"Thank you for working so nicely with us to accommodate his schedule. We are very proud of what he has accomplished at Hopewell this year. He is enjoying school (and learning) and doing well for the first time in quite a while. This is reflected in how he feels about himself and also how he thinks/feels about his teacher(s), the staff and the school. What a joy (and relief) to see these changes. THANK YOU!!"

" Dear Hopewell Academy,
We wanted to write and thank you for the two wonderful years at Hopewell Academy. When we were considering an offer for a corporate transfer to the US from Canada, our first concern was finding the right school for our son. From the very beginning of our discussions with Hopewell we felt at ease. Looking back, we know we made the right decision. Hopewell has been a wonderful school for him and we are sorry our time here is ending so soon.
In just two short years our son has grown into a confident learner, with a dramatically increased ability to express himself. The small class sizes made each subject more meaningful and allowed deeper understanding of core components. The faculty has a great way of facilitating learning, using innovative teaching and assessment techniques which help each child to reach their potential. [Our son] was encouraged to question, stretch and increase his academic abilities through oral, written and multi-media presentations. He enjoyed going to school every day and always left the house in the morning, and returned, with a smile on his face.
[He] enjoyed playing on all the varsity teams which was a new thing for him. He had not played a lot of school sports before. However, at Hopewell he was encouraged to play and once he got started, he never looked back. [All the coaches] foster a wonderful team environment that encourages the students to work hard and be the best they can be at sports, as leaders, and as individuals. We believe that the inclusion in varsity athletics has helped make him a more “well rounded” individual and will promote a more active lifestyle into his adult life.
And what can we say about the family at Hopewell? What other school can you walk into and be greeted with a smile and a hug? Enjoy meals together? And be actively encouraged to participate in the school’s success? It is a place where people come together, from all walks of life, to utilize their extraordinary talents and combined forces to make it the best school possible. They say that many people come in and out of your life but few leave footprints in your heart…thank you for the footprints in our hearts. We will never forget the kindness you extended and the tremendous progress [our son] made at your school.
With our very best regards,
J & D H.
