Hanover School District No. 28 (open PDF of district boundaries) is home to approximately 270 students Pre-K-12th. With a four day week (Tuesday – Friday) and small class sizes, Hanover is a great place for students to learn. It is located in southern El Paso County between Colorado Springs and Pueblo. If you are interested in a rural lifestyle that is situated between two of Colorado’s major cities and only minutes from Fort Carson and Schriever Air Force Base, Hanover School District may very well be the place for you. Various housing options exist with new developments as close as a ten-minute drive along I-25 from Fort Carson’s Gate 20, and also a few miles from the district’s north edge on Peyton Hwy about 15 minutes north of Hanover Campus. (See the map below.)
Hanover District has two campuses – the original Hanover Campus (6th-12th) and Prairie Heights Elementary (Pre-K-5th). Hanover’s original campus (17050 S. Peyton Highway) is located among ranch, prairie, and multi-acreage properties 17 miles south of Highway 94 and about 15 miles southeast of Fountain. Hanover Campus has a newer Middle/High School facility (6th-12th). Prairie Heights Elementary (7930 Indian Village Heights) is located within a fifteen-minute drive south of Fountain among several rural housing developments situated west of I-25 that first began growing in the late 1990’s. Prairie Heights Elementary consists of the newer building and four modular buildings.
