About this school

The Hoover School community is committed to ensuring that everyone works towards his or her potential and challenges one another. Every student at Hoover is treated as a unique person with individual strengths and needs, and is provided high quality academic preparation. Hoover uses Read, Think, Apply (RTA), an approach to literacy instruction with a primary goal to ensure that students from kindergarten to fifth grade read, think, and independently apply literacy strategies and grade-level standards-based skills. Additionally, we use the Si Swun math program, which has been proven to dramatically increase math scores. The FOSS science program is used and led by Hoover's science teacher. The FOSS program was developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science, which provides hands-on collaborative learning experience in the natural sciences. We offer different services to our students and families, such as afterschool programs, parent education classes, ELAC/SSC, PALS counseling, speech therapy, an outreach consultant, peer mediation, culture keepers, a farmers' market, a salad bar, student government, a free snack program, safety patrol, basketball and flag football, food holiday baskets, and a children's backpack program. Students want to come to Hoover because of the many different activities available to them. In addition to the programs and services already mentioned, there are computer classes, library time, music, and P.E.
