About Hanover School

Hanover School History  

Records show that in the 1860s there was a school listed called the Hanover School, or the South Meriden School. In 1930, Hanover School was renamed the Robert Morris School. Two years later, the school mysteriously burnt to the ground after plans were made to rebuild a new school on West Main St. which would close it down for good. In 1934, Hanover school was rebuilt and there were 8 teachers and 234 pupils.  Then, in 1954, 18 rooms were added to the school. Another addition and 6 more rooms were built. In the 1990s Hanover School was closed for asbestos removal. Over the next few years remodeling, upgrading, and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act gives us the Hanover school that exists at present.  The last, most recent and amazing addition, is the Kindergarten wing.  This 8 room wing with heated floors and state-of-the-art classrooms was built in the 2012 -2013 school year.
