I graduated from John Handley in 2008. My high school career was full of personal issues; I went through a death of a close love one, teen pregnancy and raising a child, and my father passed in my senior year, then 7 months later my mother found out she had cancer and had to go through radiation and chemo tratment. The school was so supportive through it all. The staff cares about their students and will work with them until their goals are accomplished. I had issues about my classes and having enough credits to graduate and they worked it out all for me. The school is like a family. It's full of tradition and will instill pride and self confidence in you! There courses are hard but they make you earn your diploma and you can't have any shame ofr that. They only want the best for you.

Handley was a great school to finish out my high school career in! With the history and architecture, I was in an environment unlike any academic atmosphere I have experienced. I will always remember the memories of the heels in the wooden hallway and the magic of standing atop the front steps looking down onto the football/soccer field! How I miss the fun soccer days. Good luck!

Our school has alot of spirit which to us is Handley Pride, we are the best school because we have one thing that others don't have and that is encouragement, disipline, pride, honor, and we all love our school. When you attend here your not a student your a part of the Handley High School family. We are the best!!

Tough times, hard work: large class sizes this year, 26-30 per class for the lowest level-neediest kids. Upper level classes are smaller. I have Too much to whine about...sigh. Our administrators have a monumental task ahead of them, I have faith in them.

I completely disagree with the person below me. Yes we are going under construction and things CAN be hectic, but they are only remodeling the school for our benefit. They do enforce many rules such as clothing and those of bullying.

I am currently attending this school. We are under construction and the school is a mess. They don't inforce the important rules such as no bullying but they do get people in trouble when they don't show respect or when people get into fights (if they inforced bullying then there would be less fights.)
