I enjoyed attending this school because the teachers are friendly, understanding, and put the needs of students above all. Any topic, lesson, or assignment that gave me trouble was easily met with guidance. Although some of my peers had disciplinary issues often resulting in school wide punishment/restrictions, I feel that these procedures were beneficial in the growth and maturity of young adolescents. This school also has a tremendous amount of school spirit which drives the student body and creates a fun and lively atmosphere. I would highly recommend attending this school, especially if you want to be involved as an active member in your community.

The teachers and staff at Hoover care so much about the student's personal lives and futures and continually urge us to do our best. Although conditions ere not always ideal going to school in portables, they still encouraged us to see the brighter side of things and to focus on our schooling. If there was only one thing I could change about Hoover, it would be some of the student's expectations of themselves. Many of them don't care about their education or future and sometimes ruin it for the others with their poor attitudes. I have made many friendships at Hoover with people that I wouldn't have thought possible, including teachers. One of my favorite things about high school is the spring sports season. I play softball at Hoover and we have won three state championships. That's another amazing thing about Hoover is the community and the staff being there to support us during a time of immense pressure. There is no other school I would have rather gone to.
Herbert Hoover is an amazing school. The areas it lacks aren’t its own fault, or even administrative faults. Its due to the county. Despite the flood and losing the school the senior class of 2020 never got to attend, we have nicer facilities, larger rooms, more bathrooms, and each room has its own heating and cooling system which doesn’t happen in regular schools. Almost every single teacher and administrator cares about each student’s future and they treat us like the young adults we are. We have responsibilities and are held accountable for our words and actions. I could not imagine going to another high school because after spending four years with these people, I wouldn’t have it any other way. The circumstances aren’t always ideal, but what is? I would like to see more class subjects come to Herbert Hoover. I feel as though we don’t have the same opportunities that many other schools in the area have.
