This school is a wonderful place of learning for my children. The teachers have always taken time with them and been genuinely concerned for their well-being. Parents are involved and encouraged to be involved with every aspect of their children's learning. It is a small school in a farming community, which only adds to its lure. I have found the school and the community itself to be a perfect place for anyone looking to get away from big schools and huge cities where your children get lost in the shuffle. At Mount Hope, they will never be "lost". There are sports and music for those who like that. Also, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are available for children interested. No, I guess we don't have every type of extracurricular activity that Hunstville or some of the other "big cities" have; but, we also don't have the drugs and crime they have either. I will take my chances with the outstanding values set aside by this school any day.

This is a very good school. Teacher's take the time to make sure the student's are learning. They have a good athelic program as well as a youth program. Parents are very involved with all aspects of this school. From the classroom to the ballfield. Everyone knows everyone.
