Hanover County Public Schools Reviews

I loved going to school in Hanover County. I started school here in the 4th grade and graduated from a Hanover County public high school. My high school had a great teaching staff and students were always promoting kindness and inclusiveness. I would like to see funding for the schools change as my alma mater is just now getting the renovations that they deserved years ago! I wish they would also put more funding into music and other performing arts in schools as it hasn't changed since I went to school.

I attend Hanover High School, and it is a great school! The principal is not a very kind woman, and she seems to feel the need to scare teachers and students into respecting her, which is not how you truly earn respect. However, the school is not ruined because of one bad apple. The building and sports facilities are gorgeous, and the teachers all seem very helpful.
As a kid I moved alot, going to different states and attending a new school. Sometimes I would stay for a year, other times just a few months before my parents moved us again. So it was hard for me always being the new student to make friends or even settle down roots. I'd usually seclude myself from the other students and eat lunch alone whether that be outside or at a table by myself. Hanover was different, my first day there I was sitting alone at lunch as I usually would at any new school and to my surprise two girls had walked up to me and asked me if I wished to sit with them. Never had I felt so instantly welcomed before and no one would understand how much that meant to me, constantly being the outsider in a new school. Hanover High School is the best school I've ever attended, the staff are kind and actually care about your well being. I am honored to be able to call myself a Hawk and be graduating at Hanover High School.
