Hooper has improved tremendously since the addition of its present principal. She is bright, experienced, and truly understands what it takes to make a school work in today's very complicated education setting.
The principal has failed to help the school. Many of the best teachers have left. Everyone looks sad. And test scores have not improved.
My son used to go to this school. Luckily he had that one teacher that was great. But unfotunately the shcool itself and other teacher is bad. Teachers there don't show involvement. They don't go above & beyond for teh kids. Other factors that play role in the schools rating is the limitation in funds. I guess if tehy had more funds they could probably ooffer more activities. Seems to me that as the school keeps being a 1 the teachers care less and less and unfortunately being that its a low income neighboehood with working, non-english speaking parents that also has equals the students performance that equals the schools perfomance. It's been too many years and teachers still don't step up.
Hooper is an average but im sur eit would be better if it had more funds.
Excellent teachers. Excellent coaches. Administration could more supportive of parents and teachers. The arts are lacking at this school.
The teacher at this school are very great. Most are willing to lend a helping hand when asked.
This school has a new principal who is doing his very best to raise student test scores, teacher level of professional development and many other positive things. Most of the staff is committed to excellence and parent involvement is definitely increasing. The school also has an excellent bilingual coordinator who is working closely with all the teachers to get the ELD portfolios in line. Bilingual classes are available. The school is improving each year.
This school is far too large to effectively serve its student population.
