Hanshew Middle School is situated in south Anchorage at the foot of the Chugach Mountains and is attended by 800 students in grades 7-8. Hanshew is home to a richly diverse population.  The school community is focused on academic excellence.  We are dedicated to providing a supportive environment where students will learn and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and ethics necessary to become successful members of society. 

Our school focuses on intentionally structuring a caring, positive learning environment with high expectations for academic achievement.  We serve seventh and eighth grade students through an academically challenging curriculum.  In addition to core areas of instruction we offer gifted, bilingual, multi-sensory instruction, special education math/reading supports and lunch tutorials.    Hanshew purposefully offers a rich selection of electives for student engagement.  Band, Orchestra, Choir, Art, Foreign Languages, Law Studies, World Cultures, numerous STEM courses, Robotics, CTE (Applied Tech, Business Education), SBP, Newspaper, Yearbook, and as of 2013-14, we added a Bio-Medical selection to align with the Bio-Medical program at Service High.
