Mt. Hope High School Class of 2013 top10 students


Each year, Mt. Hope High School recognizes the top 10 students based on their academic achievement for the school year. This year, according to assistant vice principal, Jennifer Copeland, there was a change in policy that senior rank will now be calculated once all grades and exams are entered.

“In the past,” Ms. Copeland said via e-mail, “the top 10 was calculated at the end of the first semester.   We feel that the new policy ensures the greatest accuracy. The top ten is truly the top ten.”

The following students were announced as the top 10 academic achievers for the graduating class of 2013.

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
