Character Journey

                                      Character Badge

Hancock Place High School recognized the need for a formal and systemic character education program several years ago. At a time when discipline referrals were high and standardized test scores and attendance were low, the high school formed a committee to address these areas. The committee was comprised of teachers, support staff, students, parents, and members of the Board of Education (BOE). Through a series of surveys and meetings, the core values of Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility were gleaned. The committee then worked to embed character education into the fabric of the high school. HPHS continually seeks to improve our school through the work of character education. Hancock Place High School was named a Missouri State School of Character in the 2017-2018 school year.
