    My son attends this school and has done very well there. When we first moved to the city from the suburbs he attended one of the city schools and his grades fell dramatically. They did not provide an environment conducive to learning. At Hope Academy the teachers and classroom environments have been wonderful. I only wish they offered more of the higher grades. My son would love to continue attending.

    I love this school! They are very caring and personable with the children. They really do care!

    My daughter has attended Hope Academy since Kindergarten & is now in 6th grade. She has gotten an excellent education and is actually taking some 7th grade courses. The teachers and administration are always open to parents input and encourage parental involvement. I really can't think of anything negative to say about the school (except that my daughter thinks the school lunches are gross). My only reservation is that as of now there is no Hope Academy high school in the area and in 2 years my daughter will be thrown into the Akron public school system. However I have been informed there are some scholarships to private high schools available. I would highly recommend this school as an alternative to Akron Public Schools!
