Good school. I do agree it could be better but I have seen worse. Good thing is, teachers and staff are working on resolving the problems.. With parent involvement this school will be a great school! I have an advanced student attending Hook and he is doing very well along with his group of friends. If we put our minds to it we can finish turning the school around. Parent/teacher involvement is key.

I attended hook this year. All the teachers are willing to take extra time to help a student in need. For the most part they are friendly, and the principle enforces all rules. Everyone is saying that there is always violence and that it is the teachers fault. Is it really? I think that it is a parents job to disciplind thier child. The security does a great job of watching out for the students safety. The teachers and principle enforce all rules when it comes to a staff or students safety. There is some great oppurtunitys your student will have if they attend Hook Jr. High :)

this is one of the worst schools ever...theres always fights, drug issues, not enough funds for advance kids most teachers dont care, grab your kids and run...you dont want to learn the hard way! just come & drive by right after school & see it for your self .....! but dont waste ur time if you care about your kids, dont alow them to attend Hook jr high.

I am currently attending this school. The teachers and staff are simply great. If you as a parent are worried about fights they don't happen here often. There is Security all around the school. If you want to see your child's grades every single week or so, you will see your student's most latest grade(s). I would recommend this school to any student and/or parent. I really liked this school and will miss this very much.

Hook Jr High does its best to meet the needs of every student that walks through its doors. If you want your child to attend a school where the staff goes out of its way to help, then this is the school for you. We are currently undergoing construction to complete a brand new gym and classrooms. Sure, we have our fair share of problems like every other school. I have worked at Hook for the last 4 years, and I hope to continue for a very long time. It is the best place to work with the most caring staff around. No doubt, when my children are old enough, they will attend Hook!

All three of my children attended Hook Junior High and all three are currently in college...one studying to be a nurse, one studying to become a Spanish teacher, and one studying to become an environmental engineer. Great teachers, great education and I feel a solid home life has led them into a positive and productive future. So many school experience, so many from Hook Junior High! Thank you teachers and staff!!!

Where do I begin?We moved here from Maryland but we move alot because of husbands job. So I'm very well informed on how schools should go and this is not it!!!! My daughter who has always been an honor roll student has only been here 2 weeks and has a student already trying to fight her. Then today she said some poor girl got beat up at lunch cause she is considered a nerd. I feel like I m sending my child to some inner city school out of a movie!!! She is on a waitng list for Riverside Prep. Please ...If you care about your childs education do not send them here!!!

It's dissapointing how teachers' get blamed for not being able to control the students ? What about the parents? It all starts at home. We confuse teachers with babysitters. If the kids dont know how to be quiet and behave the parents should also be diciplined. I think this is a great school . The techers have a huge challange every day and they do the best they do the best they can considering the dicipline and education the children bring from home.

Hook is the best school if you like crazy libarians, teachers(who can't teach well) who can't controll their class and principles who constantly change rules. Let me give you the 411....If your child scores average or even low proficient on their star test, they will be in a 0 or 8th period class(even though they are smart). If your child scores below average, they won't be placed in a 0 or 8th period class because THEY(meaning the teachers and principal) don't think they can get them up there. Isn't that ridiculous? Basically, they leave the not smart kids not smart. If you ask me, that school only wants your money.

I sent my daughter to hook. She has had to work vey hard because Hook gave her a huge challenge, but has pulled off straight A's. As for class size, the one time she started getting lost, I got involved and the teacher and I worked it out. This is the safest school, and the teachers care. I can't say enough good things about this school.

It is fantastic to see a school that offers so many programs to help its students. They have math remediation and intervention programs, language arts remediation program and several tutoring programs and this is jest during the week! I like the dress code and how well it is enforced. The entire staff really cares about all students at the school.

This school makes sure all students have ample learning opportunities. A student really has to try hard not to achieve. I loved my 4 children attending Hook. They each had a wonderful experience the 2 years they attended Hook.

My daughter is receiving an outstanding education at Hook Junior High. I make sure that I keep track of what she is supposed to be working on. I also hold her accountable for her actions. If more parents would do there part the teachers would have time to actually teach.

When I was a student at hook, every one of my teachers went the extra mile for me. The staff came early, left late, tutored extra hours, worked saturday, and let no avenue for any student to fail. They are without a doubt...The best!

The teachers at this school are very dedicated. They have extra classes available before and after school for students that need help catching up. My daughters algebra teacher came in early every day to meet with any students that had trouble with the previous night homework. I was happy with this school.

I am concerned with the staff members they allow to 'oversee' the safety and security of our children. I would rate this school as one of the poorest schools in the Victor Valley area.

I am increasingly concerned about the quality of education at this school, especially since the principal changed. The teachers do not answer phone calls. Part of this is the administration which now is punitive and appears to judge students guilty until proven innocent. Another contributing factor is that the classes are at least double in size what they should be. No campus enrichment activities and poor nuitrition are concerns.

I went to Hook Jr. High school both my 7th and 8th grades, and I think this school is very good. I am proud to have been a student at this school, and would like to say that if you want a good and safe learning environment you should send you children here.
