Hancock High School Recognized in National School Rankings

Welcome to Hancock Public Schools

The Hancock school district dates back to 1863 but because of a fire in 1869, records about this period are sketchy. The first school was a typical one-room structure furnished with hard wooden benches and heated by a round shaped wood stove.

In 1869, a union school was constructed on Franklin Street. The building was used until replaced in 1875. This building was destroyed by fire on July 25, 1922, and was succeeded by the present building currently owned by Finlandia University and formerly the Hancock Middle School, which was built in 1923.

Three additional school buildings were utilized during much of the 1900's; Edward Ryan, E.L. Wright and the Ripley School. Condon Field was dedicated in 1952, and the district's bus garage was acquired from the City of Hancock in 1963. Seventeen acres of land located east of Elevation Street was acquired from the Quincy Mining Co. as a grant in 1970. In 1988, the Hancock voters passed a 7.46 mil bond issue to build a $5,750,000.00 elementary school. In 1989 the building was opened for use. Read more...
