Where a great start does make a difference!

Welcome, a feeling we want everyone to have as they walk through the doors at Hanover-Horton Elementary.  The building is not only inviting, but also strives to provide a positive environment conducive to learning.
The elementary building, which opened in 1997, is located in the village of Hanover.  We are a Young 5’s thru 5th grade building, and we also house 3 preschool classrooms.  A little over 500 students are enrolled and are instructed by a professional staff of 27.  Many staff members have earned degrees beyond the Bachelor Degree level and are committed to meeting the needs of all students.  In addition to the core content areas of English Language arts, math, science, and social studies, students also receive physical education, computers, fine arts, art, and library story time.”.  RtI services are available for students needing additional assistance.
Parental involvement is very high at the elementary and what a difference it makes in their child’s education.  Besides working in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, attending after school functions and volunteering with the PTA, our building averages over 90% attendance for student conferences.  With the dedicated staff and the tremendous support received from parents and the community, the elementary will continue to experience success with its students.
An open invitation is extended to you.  Come and see the quality education your child can receive.  Tours are available throughout the year.  By making a fresh start with Hanover-Horton Elementary you will see the difference.

TRUE Community Credit Union

TRUE Community Credit Union is proud to partner with Hanover Horton Elementary.
Since 1991, we have provided students with real work experience by operating the student-run credit union branch, where students with a TRUE Community Credit Union savings account can save money right at school.
In 2019, we partnered with Jackson County schools to create the Jackson $aves program, which provides incoming kindergarteners with an educational savings account to help pay for education and training after high school. Students can save for their future right at their school!
