School Reviews

  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - I believe that New Hope Academy saved my daughter''s life. Her traditional junior high school left her feeling isolated, bullied and suicidal. New Hope has been a breath of fresh air and helped our daughter not just get by, but excel and find her confidence again. Their art class & life skills class really have impressed us and we love seeing her come out of her shell again. I thank God every single day that New Hope Academy exists with the most amazing staff in order to help kids just like our daughter! God Bless New Hope Academy!! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - Outstanding school. Saved my grandson''s future. Community middle school wanted to isolate him and keep away from multiple bullies instead of supportive measures. Staff are outstanding and meet his needs and encourage his growth. He has flourished and bloomed. So grateful for New Hope Academy!!! - Posted by Parent
