New Hope-Solebury High School Reviews
If common core is what you seek this school is for you. Administration is terrible, kids are bullied, taxes are super high and kids go through school treated without respect. What a sad story of a district. Please stay away. Very political environment and expect to pay high school taxes for an average education experience. Please stay away from this district.
Everyday I was at Solebury I called my parents begging to leave! I am at a different boarding school now and I have more support here. Solebury School's administration director, Scott Epstein will act awesome at any interview but as a student, I realized he is more of a actor than you think. He will make the school seem amazing when kids and their family's are touring. dont fall into his spell. He has no idea what it is like to be a student there. The only thing I liked at this school was the 5 friends I was able to see. Most kids are day students which means there is not many fun activities on weekends because the day students are home. The place is a total dump.
One day after school my roommate and I found a huge pile of ants in our room. The room was as big as my single room at my new school. maybe even smaller.
My roommate fell off her bed once and landed on mine. There was no space and it was hard to live there. I was sick a lot because the school is almost contaminated.
I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone.
I hope that they eventually end up understanding that kids are becoming depressed from that school.
When our family moved last year, we chose New Hope/Solebury because of the amazing education we knew our children would receive. The high test scores, alone, speak for this district, but test scores aren't the only factor for success. The student to teacher ratio is one of the best in the state, and, despite being a public school, it operates like a private school system. Teachers genuinely care about the students, and this shows both in and out of the classroom. There is clearly a sense of pride. Aside from its academic program, the sports and performing arts programs are well balanced. Outside of the school, there is a strong,
Close community which helps to contribute to the district's success as well. We can say only great things about this district and its students and teachers!
