    My family moved to this neighborhood around 2 years ago we are a block away to be zoned in Springdale Park elementary school. I just can't believe the schools this close to the heart of Atlanta is so segregated. Hope Hill elementary school is 95% African Americans & spanish but the neighboring Springdale park elementary school is mostly white. My son is mixed race. We love his kindergarten teachers and they just pull of what I believed the best graduation of all schools. They did a red-carpet style academy award ceremony for the students. It was a lots of work for the teachers and a great way to motivate students. I am so happy the significant improvements of the school. But from the bottom of my heart Atlanta schools need to do better job to include all races & cultures in their student populations. We live in the 21st century now. Especially Hope Hill is right next to the Martin Luther King's Historic site if the situation doesn't change let it be the black school that has the best performance please. There are some parts of this area are poor but they deserve the same education & support. The APS need to give it a better support & staffs to turn it around !

    I have 2 sons that attend hill-hope elementary school.Honestly i don't think combining the two schools was a good idea.I never see the principal smile.My kids don't like being there because the feel like they are being treated differently because they are from hill elementary.As far as learning my sons teachers are good.

    My daughter goes to Hope and to be honest the school is not a great fit for us. Her reading has improved while going to Hope which is a plus. Although the homework has very little direction. If we didn't have internet at our home she would receive failing grades. In the beginning of the school year we never received text books to work from. Thank goodness for Wikipedia and Google. Also I find that there is a lack of discipline for the problem children that prey on the weaker students. Overall it's not a bad school and it's transitioning along with the neighborhood. It's a big improvement from the previous years since the new principal has come aboard. This will be our last year with this school.

    Hope Elementary School and its surrounding neighborhood has made numerous changes in the last few years resulting in significant school improvements. It has been named a Title 1 Distinguished School having made Adequate Yearly Progress consistently. Additionally the school has made the targets set forth by the Atlanta Public school system at large. Part of what makes this school special is its sense of community. Small class size allows the students to receive small group instruction enrichment or remediation if needed. The teachers work to meet the needs of every student who enters the classroom using differentiated research based best practices. Our new principal's vision is to prepare students to be professionals in the future. To that end professional dress behavior and academic rigor/achievement is expected. We have found that our students are willing and able to rise to that expectation. T

    I think hope elem. has a great school atmosphere. I have a sone that is special needs and they have always been there to help and to show me how to learn with my child and his learning. I do feel that the teachers need someone in the class that is better equipt to handle the childern and to encourage the kids to want to learn without you hearing something from other parents and staff memebers. I want to say that my sons teacher Mr. Townsend did great with the resources that he was given in the class room and outside. I think more acemdemics are needed as well as communication with the parents as well.
