Welcome To Hopewell Junior

Jeff RouffMiddle School is an opportunity for our young people to find their voice, passion, and niche.  Hopewell Junior is a great place to do that. 

Our students walk out of HJS after 8th grade ready to compete with any student in the country.  A balance of rigor, compassion, and a focus on the growth of the whole child, allows our students to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.  We pride ourselves in giving all students opportunities to find their own personal success in anything they would like to do.  And while society continues to change, HJS is constantly looking for the best opportunities for our students to meet those ever changing needs. 

Hopewell Junior, a place to learn, grow, and compete with the best.  Hopewell Junior, a place that Brings the Thunder!
