Many occasions have enabled me to meet and interact with the faculty and staff, who are responsible for the education and shaping of our most precious and cherished children. Articulate, accomplished, dedicated and energetic are only a few of the adjectives that best describe the teachers of New Hope School. This school has stood the test of time for 20 years. I am sure that all parents and guardians are most appreciative of New Hope School’s ability to continually inspire its students to excel in their endeavors to obtain a sound foundation for their further education.
In my 8 years at New Hope I always felt happy to come back after the summer because I wanted to accomplish more. Each year I wanted to do better than the year before. When I reflect on my time here I remember the pressure I felt getting my science fair projects done and having to talk about them in front of the whole school. I was always so relieved to be finished, but also I would feel very proud of what I had accomplished.
Now in high school, I have been in all of the highest possible levels of classes I can have. Even in these classes, I have felt as though I have just been reviewing content I have already learned in New Hope School. The school has given me a tool box (of sorts) and helped be build a sturdy foundation for the rest of my years of school, and I am very grateful for that. Additionally, there is little to no peer pressure to do bad things at New Hope School, which is amazing because children are very impressionable during their middle school years. This is because New Hope School has an excellent moral standard, and I believe that attending the school from a young age really creates almost a sixth sense of morality. There are no blurred lines when it comes to morality in New Hope School, which is good because it ingrains a sense of right and wrong into children. This is very important for impressionable middle school students to have in their lives.
I went to New Hope School all the way from first through eighth grade. Even though it is a small school, it prepared me well for high school. I am taking two honors courses and am getting straight A’s. At New Hope I also learned many good character-building lessons. By the time I got to high school I was very nice and respectful. New Hope School taught me many things, both academically and spiritually, and I’m very grateful to everyone there.
I was at New Hope from first through eighth grades. In my younger years I had trouble relating with my classmates, but with the support of the teachers I gained in my confidence in my later years and felt myself growing up. Now in high school I am doing very well. In my classes we are studying things I already covered at New Hope School, so I feel very confident in my studies.
I came to New Hope School in seventh grade. I was bullied a lot in the public school I came from so it was difficult for me to trust my classmates at the new school. I related mostly with the younger kids. Over time, however, I gained in my confidence and by the time I graduated eighth grade I felt I had matured a lot and was ready for high school.
I attended New Hope School from first through fourth grades after which my parents transferred me to public school. In seventh grade, I asked my parents if I could go back to New Hope because I did not like the atmosphere in the middle school where I was with the boy-girl pressures. I did not like the direction my friends were going in. The atmosphere at New Hope School is much more family-like. Boys and girls respect each other and feel more like brothers and sisters. At my graduation I cried because I felt so sad to leave. I am so grateful to New Hope School for teaching me good values as well as knowledge.
