    "Hancock College Prep is a fine school that improves with every passing year, as it has increased public standing, became a selective enrollment school, and cultivated a more efficient education system for its students. However, it is abysmal in that there is a lack of diversity and students that are perhaps not totally invested in bettering their education experiences; this may, perhaps, be due to the facility not being the most up-to-date and agreeable, as well as school culture in the community. Nonetheless, the school improves, and can continue to see improvement so long as the focus remains on the welfare of the students and their respective environment."

    "It's a great school to prepare you for college. The teachers are all great and they do not baby you; therefore, you get college ready because you learn how to be more independent. Since the beginning, you have a lot of work. It's not like 8th grade anymore and that's the point of coming to high school. Not everyone is capable of accomplishing their high school years, but in Hancock, it is easy to finish your years if you really focus. It's just a good school."

    "About Hancock College Prep. I liked that teachers were always open to help students. As a bilingual person that came to Unites States just sophomore year I faced many difficulties but I was able to keep my grades up and do great in my high school with help from my teachers. Hancock is a public school and of a budget cutting we don't have many resources and outstanding after school programs which I would love to see it changes over the years."

    "I loved the staff. They are all so kind and willing to help with any problem. The only downside of the school is the building. It is really old and lacks modern necessecities"

    "I transferred to Hancock my Sophmore year because I was dealing with depression at my old school. Everyone was accepting and welcoming me to the school. As junior year came, CPS was switching the ACT to SAT like three times on us, so it only confused us a lot on what we were actually supposed to be learning to prepare for the test. Senior year is stressful, and the teachers are encouraging us to finish strong. Although I did bad on my ACT, college are not biased on my scores because I am an A-B student."
