The best elementary school in Mt Lebanon. Smallest school, smallest class size, awesome experience for kids and parents.

Fantastic school! Mt Lebanon has one of the very best school districts in the state, and Hoover is the smallest of the elementary schools in the district with just 2 classes per grade, and a great (low) student-teacher ratio. It's just a great community.

The new principal is doing a great job with Hoover. She is reinforcing all the skills that were loss by the past principal who was here. It is nice to have a more modern principal who is familiar with the new century ideas. Teachers and parents will still need to improve dramatically.

I am happy that they are changing the principal here. The previous principal didn't seem like a nice person. Maybe Hoover can become a great school once again instead of falling far behind the rest like its done in the past years.

For a school that borders Mount Lebanon and Upper St. Clair, it should have much higher school scores than it does. The teachers in the lower grades seem to have more talent than the upper grade teachers in this school- the kindergarten probably has the best overall routine. The principal stages to be nice, caring, and a good person . . . however, anyone can read someone who can't 'stage the best'- so I definitely don't trust this principal.

There is alot tolike about this school. If you get the right teacher like anywhere you are golden. Some are tremendous; some are just OK and play the part early and late in the year. You have to push the envelope if your child is gifted as if not, they will be satisfied if the kid cruises by. They will respond when pushed and will work with you.

I have 2 kids at Hoover, in 1st and 3rd grade - it's been excellent so far. They've had great teachers (I feel that my children are being very well educated and challenged as needed) and the principal is very approachable. The staff is nice, caring and attentive. The school is one of the smallest in the district, but the student body is fairly diverse. The community atmosphere is very warm, friendly and relaxed, with great parental involvement, support of academics, culture and sports.
