I actually wish I could give this school a 0. If you are looking for a school for your child that is Special Needs this is not the school. They act like they do not have time for your child. When you need to talk to someone in the Special Education Department no one returns your call. You can call every ...  Read more

The school is safer, cleaner, and doing much better across the board. The freshman academy has been amazing, ...  Read more

WILDCAT NATION. Diamonds are forever. I am a student of New Hanover; & the teachers are amazing. The school has roaches like every other school -.- There are not many fights nor lock downs. Students complain for no reason; except when they wanna leave. I am a proud WILDCATTTTTT.

I graduated from New Hanover High in 2005 and am now in my senior year of college at NC State University in Raleigh. I can say without a doubt that NHHS is the main reason I have had such a successful college career. I originally started out as a freshman from Ashley High and immediately transferred ...  Read more

I would say this school is unique in that it gives the student a direction to go in after they graduate.

Hew Hanover is a wonderful school! My daughter attends this school with much confidence. She has had trouble throughout her previous years in the public school system due to a severe reading disability. New Hanover has really given her the opportunity to thrive! The lifeskills teachers really do show ...  Read more
