Hoover is a pretty good school if you are enrolled in the AP or honors programs. There's a pretty big difference between AP classes and regular classes in this school.

My son just graduated from Hoover Higher School in 2007. He is attending University of CA San Diego. He graduated from Hoover as top 4%. Mr. Welsh, the principal is the best. He knew my son since he was attending the elementary school in the GUSD. If parents feel this school is so bad, why not send ...  Read more

This is my child's first year at Hoover after transferring in from a private school. So far, I have been very happy with her teachers and have had the utmost cooperation from the counselors.
