    "The principal is horrible, and it trickles down from there. I have heard many stories of students being pulled out to be homeschooled or placed in private school. As a substitute teacher, I have seen a lot, and this school has potential, but is very sad and fearful for staff and students."

    "I have been very dissappointed with this school. I agree with some of the other parents on here that there is an overall "coldness" here. I actually ended up pulling one of my children out and homeschooling her after she attended NHE. I also had never seen my children so stressed and worried about passing tests. My third grader could not sleep well the night of a test. I really feel like children are losing the ability to truly enjoy their childhood."

    "I have had children attend 3 different elementary schools in Henry County (because of all the rezoning the past several years) and New Hope has been the best by far. Great parental involvement, caring and supportive teachers and staff. My youngest will be starting 3rd grade in 2011 and I hope that all the rezoning is over and he will get to attend all 5 years at this school."

    "Good years have been completely hit & miss.Thankfully, we've been blessed with great 5th grade teachers.We've had 2 great years, 1 average, & 2 horrible.(Issue = teachers)I m familiar with the "coldness".It's widespread at NHE.It's not about "coddling".It's about encouragement & positivity to increase learning.I've been told from many including those within the school system that their bad attitudes are related to the principal.From my experiences with the principal, I can see how miserable the teachers could be.The vice principal is great!I know that some teachers have been forced to transfer to NHE & were not happy about it.Once again, there are some great teachers at NHE, but there also are some that I wish I could remove completely from any school.My advice to parents is to choose another school.Elementary school should be learning from good memories.More than likely, you will have at least one awful year.If you have no choice principal=waste of time & viceprincipal=resolution I give NHE only 2 stars.The bad times have been stressful on our family & I feel that our child was continuously treated poorly."Learning for All...Whatever It Takes" (NHE motto)...I don't think so."
