For me, Hanford Joint Union Hanford High School has always been a home to me, ever since I stepped into my freshman year in 2017. if you truly dedicate yourself into the academics, the teachers truly care about you and will be there for you when you struggle because you put in the extra work. The athletic programs are truly remarkable considering we live in such a small town, but we have coaches who are truly dedicated to the school and who are alumni from the school, which makes the passion for the sport that much more great. In my opinion, Hanford High has truly gotten out of their way to make sure every student receives the best academic experience and the best high school experience. It's a home away from home.

I like Hanford Joint Union High School district because the teachers and staff are very accepting, helpful, approachable and overall amazing. The school environment is welcoming and it makes school enjoyable. Our academics are really nice, there is a large variety of classes to select from. In addition, there is also a huge selection of sports and extracurriculars. Our campus is very clean and open.
Hanford Joint Union High School District is a smaller district including four different high schools. I attend Hanford West High School and my experience is an average one. Like any school and the district there are advantages and disadvantages. I can't complain about my district because we are lucky enough to be provided with a lot of resources. We recently went through change of staff involving a few teachers and our principle. The teachers are always there for you if you ever need help. Our district even offers tutoring if needed. However, the classes available are not as great. A lot were cut the past couple years. Academics, sports, and the school environment can use improvement and will hopefully undergo much needed changes.
