Pretty strong academic school. Incredible peer pressure (I know from first hand experience!) Watch your kids close and they'll do fine here.
HHS gives it's students outstanding opportunities...academically, it's a truly unique highschool. The courses are challenging and prepare the students for college amazingly well. The problem is that there is no effective support system in place to help students with all of the stress. Ninety percent of the students at HHS will probably tell you they hate it; The school is very academically strong, but the administration refuses to admit to (and therefore deal with) the social and emotional issues that the school has.
I attended this high school, left the area 20 years ago and have now returned with my youngest starting at Hanover High. The concept and philosophy of the school hasn't changed in the 30 years since I graduated. It is truly a tremendous school - academically, availability of extra-curricular activities, strong parental support, involved and caring faculty and staff, and highly successful in producing great, responsible, very well educated and well rounded young adults who are more than adequately prepared to handle the challenges of college or whatever path they choose to take after high school. Yes, it is truly unique, I didn't understand just how unique until I was an adult. No there is no scheduled lunch hour, the school expects and, more times than not gets, students to exercise good judgement and responsibity for themselves and their world around them. Truly outstanding school.
I attended Hanover High School from sept. 1995 to jan. 1999. I think it's a great school that gives it's students the oppertunity to excell in their individual interests. Students need self disapline in order to do well, but the staff is very supportive.
I am curently a student at Hanover High school and I am insulted by the coments made. Hanover High is a school that gives freedom to the kids and helps them grow and learn from there mistakes.
As a former student of Hanover High I can tell you that it was one of the best preparations for the real world I have ever had. Yes we have free time and no we don't have a scheduled lunch hour, but discipline comes in the form of rigorous classes. And if this school is the pits then why did 5 of my classmates end up attending Harvard. I myself attend one of the top 25 universities (as told by USNEWS) in the countries and I would not have acheived the GPA and excellent school standing I have had it not been for the excellent faculty and excellent course work which Hanover provides. Stop whining and start enjoying possibly one of the best public schools in the nation and certainly the best in NH.
Just awful school! No lunch hour, open campus, kids go out and smoke in their cars. No supervision. no discipline, no follow through, no PTA. The pits.
