Hoover Elementary School 2

My son is in 1st grade at Hoover. He was bullied and painted as the bully for defending himself in kindergarten and for 1st he was put in a classroom with 2 teachers and when they were gone for a couple months over winter, yet another teacher and now he is so off track that he has to have a major intervention from the doctors and school. I voiced my opinion on 'job sharing' several times since the start of the year and now that my son has slipped through the cracks, they tell me they are sorry and it should have never happened. My poor little boy is so lost because of this horrible situation that this school put him in. It was irresponsible and negligent at the very least!

I have had kids in several Neenah elementary schools and Hoover is by far the best! Regardless of the population or socioeconomic status of the kids- this school has some of the most dedicated and special staff around. It has extraordinary leadership with it's principal. Their committment to making it a respectful and healthy learning environment is wonderful! They are relentless in believing that every child can be successful ! Bravo to the Hoover Huskie staff!

The teachers are dedicated and caring. The principal is a good leader and easy to talk to. The PTO is gaining strength and has several successful, fun fundraisers each year to support classroom activites, technology, and field trips. Family events like "Boo Bash", the Spaghetti Dinner/Bingo, and many CLC nights are fun and well attended. Free/reduced numbers listed in 2007 comment below are no longer accurate. See Wisconsin DPI website for current numbers.

Classroom ratios have gone up to 20:1 some are 23-24:1. Considered Neenah's 'low income inner city' school. Reduced lunch participants are now around 70%. Minority students have also increased. For the most part has wonderful, dedicated teachers. There has been a high turn over the past 2 years which can be frustrating because your child may constantly be getting a teacher that is new to the school or teaching. Also the principal is new (this is his first principal position). He is eager and dedicated to the students. The Support teachers, such as math or reading, are wonderful. There are many students that need Special Education and the school seems to have adequate staffing. Parent invovlement in the school is very low. Many do not attend the PTO or volunteer to participate in after school, extra curricular activities. There are many family events, such as movie night through out the year.
