Pope is an excellent school. My children all had fantastic teachers who cared about them and helped to build self esteem, with the exception of one third grade teacher who makes every child feel like they behave poorly. I wish an advanced academic program were offered from kindergarten up. Pope offers and advanced math class starting in 3rd grade, and advanced Language Arts beginning in 4th grade, I felt my children would have benefited from advanced learning much earlier. There is a great deal of parental involvement at Pope, any parent can feel involved and needed. The PE, art and music classes are wonderful and well balanced with the academic program. In 5th grade a child in advanced classes can expect an average of 3 hours of homework, too much in my opinion for that age, yet the children don't know any different and they do it anyway.
