National Blue Ribbon School

Hopewell Elementary was recognized as a Blue Ribbon School in 1992 by the United States Department of Education. The Blue Ribbon School Program identifies and gives national recognition to public and private schools that are unusually effective in meeting local, state, and national goals and in educating all of their students. Schools are evaluated on leadership, providing an environment that promotes teacher growth and recognition, using an up-to-date and rigorous core curriculum and instruction, maintaining a safe, orderly and drug free climate, encouraging strong parent and community support, and documenting success.
