After teaching 7th-8th grade for 20 years and being transferred to an elementary position, Hanover Green, because of its knowledgeable, caring teachers and involved parents accpeted me and made Kindergarten and 8th grade my favorite grades. The teachers at Hanover Green realize that as a specialist in Music, I am more than a free period. They know that the ARTS not only enhance education, the ARTS facilitate learning in other subjects. The children will be better prepared to meet the future because of an education that does not view one of the great disciplines of human thought, as secondary. Music is education and is proven to improve cognition by higher test scores.
My child has just completed the 2007-2008 school year. I t was a very comforting to know that the faculty and principal took a personal interest in the children. Testing was done on a weekly bases with results sent home to see how the child was progressing. We had a active PTA that helped in the school and even had workshops to assist us in helping our children to do exceptional work. If there was a problem the teacher as well as the principal took an interest in order for the child to achieve success. There were field trips to enhance the learning of the chilld. there were musical programs....there wer artist in residency programs....the children took active part in. The students also are taught computer skills and use a program called compass learning which help them with their academics. The program is filled with challenges. I like the small class size of only 18 students. the students have alot of opportunities.
