Im a parent of a current child at hanson park and let me just start out by saying this is such a horrible school the faculty is rude the teachers there are not hands on but in fact would rather let a child fail then to do there jobs ive been having issues with this school the day I transferred him from a great school where he was passing and now basically failing cause no one does there job. As soon as the year is over my son will not be goin back to this school. I dont recommend this school to any hands on caring parent for there child

Hanson Park is an exceptional school. The teachers are very welcoming and understanding. Not only do they have great teaching skills, but also have a great way to communicate with students. They may be hard on the students at times, but after receiving ISAT scores, you'll be able to see that its worth it. Hanson Park has an atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone.

Hi I am a student at hanson park. I have been here all my life and really enjoy myself. The teachers may act a little tough but once that ISAT comes in you understand why. The food could use adjusting but we are also given the choice of a home meal. The school add in rewards for students good work sometimes they do parties sometimes they have a dance and it has all been such a great experience. The students are all pretty nice and i love it here ~ A Student

I came in from another school & here at Hanson both the principal and assistant principal are super friendly and help out with anything. They are hands on people not locked behind a door, like many other are. The staff members are super sweet and helpful! Yes, there are clicks here, but where in this world wont you find any? Mean or abusive classroom teachers , uhm, have yet to meet them. Tough teachers, absolutely, but each and every one, cares for their students!

My experience At Hanson Park was the worst ever! I hated it. Whenever I needed help, the adults (teachers and/or staff) would ignore me. Everything was confusing and everyone was disrespectful. I left the school afteronly 2 weeks. Worst school ever!

The principal in this school does not sellect staff that reflects the population of the school and as a result thier is a complete lack of communication between the parents and administration. Their is a lack of extracurricular activities and programs for students. Students lack role models in the staff so they can look to for guidance and support. Is this school not receiving extra money for these children. Where is all this money going to? Showing pictures of these children on a bulletin board smiling does not mean they are being given the treatment they should be getting! shame on this principal and her lack of leadership. Their is nothing welcoming in this school!
