Guidance Director John McCracking recently presented the updated School Profile to the school board, with data covering the class of 2009. The whole profile appears in the Guidance section of HHS's web site. Following are some numbers and highlights.

Hanover High School is a comprehensive public high school of approximately 740 students. The class of 2009 has 85% of its students now attending or scheduled to attend four-year colleges. Those 155 students applied to 289 different colleges and will attend 100 of those schools. Fourteen graduates deferred attending college for a year or took a gap year. In the National Merit Scholarship competition, the class had 15 semi-finalists, 12 finalists and 3 scholarship recipients.

The chart above compares the class's Scholastic Achievement Test scores on the math and writing tests to state and national scores.
