Hocker Grove is a very good school. There are hardly any fights that I have seen and the teachers do their best to keep the class in order. I ahve noticed that there are childten from out of the county that have transfered in and they tend to be more diobediant than the kids that live in the district. ...  Read more

Principal Pfortmiller has done a great job implementing the SOAR guidelines (Safe Behavior, On Task, Act Responsibly, Respect Self and Others) to keep students disciplined and in control. Our son has thrived at the school over the past two years even though he's not in the popular crowd. I cringed ...  Read more

I was throughly dissatisfied with my term at Hocker Grove. The principal has no control over the students whatsoever and they do not put harsh enough punishments on kids who posses or sell drugs at school. Ever since the new vice principal has come though, too many rules have been put into effect. I ...  Read more

I think the school has improved somewhat over the last couple of years. My eldest son attended Hocker for both 7th and 8th (2006-2008) and we really struggled with him because he was really picked on, and it seemed like fights were not stopped as quickly or as efficiently as they could have been. Not ...  Read more

I am a student at Hocker Grove right now. I was there last year, too. It is one awesomely, amazing school. I'm going to be so sad when I have to leave after this year. Anybody who gets to go here should feel so lucky, and I know that you will just love it! I love Hocker Grove beyond limits to the point ...  Read more

I like that this school is not as large as some other Shawnee Mission schools. I do see many students that are not Johnson County residents bending the rules and sneaking into Hocker Grove when they really live in the next county... and I have to say that it is hard to blame them because the next county ...  Read more
