I am a former student of Herbert Hoover and it was truly an amazing school. The teachers and staff are easy to talk to and always ready to help. The principal got off to a rocky start, but was able to pull through and show students, parents, and staff that though he is strict, he's willing to listen and improve upon the school I'd heard stories about what the school was like and until I heard there was to be a new principal I wasn't sure I wanted to go there. The principal had high standards for all the students and kept those standards helping students who didn't have much hope of going to college find hope and the ability to go for the seemingly impossible. Being at Hoover helped me grow into a better and stronger person, someone ready to take on the world.
