Hanover Area School District Reviews

10 reviews

At Hanover Area, I was one of the few students who felt inspired and compelled to go above and beyond academically, as well as with extracurriculars. I was my class valedictorian, and I can say without a doubt Hanover Area offered me little to no support throughout my schooling and college application experience. Teachers are beyond careless towards their students. The administration is belittling. I can honestly say every success I have obtained in my life after high school has been no thanks at all to Hanover Area.

Hanover Area School District is a pretty decent school. It's not the greatest school, but it's definitely not the worst. For the most part i like my school. it's home to me, and some of the teachers really care about you there & others not so much. Some teachers don't really seem to care about the student's education, but you know the ones who do care. They'll push you harder and really try to get you to learn something/ get you ready for college rather than the teachers who don't care. Overall, it's an average school. Hanover Area School District is really what you (the student) makes of it.
This school district may be the "nicest" around here, but needs improvement. Some lazy employees should be fired. There is a varied mixture of teachers. The "worse" teachers never make you memorize all the US states, although they weren't "bad" per se. Only the "better" teacher required it. I have gotten excellent teachers before, some funny, some mean, but at least they were knowledgeable. 1-2 of my teachers were just bad. The pool is broken for now (taxes are high-so is debt). The cafeteria service isn't healthy (e.g. nachos), although it is not the worst and lunch is free for now. The dress code is totally draconian. Things as simple as t-shirts are banned. The school seems to do an okay job of educating, if not above average (we have organic chemistry classes), you have the freedom of a few extracurriculars eventually (although there could be more e.g. a video game or debate club), there are plenty of clubs and community events, library is great, few field trips until high school.
