Welcome to Hanford High School GEAR UP! Here you can find information about the Hanford High School Gear UP Program.
G.E.A.R.U.P - Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs
S.O.A.R3 - Success and Opportunity through Affordability, Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
The goal of HHS SOAR GEAR UP is to provide every student within the class of 2020 (Freshmen for the 2016-2017 school year) with the opportunity to achieve their post-secondary aspirations. By post-secondary we mean any sort of education AFTER high school. This could be a 4 year university, trade school, community college, military program, etc. GEAR UP does this through tutoring, college preparation activities, field trips, providing testing opportunities, summer programming and much more.
Your GEAR UP Site Directors are:
