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.

Hoover is fantastic! We love it-my kids feel safe and there are alot of activities for them to participate in. My daughter was elected to the student council and was placed in the advanced drama class. The performing arts simply can't be beat-excellent!

This school is great. My kids love the drama classes and have made so many new friends. The teachers are responsive and they have fun weekend trips and activities to participate in. The surrounding community is so nice and safe-I don't mind my kids walking!

For students who excel at math, science, and reading and writing, are they going to be bored and unchallenged? ...  Read more

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

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
