What happens at our school?
Hopewell Middle School works collaboratively so that students and staff will exceed school expectations in academics, citizenship and community involvement. We provide a positive, safe and supportive learning environment while preparing our students for the 21st Century by ensuring that our curriculum contains rigor and relevance with a focus on building positive relationships.
We, the proudly diverse Hopewell Middle School Community, provide an inviting environment in which students feel safe, parents and community members feel welcome, and teachers feel supported by campus leadership. We are committed to recruiting and retaining innovative educators who are supportive and encouraging of all students and have a growth mindset regarding academics and our profession. Our faculty recognizes the value of each individual student and empowers students through student centered classrooms of collaboration, relevant learning, and challenging lessons. This is achieved through effective PLC (professional learning community) meetings in which teachers are collaborative, cohesive, and supportive of each other while constantly reflecting and improving upon their craft. We Capture Kids’ Hearts while we will live by our Go-Green Core values of: giving your best, respectful and responsible, expectations are high, eager to learn, and new start each day. Hopewell Hornets are family, forever, for always, no matter what.
Reaching the Hearts and Minds of Every Child.

Hopewell Middle School opened on the site of the current Hernandez Middle School in 1996. In 2002, Hopewell Middle School was converted to a Ninth Grade Center for Stony Point High School and the present Hopewell Middle School was built on Gulf Way in Round Rock.
