Principal's Message

At the Hancock Central School District, we believe in preparing our students to become college and career ready.

For each student to reach this goal, our staff works collaboratively to foster high levels of cognitive thinking and 21st-century skills, while teaching to the New York State Common Core curriculum.

It is our goal to encourage life-long learners who become productive citizens.
