There are bunch of thieves in Hoover Middle School. What a shame! My daughter's iphone and her money got stolen and she also found out her friend's iphone got stolen not long ago. It's a place of education for their future but they're learning to be a thief instead!

I have been at this school 2 years and it just keeps getting better. The principal is working with the staff to make an inner city school become a better place for all kids.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
