I had one son graduate from Hanks and one currently attending. I can honestly say that there still are a few good teachers that try to take the time to give the individual attention needed for students that need a little extra help. On the other hand the classrooms are overcrowded with not enough teachers to give that one on one attention. The english department has excellent teachers that care...very impressive. The availability of music, sports, and other extracurricular activities is great. The level of parent involvement has never been great. The school suffers in parent involvement. More parents need to get involved for the sake of their children and the school. Communication between principal, and teachers to the parent has always been poor ever since our boys have attended with the exception of a handful of excellent teachers.
