Would you recommend attending Hanover Area Junior Senior High School if you had the choice? Why or why not?


Anonymous, Student, Hanover Area Junior Senior High School, Class of 2016

I would not recommend attending Hanover Area Junior Senior High School. It would be a definite no because for me personally, academics are what should matter in a school. In the eyes of Hanover Area, sports are more important, and they get all of the funding instead of academics, clubs, or the arts. In fact, programs such as sewing in home economics were cut in recent budget changes, while sports are still fully funded. Getting back to the main point, there are some great teachers in Hanover Area who go above and beyond the call of duty, but they are definitely the minority. Most teachers cannot control their classrooms, and do not care if any of their students actually learn anything or not. Overall, Hanover Area is a school obsessed with sports and standardized test scores, and I would not recommend it.
