I have a second grader in this school, a niece in kinder, and a nephew in fourth grade. The teachers are fantastic and the administration responds quickly to concerns. The school can use some investment in their gym because contrary to what people may think (PE being held in the multipurpose room) the classes are actually held in the trailers. The PTA is extremely active and perhaps this is something they can invest their fund raising too. Otherwise a very student friendly environment with teachers who hold the students to high expectations but who manage to inject a great deal of fun in the learning. Traffic is terrible but this should ease up in the future - there is only one way in and out of that school and paired with the railroad and Trident Technical College nearby it gets pretty packed at peak times so be warned! :) Great school though.
I am a parent of a 2nd and 3rd grade student. We have been at hanahan for 3 years! What a wonderful school! The kindergarten did have too many kids, but the district brought in another teacher and fixed the problem in October of 2007. My kids have always been able to talk to any teacher whether it was their own or someone one else's. The kids that are dropped off early, must sit in the hallways and read a book. I see nothing wrong with that, that enables me to get to my job on time. There had never been any hollering in the halls! Hanahan is an excellent school, with excellent teachers and staff. They make you feel welcomed in the office!! Try it and you will fall in love with it!
