Hanover County Public Schools Reviews
From first grade to 12th, my child has had teachers who genuinely care about the progression of their education. In elementary school, their teachers took the time to challenge the kids who were on a higher levels of learning, as well as assisting kids who were struggling. The resource teachers did a fantastic job of providing extra activities for their students, as well as the whole family. Students had the opportunity to participate in Reading Olympics, Family Fitness Night, Chess club, and Running Club, just to name a few. The transition into Middle School was excellent, my child had tours prior to his first day and the county hosted a program over the summer to help ease anxiety and focus on all the upcoming changes. Finally, High School, where the expectations of preparing students for the next level has been nothing short of outstanding.
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.
Hanover county public schools has many different opportunities for high school students and parents to better understand college. There are many events that teach high schoolers ways to plan and apply for post high school education. One thing that Hanover county public schools could work on is scheduling. I have experienced, along with many of my classmates conflicts in my schedule resulting in me having to drop certain classes. However, Hanover county public schools is a great school system that provides students with an excellent pathway into their future.
