Hanover Park High School Reviews

I’ve been going to HP for 3 years now and I really like the connection that all the students and teachers have and the family that we have built with one another. I also love the school spirit we have. If makes you excited to go to football games and dress up and go all out because you know everyone is doing it too and they take it VERY seriously. I think the only thing I would like to see change is the air conditioning/ heating systems. In the summer, the classrooms are blazing unless they have one of the few air conditioners on campus. And in the winter months, the classrooms are freezing even if you are bundled up. Very few if any classrooms have heaters so I think it would be a great improvement to overall if we had access to heaters/AC units.

Throughout my four years I have met some amazing teachers and staff members. However, I often felt the general focus of Hanover Park was somewhat disappointing. Athletics are superb, but other groups can be overshadowed. AP classes only focus on the test, not the learning experience. Mostly, many classes give "busy work" rather than assigning truly beneficial work. Overall however, this school has a good environment, great opportunities, and amazing school spirit.
My experiences at Hanover Park were nothing short of amazing. From the day I walked through those doors as a freshman, I knew this was home. The school bond everyone has is truly amazing. We are one big family, we always support one another. Hanover Park has given me so many experiences that I probably wouldn't have received at a typical high school. Although the campus was unconventional, it showed us how to appreciate everything much more. At times there were hardships and many nights of aggravation, but I honestly couldn't imagine going to high school anywhere else.
