Herbert Hoover High School helped shape me as a person! The administration cares greatly about the students that go here. The town and the school have such great pride for our community. We all come together in tough times, including the 2016 flood, and the pandemic. Even though we are in portables, my high school experience has been amazing! The Herbert Hoover High School administration takes care of the small amount of bullying we have, and many other issues that might arise. I wouldn’t change anything! The only thing that I’m ready to see change is seeing the new school built.
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.
