Hanover Park Regional High School District Reviews
Rating 4.12 out of 5 34 reviews
I liked that I got to try different things and subjects through different electives ad clubs. The teachers are pretty friendly and are very helpful
The teaching staff is great, a very well run school district. Tremendous music program and a balanced diversity of students
This school could have had so much potential, but the administration is awful. If you aren't an athlete or a straight-A student, you might as well be nothing. They don't care about students--such as myself--who are struggling. They try to make things all peachy during Freshman year, but after that, they toss you under the bus and say they're doing everything they can to fix things, but in actuality they aren't even bothering to scratch themselves. If you come to them for help, they do whatever they can to avoid doing anything and blame things on either you or your family. Refusing to file paperwork, calling CPS on families for outrageous accusations... it's terrible. So many students are druggies and are struggling with other addictions, but the administration gave up on trying to do anything. And as most typical schools, they prioritize sports and disregard the art department. The teachers are fine, but the list of negativities goes on and on... they only care about looking good.
I had a good experience at Hanover Park, however I know some people who did not. As long as you are a motivated student you can excel and there are some good teachers that care about your success. There are also a lot of opportunities to get involved. The outdoor campus is interesting but definitely something you get used to and grow to enjoy.
Hanover Park was the best high school I have attended. This school not only has the best teachers, staff, and administration, but also a well defined curriculum. I have learned more in my four years of attending this school than I did in any other school district.
There are some goods and there are some bads, if you are committed to working hard you can still go to a great college from Hanover park but if your not you’ll fit right in.
The teachers are good and the school as a whole is welcoming. The class sizes are good. It is split into two high schools and I went to Whippany Park.
I enjoyed the faculty the most. They truly have the best interest of the students at heart. They are passionate about their jobs and want to make every student succeed. They are very generous with their free time and offer their time to students to provide extra help to them.
Committed, supportive and involved administrators, staff, parents and students - all working together.
My experience at Hanover Park has been average. It is like any other school with it's advantages as well as disadvantages. The weather is the worst part about it, rain, snow, and wind are HP students' worst enemies. Invest in a good pair of rain boots as well because the campus has flooded numerous times before and will continue to do so. However, the teachers at Hanover Park besides a select few are truly amazing. They want you to succeed and do well in their class.
Hanover Park Regional School district, prepares you for the "Life experience" that will be coming after you graduate High School. Hanover Park supplies you with the knowledge to go forth and to decide a path to your future carer, weather it will be college bound or other endeavor in life.
Throughout my four years, I am confident that I am ready for college. The administration as well as the guidance department has provided me with all of the resources I need in order to succeed. I have always felt safe in the school setting and think that the school does a good job in keeping an eye on how the school is functioning. The faculty and administration is very encouraging on you and your future.
My experience at HP has been great for the two years that I’ve been here. The school is very inclusive and strives hard to make the “family” image a real thing. Though there are various opportunities to do what you love in the clubs and activities offered, there is definitely a lack of recognition for certain departments. Much like the typical high school stereotype, HP favors it’s top athletic teams rather than the arts. It’s quite obvious that it’s no fault of the administration, but it’s unfortunate that our school has fallen into the stereotypical category where the majority of students have no real knowledge of the arts department.
I went to Hanover Park all four years of high school. I had an amazing time here both academically and socially. I found that there were many ways to challenge myself through harder courses and also was able to take great electives as well. The teachers and staff are friendly and supportive through my four years here.
I am a student at Whippany Park, this is our review. The teachers are mostly new, but the oldies are goodies. Our school has many tryhards who overload in AP s and activities for college apps. Many of the students try really hard in hard class and succeed. I do not think that the percentage of proficiency are accurate based on the how many kids are on honor roll, and take advanced classes.
I am very pleased with Hanover Park Regional High School district, and have found it to be satisfactory to my educational needs. The outdoor campus has made the school seem more open, even in the cold weather.
Hanover Park Regional High School District consists of two High School, Whippany Park and Hanover Park. The high school I currently attend, Whippany Park, is a great school in terms of academics and extra curricular activities. It has a lot to offer; however, there is a slight problem with the administration and teachers. Many of the teachers make the course more complicated then the course needs to be and the administration often does not listen to what the student body wants to say about teachers. They give us a lot of busy work to complete which takes our time from trying to be regular kids.
