In August, Hope Academy opened its doors for the first time. According the the official website (www.hopeacademyeagles.org), it is a coeducational HISD Charter High School that targets young people grades 9 through 12 who are experiencing academic difficulty, behavioral challenges, and other issues that have not allowed them to have success in a traditional school setting.
On Thursday, November 12 at 10:30 am, I will have the honor of speaking before the entire student body along with Reginald Gordon and Durce Muhammad.
The administration at Hope Academy is Dr. D. Z. Cofield (Superintendent), Amber Wilson (Principal), Raymond Whitley, Jr. (Director), DaShuna Littles (Counselor), Rita Spivey (Registrar) and Michael B. Chambers (Business Manager).
