  • World Robotics Competition

    Kimberly McKinnon, Hanford High School sophomore, has been named a “2017 FIRST Tech Challenge National Dean’s List Finalist”. McKinnon was one of three students representing Washington State who attended the world robotics competition this past April in Houston.

    “The mission of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is to show students that science, technology, and problem-solving are fun and rewarding, and are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all,” states founder Dean Kamen. 

  • Preserving the past

    Hanford High School junior Hannah Doyle is hoping to preserve the past by telling the stories of those who lived through it. Doyle is one of eight students across the nation selected to gather the stories of those who served in World War II. Her video interviews will be added to the collection at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

         “I think it’s really important to preserve the stories of these World War II veterans while we still can,” says Doyle. Learn more in this KONA news story.

  • Falcon Attendance

    DID YOU KNOW?

    • Students should miss no more than 9 days each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation. 
    • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.
    • Missing 10%, or about 18 days, of the school year can drastically affect a student’s academic success.
    • Students can be chronically absent even if they only miss a day or two every few weeks.
  • Hanford High is in the top 50 Best High Schools in Washington

  • Benton Franklin Crisis

    The Counseling Services staff would like reminded students that support is available to anyone who needs it at the Hanford High School Counseling Office. Also, two additional resources everyone can access are the Benton-Franklin Crisis Response Unit and the Crisis Text Line. The Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via text messaging. All you do is text 741741 and a live, trained crisis counselor receives the text and responds quickly. The Crisis Text Line does not charge texters, but standard messaging rates may apply.
