Very boring city. You literally what you make it. Most of everything is in Colonial Heights. There’s barely any supermarkets or shopping places in the town. The school system is really good. The high school has brought such positivity to the city!

Hopewell is a small city/community with good schools. Hopewell has one alternative school,one early learning center, three elementary schools, one middle, and one highschool. The schools receive a lot of support from the city government as well as community organizations. Of course everywhere you live has negatives, such a crime, a lot of single parent homes, teen pregnancy, and crime. My focus is more on the schools because of the quality education I received. In high school, they really prepared for me college with the dual enrollment and advanced placement courses and the assistance from school and community representatives support of higher education.
Hopewell is a very small town with some fun things to do. The Hopewell Downtown Partnership has created a few nice stores and restuarants that could attract more people. Other than that, there are some pretty dangerous parts of Hopewell.
