Hanover County Public Schools Reviews

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.

Hanover High School is a beautiful, new facility with fairly updated technology and many resources for students to learn and be assisted. It has a variety of sports teams with enthusiastic involvement and has many clubs to take part in. All of that combined with the excellent teachers provides an above average learning environment for students that prepares them for their futures, whether that be applying to colleges or taking part in trade and vocational studies. The only thing seriously concerning at Hanover High School is its county superintendent, Sean Davis, who continuously censors the voice of students and teachers and seems to remain in a different day and age opposite of today's modern and socially progressive era.
Hanover County Public Schools offers students the opportunity to learn in schools that have the latest technology and great teachers. I've attended schools in Hanover County since Kindergarten. I frequently see my first grade teacher and she always asks how I'm doing. That's how teachers are in Hanover County!
