Personalized Learning

Teachers consistently collaborate to ensure that all students learn at high levels. They analyze student data, share ideas and utilize researched-based strategies to meet the needs of each student. Flexible grouping practices in reading and math show excellent, personalized results for all of our students.

Meaningful Use of Technology

Technology is integrated into each classroom through the use of iPads, laptops, Chromebooks, Smart Boards and two mobile labs that are available on demand. We use a variety of apps, websites and software, including Google Apps for Education, to improve communication, learning and collaboration.

Specialist Classes and Special Programs

Students in all grades participate in music, physical education and media/technology instruction. Many special programs also promote student learning. Hornetdale gives students in grades 1-2 practice in money management. Special musical productions are performed by students in grades 2 and 4 annually.

Strong Parent Involvement

We value parent support and involvement. Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) hosts many activities, from school carnivals to engineering nights, as well as funds important needs such as additional technology for the classroom, books for the media center, musical instruments and a resident artist who provides art instruction. More than 400 volunteers add to the success of the school every year. Many local community businesses also support our school, including the Hanover Athletic Association.
