The core academic classes at Hanes provide rigorous but reasonable classroom instruction in all four academic areas based on the ability and capacity of students. Our goal is to empower all students to achieve success, both in school and in life.
Our school provides services for both highly academically gifted students (HAG) and academically gifted (AIG) students in core curriculum areas. Our regular education program is also rigorous. In addition, we offer self-contained and inclusion classes for students with disabilities.
As a magnet school for math, science, and pre-engineering, we are actively seeking students who have a strong work ethic and who want to participate in a challenging curriculum that will leave them well-prepared for high school and beyond. While math, science, and pre-engineering is our focus, students get a strong literacy background throughout the curriculum.
Students may consider German, Latin or Spanish for their foreign language area of study. We have a very competitive band program and a strong visual arts program. In addition, we offer Project Lead the Way"s Gateway to Technology elective.
