Our children have attended the PK program at Hanover Academy for over two years. The leadership and teachers within the school have demonstrated their core values each day through instruction and support. Our children have truly benefited from an educational experience that is centered around encouraging them to continue learning. HA is truly family centered, believing in the benefits of family involvement and becoming an extension of our own family. We couldn't be more thankful for all that HA has instilled in our children as they begin their academic journey.

Our daughter has blossomed at Hanover Academy. The small class sizes allow for lots of personal attention by caring, wonderful teachers. She is challenged and inspired academically while feeling safe to explore her interests, and she absolutely loves it. Of all the many blessings Hanover Academy has given our daughter, learning to love learning is my favorite of all. Thank you to everyone involved in Hanover Academy!

My daughter started at Hanover Academy for kindergarten and is now in the 2nd grade there. Hanover Academy is a phenomenal school. I believe my daughter is to smart for her age and I have to thank Hanover Academy for her progress and all their hard work. I love that the school is small it`s more one on one time with the children and everyone knows everybody. All of the older children are always willing to assist the smaller children finding their way around, holding a door, helping them get in the car for pick up or anything that they may need.All the teachers are wonderful and are there if you ever need anything or have questions or concerns. They all have friendly smiles and wave every morning as you go by to drop your child off at their classroom.Mrs. Hilda that helps all the children with their lunches everyday is awesome I can not thank her enough for making sure my child has a hot meal if it needs to be heated if you forget lunch no worries she will make sure you have lunch. Mrs. Thomas the principal is fantastic she will be sure to greet you every chance she sees you with her big smile and if there`s ever anything you need help with she will be sure to work it out and work with you.I asked my daughter what is her favorite thing about Hanover Academy? "The Art room with Ms. Molly"This is hands down a wonderful school

My daughter has been a student with Hanover Academy for 3 years now. I am so happy we made the choice to send her to this school. She is learning and growing at an excellent pace. The small class sizes and nurturing environment are truly an asset. I would recommend Hanover Academy to any parent wanting to give their child a great education and all around experience.

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.
