Green Hope High School was a great school! All of the teachers were great role models and genuinely cared for their students. The curriculum was difficult, probably more difficult than any other school, and I think that that genuinely prepares all of us well for college.

I moved to North Carolina the summer before my junior year, and I was pretty rattled at the idea of not knowing anyone at a new school. I thought I would stand out because by junior year, most people already have their friends and don’t really like “newcomers”. I was completely wrong. The teachers and students at Green Hope are a tight-knit community, and when I became a falcon, I became a part of that community. The teachers at Green Hope treat the students like we are equals and are there for us in times of need. Yes, the school is very competitive, (with other schools and within the school) but it’s also a very warm and welcoming place for any student. You are pushed to be your best because everyone wants you to succeed in life. I have loved my two year experience at Green Hope, even if most of it has been virtual.
The school was very diverse and competitive. It prepares you for college and there are so many clubs you can join. The school has around 3,000 students and because of the large population, you don't get enough one on one experience with teachers and administration. The teachers don't seem keen on teaching their students, and often, we have to teach ourselves. The social aspect of this school if great, with a wonderful student body who enjoys getting to know everyone, but academically, the school isn't at the top. Sometimes, when it comes to clubs, you realize that getting leadership is very difficult. Only seniors get leadership positions, so you can't show others that you do have the potential to do so much more with your club. The sports teams are amazing and our student section during games is always huge due to out amount of school spirit. Overall, I believe that the school is great from a social standpoint, but academically, they could do much better.
