I came in to the school with English 1 under my belt already so as a freshmen I took english 2. When it came my sophmore year i was told i could not take english 3 and that that i needed to wait for the rest of my class to "cath up to me". So my sophmore year they put me in creative writing and no engish class. I graduated a year early and am thankful I only had to spend 3 year in this school.

Green Hope is a great school and I have loved going here. Of course, not everything is perfect, but it is a school that takes pride in academic, athletic, and club excellence. These are some of the reasons why I love attending Green Hope High school

Green Hope High School is very competitive and strives to prepare the students for college and beyond. However, sometimes test scores seem to get in the way of academics and making sure each student is succeeding. The focus can be too heavy on these test scores, as that is where the state and federal funding comes from. Overcrowding is also a major issue at the school, again, because of funding based on number of students. This puts undue pressure on teachers to be able to reach and engage each student.
