Open Enrollment Process

Hancock Public School’s open enrolled students count for almost half of our total enrollment.  We believe that this says a lot about the quality of education that we provide to our students.  Due to the growth that we have experienced, HES/HHS has currently set an open enrollment deadline for grade levels 8-12 in the spring of the current school year.  Grades K-8 open enrollment will close the last Thursday of July at 1 PM.  Hancock Public School monitors class sizes throughout the school year to make informed decisions regarding Open Enrollment.  Our goal is to keep our class sizes at an optimal number for learning (taking into consideration the needs of the students).  In the event that administration feels this number has been met, it is possible that open enrollment could close early for a specific grade level(s).

At Hancock Elementary School, our outstanding teachers and support staff, small class sizes, excellent resources, and strong parent support ensure that all student’s academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs are met.  In addition to core academic instruction, all students have music, PE, art, computer, and band (starting in 5th grade).

At the high school level, staff maintains rigorous academic and behavioral expectations.  Our students have the opportunity to take both hands-on and college level courses.  We offer a wide variety of College in the Schools classes, along with agriculture, industrial technology, art, business, and technology classes.  In addition to the academic opportunities available to students, we also strongly encourage participation in multiple athletic and extracurricular activities.
