HAP at Hansen Elementary School

At Hansen Elementary School, the Hansen Alternative Program’s (HAP) mission is to bind children, teachers and parents together in a progressive educational environment. This setting enhances a child’s love of discovery and learning, while developing academic and social skills at an individualized pace. HAP emphasizes team-teaching opportunities, parental involvement, and multi-aged classrooms, and fosters an active, hands-on learning experience for all children.

The key goals of the program are to:


  • Cultivate a sense of community;

  • Increase the amount of personalized instruction students receive; and,

  • Create specialized activities and learning opportunities to expand on the established curriculum.
