The curriculum at Hanger Hall reflects our emphasis on strong academics, creativity and personal growth. The program covers all requirements of the state of North Carolina and much, much more. For example, we teach four years of math in three years. Students experience a wide variety of learning opportunities through hands-on projects, field trips, and dramatic presentations. All girls participate in service projects throughout the community.
In everything from Athletics to writing, strength and independence are emphasized. The girls at Hanger Hall study languages all three years (we are one of only a very few middle schools offering a choice of languages), along with art, drama, and music. They learn math and science in the classroom and then apply that knowledge outside. Hanger Hall regularly participates in the Math Counts competition and the North Carolina High School Math Competition. Field trips and class trips greatly enhance classroom learning. Our challenging academic program includes:
• Humanities (history, geography, literature and writing)
• Science (including lab experiences)
• Math (pre algebra, algebra)
• Foreign language (French or Spanish)
• Computer Skills
With our proximity to the Weaver Boulevard greenway and the UNCA campus, the girls spend many clear days outside. And, with such small class sizes, no one gets ignored or lost in the shuffle.
