New Hope International High School


New Hope International High School is committed to supporting our international students to be ready to attend university in the USA after high school, if they wish to do so, and to be well prepared for the rigors of the college programs. For students to be competitive and to secure admission to the colleges of their choice, they must be ready to perform well in American high school classes so as to maintain a strong GPA (grade point average). Further they must demonstrate strong skills on the TOEFL and SAT and also master the demanding reading and writing skills needed for college success.


To ensure that every student has the English proficiency necessary to succeed in high school classes, each international student will be tested when they arrive at New Hope, before the school year begins. Students that exhibit strong writing, comprehension and communication skills in English will be placed directly into a regular high school schedule, full time. Students who demonstrate a need to strengthen their skills will have the English Immersion Program added to their schedule, at the level indicated by their test results.


The students in this program will complete 4-6 week English units each with final tests in reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing and speaking. When a unit is successfully completed and the tests passed, the student will move to the next level. If a student is not able to pass the final unit tests, he or she will repeat that particular unit once more for 4-6 weeks, and test again. If they are unable to successfully complete the unit on the second try, they will not be allowed to continue in the program.
