School Reviews

  • Recommended November 09, 2010 - Good Hope highschool gets a negative 0 review from me. The teachers dont't seem to be concerned with the students much at all. Mt daughter is a junior and has all A's and B's. I know that sounds great, but she never brings a book home or has homework. I feel that this is not preparing our children for higher education. There are limited options in the art and music department. Equipment is old and worn. The football field and stadium is a disgrace. There are loose, broken rocks everywhere. I believe this is a hazzard because someone could slip and be seriously injured. The facilities are a joke. There is one hallway that is the highschool. This also houses the offices of the principal, asst. principal, guidence councelor, and library; plus all of the classrooms. And parent involvement is minimal; I believe due to the politics in a small town. It's who you are and who you know. I would NOT reccommend Good Hope school to my dog! - Posted by Parent
