I liked the friendly atmosphere that Green Hope provided. Most underclassmen are usually afraid of upperclassmen at the beginning of high school, but the teachers and staff made mostly everyone, including myself, feel right at home. I never struggled with anything socially, and academics at Green Hope are beyond stellar. We are one of the top academic and athletic schools in North Carolina!

The past four years of my experience in Green Hope High School have been inspiring. What I really like about Green Hope High School is that it pushes me to do better in school and how diverse our school is. The environment over there is spectacular and you can excel academically. Plus, the sports program is one of the best in the state! If you enroll at Green Hope High School, you'll have a great time!
This is a great school for academically gifted students. The classes are significantly more challenging than the same classes at other schools. Because of this, the culture of the school is affected. Students are completely obsessed with their school work and make it the subject of every conversation. Most Green Hope students have very high grades and brag about them every chance they get. This could all be very intimidating to an average student, especially when it's time to apply to colleges. A lot of the students at this school do have lives outside of school, but it's very hard to tell. This school would definitely not give someone the average high school experience, but it's a great school to have on your college applications.
