The Fine Arts Department pushes students toward excellence. The Hanks Band, Mariachi, Art and Choir have had representation at State Competitions for many years. Our Academics and Robotics program are impressive. Not to mention the Athletics programs If you want quality teaching and inspiration for your child, this is the place. My 3 children have all graduated from Hanks.
