I was leery of writing a review because I dislike those who only write reviews when they're negative. I will try to be balanced and fair. The academics are strong, the principal is fair and a good human being with an incredible work ethic, most of the staff are generally happy and overall I was feeling glad we found the school. The one thing that is discouraging is the prevalence (from our perspective) of negative reinforcement by teachers (not administrators). I think the teachers could use some professional development in the area of compassionate guidance and positive redirection. This would be a great school if those were more standard. I know how hard it is to be a public school teacher, at least I can only imagine, so it's hard to be too critical.

This is a magnet school located conviently right next door to the St. Louis Science Center. They have a highly trained staff that truly cares about your child receiving the best education. The only downside is that there is a lottery process involved.
i think hancock school is one of the best schools around. i have a 12 year old daughter in 6th grade and she loves it. she hates when she misses. she has very good grades, always has and all her teachers love her.
Some of the finest public education you can find. The principle is amazing. The staff is renowned for caring for students. Great sports and camaraderie.
It's a good school academic and athletic wise but behavior wise it can be improved. It also needs a lot of improvements and organization.
The campus is a safe place to attend. This school simply is fantastic! There are many resources available to you.
