Hanover County Public Schools Reviews
I have received a great education from the school system. Most of my teachers work very hard to make sure that I have a great educational experience, and will willingly help me outside of class to help me succeed. The clubs I attend are also well organized. Hanover High School has a lot of school spirit, and being in SCA, I can first handedly see how much spirit the school truly has. The county is also doing a great job with awareness for drug and alcohol abuse. I am a member of 7th Up, and there are other programs like SODA, DARE, and Project Choice. The schools stay very clean thanks to the help of the students, and especially the custodial system. I always feel safe in the school system and I am so glad to be graduating from Hanover High School this June!
Hanover County Public Schools genuinely focus on the needs of all students. Instructional strategies and programs are created/maintained based on what is best for children presently and looking towards the future. As in any educational setting, Hanover has many very talented staff members who genuinely care about the whole child and therefore take the time to develop relationships with their students. Hanover is currently in the implementation phase of 1 to 1 devices for secondary students. Additionally, HR is working to diversify staff across all schools.
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.
