When deciding where to buy our home, I told my husband it had to be in the Hoover district. The principle is fantastic, and very caring. The staff is also very caring and takes the time to help children with disabilities and they do not push them aside. My 20 yr old went to Hoover and my 8 yr old who ...  Read more

The principal is the weak link at this school. She likes administrative chores but she's not really into children. Why are we taxpayers paying her more than $140,000 (according to See Through NY) + benefits when Hoover ranks just 93rd in WNY, according to "Business First's" annual rankings?

The principal sits in her office all the time, when she is there, and doesn't like to be bothered with parents or kids.

We moved to this area in December08, so my son had to make that hard transition in the middle of the school year..which worried me. I just want to say, the staff at this school made my son feel more then welcome right from the start, as well as his classmates. The principal is also just wonderful. I ...  Read more

My family had recently moved this summer and were told Hoover would be the school my kids would be attending. My daughter is in 5th and my son is in 1st. We didn't know how it would compare to Roosevelt Elementary where they had gone before. We were pleasantly surprised for sure. My kids are doing ...  Read more
