My experience with Hoover High School could not too no other. All of my teachers were kind and caring and always made sure each student was prepared. No only we're the teachers and environment was great but to top it off the sports team. Cheering on the bucs was one of my greatest memories in high school. Having such outstanding athletes and coaches made our school stand out from any other. Hoover was my second home and I would not in a million years wanted to go to a different school. Also, Hoover was so complex and knew how to keep everyone safe. We would practice fire drills, tornado drills and code red drills to make us prepared and more sufficient if the event really occurred. None the less I would like to thank our principal Mr. Hulin for being the best principal ever. Not only did he make me cry at graduation but made me feel happy that I had such a wonderful time at Hoover high school. Go bucs!
Review Hoover City Schools
I love Hoover City Schools! I attended elementary school, middle school, and high school. I felt I was in a learning environment with great teachers. I will graduate this year, and I am already having withdrawal symptoms.
I went to Hoover High School. Graduated in 2016. I came from a small school and was widely unexpected when I came over to HHS. The first thing I noticed was how white girls made these little clicks haha. However as time passed by it was Hoover High School that really helped pave way to my success or future successes. From the AP, IB, or dual enrollment opportunities provided to the fact that I worked on an individual basis to achieve individual success was something not many students have access to. I was able to make my own antibiotic and pesticide and compete at INTEL, largest pre-college science fair in the world in which I placed. If it wasn't for the nurturing, innovative-friendly innovative environment HHS encouraged, I don't think I would have made it as far! Over all great school.
