Hoover has the best staff! It is next door to Stockton Skills now and often Hoover gets the shaft, yet the teachers stay here which tells me alot! I was concerned about being K-8, but the 7/8 teachers are very good and give kids their cell #s to call at night! It needs facilities and could be cleaner, but to me that is the district's fault not the teachers or staff. Sandy and the counselor know all the kids and many parents and help with anything you need and with what they can.

I have to say I have spent 4 unsuccessful years here at this school with my oldest child. The teachers here seem to be more into socializing with each other and playing favorites with other teachers kids or relatives kids. Don't get me wrong there are some good teachers here but unfortunately throughout the last 4 years my child has only been lucky to have 1 excellent teacher...A lot of the teachers here are too mood, rude and unmotivated in their attempts to educate our children. To me it seems like a lot of the teachers here at this school do not enjoy their job as much as they should. Children are not always on task there are difficulties when working with children and it seems like a lot of the teachers here seem to forget that.

I am working to improve the extra curricular activities available to the students. I would like to see more involvement from the community in combination with the staff to increase student improvement.

This year has begun with a wonderful revial of community focus. The after school program is at full capacity with a large waiting list. Despite any budget concerns, the facilitator is working to provide a quality program that meets the needs of the entire student base. Thank you for setting the pace for others to follow.

I believe that the school community is much better than that of my previous school. The PTA is actively involved in providing better materials for studnet learning. Recently, the local cable company had a community day where many parents came out and worked alongside employess of the company and many of the faculty members to update the school site. Everyday I see parents volunteering inside classrooms. Thank you to the parents of Hoover School!

My daughter has been in this school for two full years and I have not been happy with the quality of teaching or staff in general. One of the office secretary's is rude everytime I am in the office. The first teacher my daughter had in 1st grade was not able to handle children who were above avg in intellegience and energy. The second teacher she had in 1st grade was teacher of the year material. He was able to recognize my daughters abililties, strengths and weaknesses and she was in the top 4 at the end of the year. The second grade teacher bored her, she was #1 in math and 2nd in english. Now I am faced with one more year. Then school in general is old and small. There is very little extracurricular activities and I would not send my child there if I didn't live so close by.
