Principal's Message

The mission of the Hanal school is to provide rigorous, interdisciplinary, student-centered, exploratory learning experiences.  We believe that this approach provides our students with the requisite skills for success in our ever-changing world.  Reading and writing across the curricula, debate and accountable talk discussions are the bedrock of this approach.
Each student is expected to read one hundred literary works prior to graduation.  Research studies indicate that an academic institution’s emphasis on literacy-based/core knowledge lessons is a successful modality in preparing students from all walks of life, with the tool set to gain entrance into highly touted colleges, universities and to secure desirable positions in the global marketplace.
At the Hanal School, we encourage our students to explore the benefits of community service.  Our annual service trip to our sister school in Guatemala affords our students with the opportunity to participate in activities which enhance the lives of their younger counterparts.  Suffice to say, these experiences enhance their psycho-social development.
