Hanover High School is a democratic school in both philosophy and structure--a laboratory for teaching democratic values. Students are expected to use their voices and their votes to shape their immediate and global communities. On the school Council, students, teachers, administrators, and community members discuss and debate real policies and practices. Graduates have experienced a strong sense of political empowerment, coupled with important responsibility to care for the needs of others. The school achieves the real heart of the democratic process: respect and trust.
