    "Tremendous opportunities find students at Hoover, which is a wonderful school for students at these special years between elementary and high school. At the age when so many students are struggling to find their identity, Hoover offers a wealth of performing arts programs, bilingual immersion classes, and extracurricular activities. Academically, Hoover teachers show amazing techniques and strong instruction. Students are going to find a strong focus on the fundamentals of each subject at Hoover, building true mastery before moving on to a new area of study. There is always room to improve with any school, and so it is with Hoover. Just be ready and flexible - this is a great place to learn."

    "This is my daughter's last year at Hoover and we will be missing it. I have to say that our experience here has been nothing but positive. The teachers are great and will always make time to communicate with you about anything. The adminstrative staff is excellent. The best part about Hoover is the performing arts program. All programs, choir, band, dance, drama, ect are at a professional level and very entertaining. This school helps turn kids love of the arts into special talents. Parent involvement is very high in the arts, sports and academics which is why this school has improved so much in it's API scores and overall. I would recommend this school to any parent that has an incoming 6th grader."

    "I am a student at Hoover and I like the involvement. I am a college level advanced student and the advanced math program is great! Also I am in intermediate orchestra and started beginning orchestra in elementary school. The staff are very competent and engaged in our learning. We have a strong 8th grade Leadership force that are smart and supportive, not mean and "popular" like some Leadership councils at other schools. It could use more sports opportunities though. And while the curriculum is great, some eighth grade students can sometimes encourage drug use. I think the only issue is some of the students."

    "They didn't let me wear a pink backpack with hello kitty on it because it was pink. Apparently it's a gangster color,and the next day I see some other girl with the SAME backpack walk right by my teacher who said pink wasn't allowed. The teacher even said hi to her."
