Hanford is the school that provides you with many opportunities ranging from letting your voice be heard to even starting your own little club. The teacher’s there make the school a very welcoming environment that allows students to be themselves, I really enjoy being part of our falcon family! What I mostly love about Hanford is that we have our AVID program which I am proud to be a part of, AVID is a college rediness class that gives you the opportunity too mentally and physically prepare for college. They give us the opportunity to visit colleges around our area and help us find the college for us, I am thankful to be a part of our community we have in our school!

I absolutely love attending Hanford High School. There are so many different things you can be a part of, the school spirit is amazing, and you meet so many different people. I have been in the marching band since sophomore year when I moved here, and they are like my second family. Sporting events are always packed, and there is an enormous amount of school spirit! We have an amazing staff that is always willing to help students in need or that are struggling, and its visible every day.
I started as a transfer student my freshman year and felt an amazing sense of family right away. I was welcomed with open arms into the student body! Hanford is not only a very diverse school, but it is beyond accepting. After acclimating to high school I was eager to try out one of the over 40 clubs at Hanford. My junior year I enrolled in Leadership because I wanted to give back to the school that welcomed me so warmly! My senior year I decided to run for Executive Council. I got the position! Not only is it fun, but everyone works so hard to put on events simply because they love the student body and Admin! The teachers and admin at Hanford are phenomenal. I know every admin by name, which I think is unique for a high school. They all truly care to see their students succeed and will to anything to help us in any way we need. From staying late to tutor us, to supervising dances just because they know their students want to have fun! They are the reason Hanford feels like home.
