A Few Great Things About Hanover Public Schools

Hanover High School offers several dual enrollment courses where students can earn both college and high school credit and also offers “personalized pathways” among which students may choose innovative concentrations to follow as they prepare for both college and career pursuits. We also offer individual initiatives at all levels to promote, enhance, and grow experiences for students, which foster a love of learning and creativity.

The Office of Family and Community Engagement

The Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is a vibrant part of the Hanover Public Schools. We strive to provide exceptional programs, services, and resources to students, families, and community members. Our programs provide meaningful experiences that inspire, engage, and challenge students of all ages and abilities in a setting that promotes social, emotional, and personal well-being.
