The Guidance Department has posted on its part of the HHS web site the new School Profile, which is of interest to parents and college admissions officers. Colleges receive a copy with every recommendation letter mailed by Guidance. The six-page document describes the school's Mission Statement, its philosophy and governance.
About 88% of HHS's 2008 graduates now attend four-year colleges, while another 5% either elected to defer college, or have plans for further study.
The profile gives data on faculty: Out of the 79 professional staff, 69% hold at least a master's degree, while another 18% hold either a master's + 60 credits or a doctorate.
It explains grading, and opportunities for different courses, such as Honors Classes, Career and Technology classes, Advanced Placement opportunities and courses at Dartmouth College. Its charts allow parents and students to compare Hanover's results on SAT 1 tests to national results. Similar comparisons appear for SAT-2 tests.
Lastly the profile lists every college which the class of 2008 is attending, and the names of the colleges which accepted members of the class divided by the highest grade-point averages, by the next-highest level of grade-point averages, and so on. And here is the rest of it.
