    My kids loved this school and I am very happy with it. In a state with less then stellar schools its nice to find one that is above the rest!

    I do not like this school!!!!!!!!!!! I think that they need better teachers!!! If a teacher does not know how to deal with a child with anxiety depression and adhd they do NOT need to be teaching!!! The principal is very rude and does not care about the feelings of a child as long as she can be seen or heard!!! I am very upset with the school!!!! They didn't even test him/her like they are suppose to they just went by the test scores from 2nd grade wow really how's that for an education????

    Not really impressed with this school. My special needs granddaughter is enrolled here. The only thing good that I can say about this school is that she loves her teachers (but then she loves everybody). We asked that she be held back last year (to repeat 2nd grade). The principal insisted that she go to 3rd grade. She can't read... she can't write. Last year she was 'too advanced' to hold back. Now they want to put her in a class where she will have no expectations.. It appears they've given up. I'm hoping her parents will pull her out and turn to home schooling.

    My granddaughter is in her third year at Hopewell and the staff are excellent. She is triving and learning is a very positive environment. She has earned respect from the staff and is beyond her age in maturity. They are very encouraging to her and are always eager to help if needed. Love this school. Yvonne Avant

    Hopewell is a wonderful school! My child is thriving here. I find the staff and leadership to be very innovative and supportive. This is the only school in the area to offer a Spanish Immersion program. The gift of a 2nd language is priceless! My child loves this school.

    The facilities are great. The teachers and administration are caring and involved! I am a parent and a volunteer through Communities in Schools and every member of the staff I have encountered has been wonderful! Also my child is in the Spanish Immersion Program. What a wonderful opportunity!! I will never move from this school's district!

    This is my childs 2nd year at Hopewell. If I had a choice she would go elsewhere. The principle has absolutly no concern for the children in the school. She is extremelly rude and not willing to help at all when you have a problem. I would not recomend moving into this school district if you can help it and if you already do I would get out of it ASAP.

    This is our first year at Hopewell. My child is in 3rd grade. I have been very impressed with the quality of education and parental support.

    My child has been at Hopewell since the doors opened and is FINALLY leaving Hopewell this year. Hopewell teachers and support staff (the majority anyways) do not care about their students especially if they need to take extra time with them.

    I have two children that have attended Hopewell from the 2nd through the fifth grade. I have found the experience to be a very positive one. Through out the time we spent in the school parents were always welcome and encouraged to be an active part of the daily routine. I know that the teachers put in lots of extra time and hard work. Teachers and staff appear to be considerate of children's needs and levels of learning. They do reading incentive progams and character education programs school wide. The school is always clean and inviting. A great place for kids to learn and grow!

    My daughter attended Hopewell from the day the doors opened for the first time until 2005. She had a learning disibility plus some health problems. My daughter's teachers were very helpful and terrific! However the administration was horrible. The guidance counselor and others accused my daughter of laziness playing 'hookie' and lying about her illness. After a year of suffering my family doctor finally diagnosed my daughter's illness and after surgery she was back to normal. I heard no apologies from any of the people that accused her of all those terrible things. My daughter will never forget the accusations thrown her way by the administration and neither will I forget them. It was bad enough that she was so sick but it was salt on the wound when her own guidance counselor accused her of 'faking it to get out of school.'

    I had a EC child with disabiliteis in this school. If your child has no special needs it might be ok. If your child has special needs avoid this school like the plague.

    Both my children have gone to Hopewell Elementary and I thoroughly have enjoyed the experience of working together with the staff and teachers. Hopewell is a school where the children come first. The teachers and staff have been so helpful and considerate. My youngest has a slight learning disability and the teachers have been so helpful in getting us through this. Hopewell has a wonderful staff and will do whatever it takes to help your children to achieve their full potiential. Hopewell also a great group of parents that are willing to volunteer their time to help where ever needed. The PTSA has no trouble getting help for schoool functions. With their help we have been able to purchase many necessary items that the school needs to function as a better than average school. With all of the support from teachers and parents we are a better than average school.
