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.

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.

the is like the most important value. teaches are transparent as they share what they teach to the students to their parents or guardians during semester workshops. they provide room and an atmosphere for better learning by encouraging the students to keep focused at all times and give the students the guidance they need to improve for the better.

This is like the rule of thumb at Hoover high school. The students are welcome to address their concerns and a solution is reached with a view of teaching the importance of this value. the principal encourages the parents to listen to their children and encourages parents to endeavor to understand their children for better learning . team work bears fruits as all are on the same page when things are okay or in the contrary.

absolutely yes. no child is left behind. This is particularly observe through out the students learning process. the school has a fantastic mechanism of making sure the interests of students are given a 100% consideration by the staff. it is important to write about the great work of the counselors who deal with all issues and concerns of students and their parents tirelessly.

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.

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!
