Hanson School District Reviews

As a student at Hanson, I have definitely grown and developed in an abundance of ways. The teachers and staff are incredible and have been supporting me throughout my life. Although, the school's testing scores are not as high as what is desired. I would have liked to be taught at a higher level and received better scores on the ACT, Smarter Balance Test, etc. Overall, my experience at Hanson is what has brought me to become a teacher in the future.

This school isn't all that great, no diversity, everything is about sports, there are no clubs or exciting things going on except for sporting events.
I like Hanson because it is small, which allows more interaction with teachers. I have had very pleasant experiences. They are very welcoming and always encourage students to do their best.
