For fourth consecutive year, enrollment is up at HHS

The 2012-2012 school year is off to a great start after the first day of classes on Tuesday, Sept, 4. This year's enrollment is up by two students compared to last year. This years first day enrollment was 285 compared to 283 on the first day last year. In the last four years Hancock Public Schools has had a steady increase in enrollment.

The increase of two basically came down to the graduation/ kindergarten numbers. There were 22 seniors starting out the school year last year and 24 kindergarteners have enrolled this year, which made a difference of two.
