Hanover High School is in the top 3% of 18,790 public high schools surveyed, according to the magazine US News and World Report. The magazine awarded HHS a silver medal for the college-readiness of its students. US News measured readiness by results on state math and reading tests; by the test performance of black, Hispanic and low-income students compared to similar students around the state; and finally by the school's rate of participation in national Advanced Placement exams, along with how well the students did on those AP exams.No schools in New Hampshire won the magazine's gold medals. Three other public schools won silver medals: Hollis-Brookline, Hopkinton and Profile. Six New Hampshire schools won bronze medals. In Vermont, Montpelier High School won a silver medal and five schools won bronze. HHS draws students from both New Hampshire and Vermont.

Details can be seen in the magazine's December 19, 2007 issue and at
