    My child just started this school in August/2013 and he has multiple disabilities. He hasn't made much progress but I do talk to his teacher and she does try to do everything she can to make it better.

    The school needs air conditioning better lunches and most of all a pool for the hot days

    I AM A PARENT OF A STUDENT WHO HAS BEEN ATTENDING NEW HOPE ACADEMY #345 FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. THIS SCHOOL IS A NICE DISTANCE FROM OUR HOME AND VERY SATISFIED WITH THE EFFORT OF TRANSPORTATION THAT WAS PROVIDED EACH SCHOOL DAY.

    As a former employee I didn't fully appreciate how wonderful the staff and students at New Hope Academy are until I started working at another school. The staff and students have an unparalleled level of respect for each other. The atmosphere felt like we were a family. It was an honor to be a part of this amazing school. Even when there wasn't a scheduled daily morning staff meeting for the second floor we all ended up in our usual meeting place anyway problem solving and brainstorming how to help students. I can only hope that my future children will have teachers that care as much as the staff does at New Hope Academy.
