    I fell in love with the principal, office staff , PTSA and the teachers because they ALL GO BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY! My daughter is very happy and proud to be affiliated with New Hope. One day after school we stopped at Popeyes restaurant and a lady in the live turned to my daughter and asked her whether she liked her school and I felt very proud of her response which incorporates what I stated above. Theses are facts. I highly recommend New Hope Academy! Great Math Program and patience from staff😀 Their Christmas Program is always great too! Luscilda Mattis

    This small school nestled in a quiet neighborhood brings hope to children and parents in regards to education. Seasoned teachers and administrators put the children first and have created a safe and loving atmosphere for learning. With small class sizes and dedicated teachers, I've found this school to be just what my children needed as they grow in their formative years!
    Our daughter has attended New Hope Academy for 9 years. The class sizes are small. The teachers truly care about each student. They are able to provide detailed feedback and work one-on-one with students. The school's emphasis in the lower grades on reading, math, and character development is impressive. The size of the school does, however, come with drawbacks. There is not a robust music class, there is no longer a drama program, and the athletic options are limited, with the exception of girls basketball. That said, there is a robotics team in the elementary school, a strong dance program that runs from Pre-K through high school, and many electives offered in the upper schools. Overall, I would highly recommend the elementary school to any family in the region.
