Leading the Charge Towards Excellence

Hanrahan Mission

The mission of all staff at Hanrahan Elementary is to inspire students to become passionate, engaged global thinkers who are lifelong learners, culturally competent, and socially aware in preparation for a successful vigorous life.

Hanrahan "Core 5" Beliefs

R.E.A.D.I (Responsibility, Excellence in All We Do, Accountability, Determination-Determined to do the Right Thing, and Integrity - Integrity Is What You Do When No One Is Looking) is an acronym representing those core characteristics selected by our staff. As a faculty, we should continuously promote these attributes among our students. Our students are expected to demonstrate these characteristics throughout our learning community. It is our responsibility to encourage students to be READI at all times.



College Prep Program

Hanrahan Elementary houses the College Prep Program for elementary students. This is a  prestigious honor awarded to candidates who meet the criteria of scholarship, excellence, and fervor for learning.
