My daughter has been apart of the Visual Arts Magnet program at JHOP for the last 3 years. We are completely blessed to have such a wonderful opportunity to allow our daughter to heighten her love of the arts. From her teachers to the principle staff, all are determined to make JHOP a great environment.
I have 2 children that attend JHOP, and if you child is not in a magnet program for the arts forgot it, my son was beat up by older child, it was swept under the table as boys will be boys my daughter was gropped on several occasions this also was swept under the table again "boys will be boys" this school has an outstanding amount of children that are already fellons and young girls that are pregnant, I have raised to other kids in the Dade CO school district and never had a problem ,JHop is a breading ground for juvenile delinquents.
This school has been plagued with issues from as far back as the 80s when it was called 16th st middle, if we didn't have transportation issues my kids would of never went here. Thankfully my kids get good grades and have always had good conduct because that's how they have been raised, I'm sorry to say that the area this school is located in is the main reason this school has major problems with kids having discipline problems and lack of respect for staff and other kids. Fights are a daily occurance, physical and sexual assaults are common and mostly swept under the rug. Anyone can search news articles and read the many issues this school has had. Many kids already have felony convictions, some are even pregnant. The principal claims horse playing or rough housing is what it is and he has never returned my calls in the 5 years that my kids have attended so far. When you have a school in a high crime area where many if the kids are growing up without positive guidance it is bound to trickle into the school environment.
The magnet enrichment program at John Hopkins is fantastic, with creative teachers guiding extremely talented young people through the beginning and intermediate stages of their magnet focus. Magnet students are very caring and supportive of each other, which is so refreshing! Most JHop kids will progress onto Gibbs High School, so they are constantly learning more advanced technical and musical skills from their former classmates as well. We are honored to be a part of this vital outreach for the creative arts in this county, and support Mr. Robert Florio, our dedicated Vice President (and excellent drummer) as he grows the magnet program.
