    I go to Hanshew Middle School and I am very disappointed with its higher level programs.. Other than that it is an excellent school with great teachers. I've really enjoyed being a student at Hanshew.

    Hanshew is an overall good school. Their gifted program is excellent. They offer higher level math science and language arts programs. The administration and teachers are very understanding and helpful to the students.
