E-mails on school news, up coming test and reports due. Thank you for keeping us parents involved in our childrens education.
