Hopewell High offers lots of choices for their students including me. Freshmen year was kind of rough for me since I didn't know what to do or go. And with me I get lost real fast. But then, I learned that the school is just a big rectangle and using the courtyards helps a lot. All the teachers I had except two were amazing. I definitely learned more and understood what they were teaching better than any other teacher I've had. Starting my senior year of high school, they made everyone have free lunch. And that helps my family a lot because my family had to give me $20 every two weeks for breakfast and lunch. When they did that the food upgrade too.
Hopewell High school is a great school. I won't let anybody change that for me. Whatever people say about Hopewell, isn't true. Because those people never went or experience the joy of being a Blue Devil.

Overall, a very average to sub-par school. Needs major improvement! Homecoming is very elaborate though, every year.
It was okay for the most part. Not all of the teachers were friendly, but there were a few I looked up to and were very helpful. There was always a lot of clubs and after school activities to join, but most students didn’t bother because they didn’t like the school. They thought that some of the rules were pointless.
