I am a graduate from Hoover High School 2012. This was a very great school. I loved my teachers they tried there best to make sure I understood the material. Ms.Kruse was the best english teacher I ever had she taught me so many new things and I actually started to like english a lot more. At Hoover ...  Read more

Hoover is a great school. I very much enjoy coming in every morning. This is something I can honestly say I have never said about another school before. I have read some of the previous reviews and I do partially agree. Most students here are the typical suburaban Abercrombie and Fitch type. The others ...  Read more

All four of my children went to Hoover High. Two have gone on to college and are thankful they had such a great school to prepare them for their studies in college.

As as former student of Hoover High, I can certainly say that I was well prepared for college and entry into the 'real world'. Yes, it is a big school, but so is the real world. While I did not play sports, my brother was on the football team and I am so glad that he was. He was not a strong student, ...  Read more

Great school, overall, but way too much emphasis on athletics. They need to realize that winning is not everything.

I have two children at Hoover High. Academically, I think it is a great school. The diversity of classes and extracurriculars is awesome. However...there is way too much emphasis on athletics, especially football. Athletes get preferential treatment over other 'standouts' in the school. I have had good ...  Read more
