Hancock Central High School Reviews

I have had a good high school experience, with many opportunities to join clubs and be involved. I participated in NHS, InterAct club, student council, and sports. One thing I didn't like about Hancock were some of the teachers. There were a select few that didn't teach very well. However, they were fired after my first two years of high school. Other than that, I love how kind and happy our school is, and the amount of pride and school spirit that everyone shows.

My school is not a bad school, despite what other people may believe about it. There are minimum disciplinary issues, rarely any cases of bullying, or gang violence. There is the occasional fight, and there are always students who disrespect authority, but that is honestly a problem at almost every school you go to. Our athletic standing is average. We do not dominate sports but we are also not at the very bottom of rankings. The biggest problem with our school is our administration. The success of the school is dependent on both the students and the administration. We are not happy with the current administration, and it is affecting the attitude of the school. And when I say we, it includes both teachers and students. Our breakfasts and lunches are also a big issue, because the food that we are served is not exactly the best. Other than those two issues, I believe my school is at best described as average with room to improve.
My experience for the most part at Hancock central has been terrible. The one thing I like the most about my school is of course my peers. I would like to see Hancock central drastically change over the course of the years for the better. The school needs better food, faculty , staff , administration, education, and more school activities. We have one of the lowest percentage rates in math and reading , yet we graduate over 90% of students. How is this possible? I demand a change either I have to do it myself or with company.
