Leadership, Professional Development, and the Family Engagement and Welcome Center

We strive to assure a quality education for all Hanover students. We seek funding to help supplement our efforts. Such funding helps us focus on teacher professional development, reading instruction for readers at-risk of failure, working with students with limited English proficiency, and educating preschoolers at-risk for starting school behind their peers.

The educational experience for secondary students builds upon the strong elementary school foundation, as well as helps students acquire an understanding of and respect for themselves and others. Secondary students develop the skills to be responsible citizens and successful as they continue their education and career after high school.
