I had 3 children going to this school. The Principal Leadership is all for the Teachers. The Teacher's Quality is, 'depends on which teacher you get'. Extracurricular Activity, well the motto is, 'You can pay to use Your Elementry Gym, but Hanceville School is not helping with the funding'. As far as 'Parent Involvement', the Teachers and Principal would rather parents stay on your side of the fence with your opinions.
