This year I am a freshmen at Green Hope High school! The people are so friendly and are always at your best interest. The teachers there are amazing and even though I've only been attending the school for around a month, it feels like home! The principal keeps the school together in a friendly environment. Everyday day is a new adventure and the possibilities for growth are tremendous! I wake up everyday excited to go to school and learn something new. I really feel like I have learnt a lot every since my first day. Really looking forward to my whole high school experience!
Review Green Hope High School
Green Hope High School is a very academically competitive school. With over 2,000 students a year, it can get crowded but there are many clubs for students to join to make the school seem smaller. All of the teachers are well qualified for their job and provide a supportive learning environment for their students. The surrounding Cary area provides great opportunities for students to help their community through Green Hope. Although the school is very competitive academically and athletically, it encourages students to thrive.
Green Hope High School offered the individualized attention and rigorous college prep that would be expected from a small, private school but in a 4A public school with thousands of students. Green Hope provides students with every possible opportunity to succeed through its outstanding teachers, driven administration, and devoted parents. Looking back on my experience at Green Hope I only had a weak grasp on understanding how lucky I was to go to school there at the time, and now going to college in a different state and meeting people with a variety of backgrounds am I able to appreciate it. However, while students at Green Hope are being escorted towards successes they are often times unintentionally being kept in a bubble, and while the school is racially, and culturally diverse there is little socioeconomic diversity. Overall, I would not trade my time at Green Hope for another school and it has helped mold me into the person I am today and pushed me towards success.
