Hanahan High School (HHS) is home to a diverse population, serving the Daniel Island, Tanner Plantation, and Hanahan communities. In conjunction with the School Improvement Council, PTSA, and Booster Clubs, the school’s faculty and staff strive to make HHS the best school in the state.
The HHS curriculum is designed to serve diverse student interests and needs. Students benefit from access to a variety of Advanced Placement, Honors, Dual Credit, and Career and Technical Education courses. The South Carolina Curriculum Standards form the content curriculum for classes. The Career and Technical Education Program offers a variety of onsite career majors. The band, chorus, and JROTC programs complement course offerings. Students who need additional support receive it through a variety of programs on campus. School counselors serve to meet students’ academic, career and personal needs.
Recent accomplishments of Hanahan High Students include an increase in the number of career and technical education completers, greater parent/community involvement, a declining dropout rate, and increased Advanced Placement enrollment.
HHS has been recognized by the South Carolina Department of Education as a Palmetto Gold winner both for closing the achievement gap in academic performance and for overall student achievement. Additionally, a record number of students are acknowledged through the Renaissance Program for improvement in grades, attendance, and behavior. HHS students continue to excel academically. Graduating classes are awarded academic and athletic scholarships worth millions of dollars. Many seniors are Palmetto Fellows recipients, recipients of the Berkeley County School District Honors Diplomas and/or recipients of the SC Department of Education Academic Honors Award for exceeding expectations on both the math and English sections of the SAT or ACT.
HHS students participate in a wide array of extracurricular offerings. Our athletes consistently participate in Regional, Lower State and State championship competitions. The HHS Marching Pride Band consistently competes successfully at the SCBDA Region 5, All County, All State, Lower State, and State AAA levels.
