School is great. Teachers really care and students rate excellent on standardized tests. Way above average. Parents involved with fund raisers and activities. After-school program well run. Best kept secret in Bpt.

Two of my children graduated from Hope School. Great environment. They learned a lot and prepared them well for high school. Teachers are really invested.
