As a student of Hopewell Public Schools, I have had a wonderful educational experience in my elementary, middle and high school years. I was a student in advance classes in elementary school, moved to a gifted program in 4th grade, and continued in the gifted program throughout my middle school years. I the took advanced and AP classes in high school and have achieved greater than a 4.0 average overall. The teachers and principals have been fantastic and I will look back on my educational experience at Hopewell with a smile!

Hopewell High School is a decent school, but there are some issues around the school. There are some good teachers there, but not all are very great. Safety is not always the best there are frequent fights in the hallways. Football and Basketball are the valued sports in this school, which granted those are great sports in the mind of most peers, but not everyone plays those sports. The food isn’t always the greatest but I wouldn’t say it is terrible. This school isn’t the worst out there, but I would say there are many areas where maybe they could improve.
HHS has provided the students the opportunity to excell to the best of their abilities through both academics and athletics. They have created partnerships with area governor schools for specialized education as well as with local colleges to provide students with opportunities to take college-credit courses. Our administrators, within the building and at the school board level, are constantly seeking ways to improve the classroom environment so that all students feel valued, respected and receive the best possible education that prepares us for our future.
