  • I went to New Hope from the first grade all the way through the twelfth grade and I am proud to be an alumni. I'm also proud that my children go there! I have had experience with teachers from kindergarten through twelfth grade with my kids and can't say it has been perfect, but I will say I am happy and pleased that my kids attend New Hope!

  • The teachers don't help children when they ask for it. Instead they tell them to ask a neighbor. If you are a teacher you should help children understand things yourself instead of telling them to ask another person. It is a disgusting and vile school and should be shut down for good. It was aweful when I went there and it seems to be alot worse now. Also some kids are bullies and they don't stop them from bullying other kids.
