I am currently a student a Hcp and let's just say that I can not wait until I transfer. This school is overly strict. Students get penalized for every little infraction. This school is honestly not a happy place. If you would like for your child to be happy at school and enjoy their high school experience then do not send them here. They have a meter that measures the students volume in the lunch room and if students hit a certain maximum then they have to be quiet for the duration of the lunch period. On a little positive note, Hcp has some amazing teachers that's honestly care about student's futures. The teaching here is great, but that's about it. That have little parties in the gym to reward good grades and behavior as well. Personally, I am not happy here and dread getting up and going to school. I understand that education is key, but there also should be a balance. Students rarely get a chance to talk and be teenagers. If they would relax on the rules then I believe that this would be a fairly decent school, but I still plan on transferring before the year is over.

Recently toured the school and loved what I saq. The academics here is top notch. They offer the IB program which is a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Teachers seem excited to teach, kids seem very disciplined and the principal is leading the school in the right direction. Noble schools have a 100% college placement rate. Hansberry school is small in population and in size(one floor bldg). Newly built and facilities is state of the art. The school have strict policies to ensure discipline and rules are followed. This school is not for everyone, so if you have a child that cant follow the rules and do not want to leatn, please do not even apply. But if you have a child that want to succeed in life and not be a statistic,then apply. My daughter will be attending in thr fall and we cant wait!

I recently transfered from Hansberry College Prep. You will love this school if you're looking for a prison as an educational center. If you like diversity do not attend this school. If you like being happy when coming to school this is not the place! -Former Student

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

 
 

Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
