There are many reasons why folks want a private school, even with good public schools.

Specialized instruction, the student has special needs, the parents want more control over the environment or some folks simply don't like public schools. In Wake County, as good as the schools are, some parents are scared of reassignment or a year around schedule.

If a parent has the money to spend, private schools are an option.

It was $200 for this school year. The 2007 Application and the principal Leigh Mullins agree that for next year it is $1000 for the second child and more for subsequent ones.

Angry Hopewells Mess

Hopewell is not a school anyone in with good morals could recommend. The school does not have licensed/qualified teachers. They do not have money to pay their teachers on time, rent and utilities. Parents are continuously asked for more money and "donations". After 6 months I pulled my child. Please do your research before you consider this school especially in the founder and the business plan.

Default Hopewell Worked Wonders for Us

I have to say that I completely disagree with the previous post about Hopewell Academy in Cary, NC. Our child has been there for over a year and we have nothing but positive things to say. 90% of the faculty have Masters Degrees or more. The administration and teachers are very committed to each child's success - something we found lacking in the Wake County school system. Our child totally fell through the cracks and no one seemed to care, except us. Hopewell turned that all around.

Plus, their athletic program, just 2 years old, is phenomenal. They offer soccer, basketball and tennis. The Director's background is with managing college programs and the kids are not only taught the physical aspects of the game but professional sportsmanship and the importance of being part of a team.

The tuition is much more reasonable than many of the other private schools in the area, and we feel our child is getting a superior education with Hopewell's dedication to small class size and individualized educational programs.


I cannot recommend this school more highly!

Hi!

I don't have any first hand experience with Hopewell, but this winter I had an opportunity to work a concession stand with a couple of parents from Hopewell. I had never heard of it before. Both were very pleased with the school. If I remember correctly both also had kids in other schools but felt that the child that was at Hopewell needed a smaller environment. They seemed very pleased with the close community the school offered and really seemed to like the teachers. They also talked about the fact that their kids got to try many different things (sports, arts, etc) because the school was so small that everyone got to do everything.
