Hopewell Middle School is located in Milton, Georgia, and is a member of the Fulton County School System.  Its doors opened in August of 2004 with a student population of approximately 870 students. Now in its eighth year of existence, this number has grown to over 1200.  Most sixth grade students enter Hopewell from one of four feeder schools: Cogburn Woods Elementary, Birmingham Falls Elementary, Manning Oaks Elementary, or Summit Hill Elementary.  Two-thirds of Hopewell’s eighth grade students have attended Milton High School, while one-third have attended Alpharetta High School*.  As a state-of-the-art middle school, Hopewell provides a myriad of enrichment programs including extra- and intramural sports, band, orchestra, chorus, clubs, and outreach opportunities.  With a strong academic focus, the school implements a rigorous curriculum while providing a bridge between elementary and high school.  Hopewell’s mission is teaching middle school students the skills and concepts necessary for academic and personal success.

 

Founded in 1871, the Fulton County School System is one of the oldest school districts in Georgia.  During the 2010-2011 academic year, more than 92,000 students attended classes in fifty-nine elementary schools, nineteen middle schools, sixteen high schools, and seven charter organizations, making Fulton the fourth largest school system in the state.  Families are attracted to the district because of its consistent and well-deserved reputation as a quality school system.  With a focus on student achievement and a commitment to continual improvement, Fulton County has earned a reputation as a premier school system. This long history of excellence is evidenced by the many state and national honors bestowed on its schools, staff, and students.

 

The City of Milton, a distinctive suburban community of the metro Atlanta area, has a population of approximately 30,000 and covers 23,000 acres.  Milton, which officially became a city in July of 2006, embraces small-town life and heritage while preserving and enhancing its rural character.
