The school had some growing pains after Katrina but in the last three years under an excellent principal and staff Hannan has double in sized, built new buildings and sports fields and has established itself as an extremely strong academic school with many AP courses and electives.

The previous reviewer obviously attended some other school than the Archbishop Hannan I went to for the past five years. After attending four different high schools this past school year because of Hurricane Katrina, I understand the incredible value of my Hannan education. Hannan is one of the greatest schools academically in the New Orleans area, offering students courses taught by an excellent faculty. I was able to excel this past year in an upper-level college course because of the preparation Hanann was able to give me. I would never trade my experiences at this school for anything. Archbishop Hannan turned me into the person I am today, and the Northshore will undoubtedly benefit from having Hannan reopen in the upcoming school year.

I feel as though i wasted 3 years of my life there because the school is very weak academically. I strongly recommend parents not to send your child to this school. It's a complete waste of money and a complete waste of time. If you were to sit in your child's classroom you would think you were at a social. Lastly, this school is over protective of the students and doesnt allow them any freedom. Your child will not do well in college if they attend this school.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
