Hopewell is a great school to get your education and go out to college after you graduate. The Hopewell staff are very helpful when it comes to choosing classes for the next school year and preparing you for opportunities after high school.
Overall my experience at Hopewell Highschool has been good. I wouldn't say excellent, yet I wouldn't say it's bad either. Most of the teachers I have had the pleasure of learning with have been amazing, however, I have many peers that would say otherwise to the teachers they have been placed with. The course load for honors students can be somewhat rigorous, while AP is within the same ballpark (unless choosing any AP history -- it will be very hard). Regarding the other staff, most of them will do their jobs, while a couple are just there for a check and don't care about the well-being of the students. Basically, from my experience, if you get the right teachers, form the right friendships, and stay out of trouble: you'll have a good highschool experience. Just don't follow in the path of those skipping class to vape in the bathrooms.
Hopewell highschool was a very good highschool. I enjoyed my time there. I decided to transfer there during my junior year of highschool. Senior year was fun with senior activities. All of my teachers were very nice and understanding.
The best part was the curriculum. The biomedical cluster classes and my math classes strongly prepared me for my nursing journey. The worst part would have to be some of the policies implemented by the school, such as having to sit in ISS if you're more than fifteen minutes late to class too many times. I can understand them implementing this rule because they want to catch students who are purposely skipping class, but I had many late mornings when my mom had to drop me off, and instead of being able to go to class, I had to sit in in-school suspension doing literally nothing. Wouldn't you rather a student be 15 minutes late to class instead of missing the entire class period? There has to be a better way of encouraging students not to skip class because some of the rules implemented affect good students who don't deserve the punishment being afflicted. I also think there was a little bit of racial profiling going on in regard to making late students have to sit in ISS.
Hopewell was a fun and enduring school. The student felts connected with one another and the teachers felt caring, not only for our education but also for our well-being. A few things I would change would be the allotted time for study hall. It's misplaced during the day, which inconveniences those with early release.
Great diversity and involvement in school activities. The school has teachers of all races. This allows you to stay connected and get help with your academics.
I think my school is extremely flawed, but of course it absolutely has pluses. I belive three are our JROTC, Theater, and Band programs, they are incredibly well received regionally. However several flaws permeate throughout Hopewell. It's incredibly diverse both racially and class-wise, however violence and disobedience is prevalent. Many teachers are regularly leaving year by year due to the inability of admin to counteract the actions of unsocialized students. Many of the "no child left behind" ideas are shown and their cons with them, however it's also the fact that those in the cambridge programs are given greater rewards and precedent, me included. I think there needs to be a rapid shake up in hopewells administration so they are more willing to counteract flawed behavior.
My experience with Hopewell Highschool has been very pleasant. Although through out my 4 years here there have been some rough patches, administartion has helped us overcome all of the challenges presented. I would highly reccomend this school, although its not perfect, no school is. I would say most people would positivley review this school, they try their best to be as fair as possible.
I am currently a senior and this school is not what I expected, especially moving from California. There are some good teachers, but mostly the management is terrible. There is titan time and the schedule changes so often for that, but no one informs that. The safety is okay because there were so many incidents which even reached the news. For seniors there is barely even any help for college stuff. Information is often miscommunicated and overall very disorganized. I hope others had a better experience, but I certainly did not.
Hopewell is an amazing school. It offers a range of classes that are challenging and unique. Hopewell also offers the Cambridge diploma program, which is a great opportunity for students who are planning on attending a 4 year university. Hopewell has a range of exciting and important clubs, as well as competitive athletic teams. The staff and administration are extremely encouraging, and want to see their students thrive.
I appreciate the opportunities I have been given at this school. From the Cambridge program to the JROTC curriculum, I have learned a lot both academically and personally. These programs have taught me many skills that will help me in my college career. The academic opportunities were truly helpful, but the school sometimes feels unsafe and can limit people's abilities to learn effectively. Despite this issue, I still really appreciate my time at this school.
Overall, the teachers (or at least the ones I’ve gotten to know) are very caring and involved in their students’ lives. They do their best to get to know the students on a personal level and will go out of their way to help you do your absolute best both academically and in your outside life. The students, however, are the issue. There are many that make it difficult for the school to remain a safe and calm place to learn so it’s become something other students have to simply tolerate.
I've transferred from a small town in Ohio to Hopewell High School in North Carolina for my senior year. The past four months at this school has changed my perspective of people and what to expect. The counselors are extremely helpful with their service and want to set you on the right path. If you are a social person, you'll thrive here. The students are friendly and worth talking to. The teachers are great at explaining what needs to be done and provide you with the steps you can take towards your future.
Overall Hopewell Is was a great school! We had loving teachers who made sure we knew and understood the information. Hopewell is determined for each and everyone of their students to graduate on time and they do a very good job in helping to do so. My favorite part of the school is the dance room and was overall one of my favorite classes.
The programs here are pretty alright; they offer AP and AICE classes, and you can sign up to take classes at the local community college so you can get your associates degree when you graduate high school. Theirs definitely a problem with the administration and teachers. If you complain about a teacher, it'll get swept under the rug unless they actually commit a felony. There are always good teachers that try their best, but the bad ones always have to ruin your day. The administration is unorganized and incompetent. If they say they'll do something, 60% of the time they won't, and if they do try to fix whatever is going on, it doesn't work. There are definitely better schools out there, but its alright, they offer a good education so I can't complain too much.
Hopewell is a great school that offers a diverse range of classes. They also offer a myriad of competitive sports.
I went to Hopewell for my junior and senior year and it was alright. I was able to take a few Cambridge and AP classes and the teachers were mostly nice and were good at teaching their subject. The food is the same as any other CMS school and the building is old. Elective classes that aren't honors are typically worse and less controlled.
