School Reviews

My daughter went to Hanover Academy for 8 years. The school gave her a great foundation to succeed in life. It taught her to love learning and to believe in her own individual gifts. She tranistioned to public school very well and ended up with several scholarships for college. I credit Hanover Academy and its personal and family oriented atmosphere for helping her find her sense of self and to always love to learn.
