I loved being in band color guard and no one really bullied me I got extra help if I needed it

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
very effective. They follow through with the students to make sure the have done the work .dropping an email to the parent informing about the progress of a student or indicating it in report card make a big difference as that way the parents get a chance to chat with their children about school work.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
to me , it is the best way to reinforce classroom instructions . the students should be able to do it as it is derived from what the teachers have covered in class. it is just right.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
its advocated by all stakeholders. the school emphasizes and encourages the significance of the three values. Teaches the students to be honest with their school work . the school provides resources and platform for better learning by providing the tools to the students and providing a great learning environment. fairness is observed as all types of students are accommodated and their learning process is guided by fair instructions with an objective of achieving and realization of the goals of the students.



- a parent
the entire teaching staff go an extra mile for the sake of students. the principal is an incredible administrator. The hoover tornado marching band is hard to beat as they have extra ordinary skills as witnessed during the state competition. parents work closely with teachers as a team. One can rest be assured their children get the best of education and its a great school for children to develop and achieve high.

Hoover's Art Department is amazing and the principal Dr. Earl is forward thinking and cares a lot about students and staff. This is a great school for smart and creative kids who enjoy thinking critically and challenging themselves academically.

Hoover is a pretty good school if you are enrolled in the AP or honors programs. There's a pretty big difference between AP classes and regular classes in this school. My regular classes have a handful of desperate, loud students seeking attention by being rude. My honors and AP classes are full of students who are committed with their school work and at the same time are very easy to get along with. Beware of the terrible math teachers in Hoover!



- a parent
The cleanest , more secure school and clean record in the whole other schools . we had a bad experience last year in private school ,so after search, we found Hoover high school is the best for my daughter .because teachers are polite , more understanding,more patient and the most important thing no discrimination between A's student and lower student .

we thought this school was going to be great, but my sister has had the worst experience so far with the kids. She has been the victim of terrible racism and is constantly made fun of for her skin color and how she looks. It's crazy that this is going on, she just moved in with me from Ohio and is a very nice straight A honors student, the parents of these children should be very embarrassed.



- a parent
This is a nice school in a beautiful city with great people. Low crime area with high standards. A lot of Armenian kids which is a plus.
