From Our Students

My family has been with HOPE for over 10 years. Middle school at HOPE prepared me for high school by helping me adjust to a class schedule that involves transitions. I also learned how to best organize my time based on my workload.

Blong Lee, 9th grade, former HOPE student

Sometimes the teachers give me a lot of homework and sometimes it’s difficult. However, I know it will help me prepare for the workload that high school will have. The small class sizes help me receive more individualized attention.

Heh Blut Paw, 8th grade

HOPE is a good fit for me. If HOPE has a high school in the future I’d like to continue going here. The teachers at HOPE are nice and they can teach really well.
