Hanover Highlands serves approximately 530 students kindergarten through sixth grade.  Hanover Highlands benefits from having a diverse population. Hanover Highlands is honored to be an International Spanish Academy. The English-Spanish Dual Language Program allows students to learn Spanish during social science and language arts classes. In addition, Hanover Highlands is also a District 54 site for the intellectual disabilities program.

Hanover Highlands is a building that focuses around lifelong learning; an embedded goal with how we operate.  Our teachers work closely in professional learning communities that allow the staff to focus on students’ needs, instructional improvements, and best practices.  We believe that our students can achieve high expectations and each student sets goals in both reading and math.  Throughout the year we are constantly gauging how our students are working towards achieving that goal through data driven conversations with students, parents and staff members.

Every staff member at Hanover Highlands is dedicated to the success of our students.  Our School Improvement Plan targets continual improvement of student achievement in reading and math while emphasizing high expectations in all instructional areas for all students.  In addition to a rigorous core academic program each student is provided daily opportunities for academic enrichment based on his/her specific needs.

In addition to high expectations and behavioral standards, Hanover Highlands also offers the following students clubs:

Rocketry Club, Battle of The Books, Cheer, Husky Buddies, Choir, Instrumental Music (5th & 6th grade), Math Olympiads, GEMS, Student Ambassadors, Environmental Club, CODING Club, as well as many more!

The Hanover Highlands PTA is an active organization that works collaboratively with our school staff.  The PTA seeks to provide activities for students during the day and for families in the evening.  Our PTA has provided the following activities: Trunk or Treat, PBIS Assemblies, School Store, Field Day, Book Fairs and Classroom Party Celebrations.
