Hoover Elementary School Reviews
Rating 2 out of 5 4 reviews
Prior to Covid I would have rated school district much higher. The last 10 months have been a complete nightmare with lack of leadership from the board. The board members are so unprofessional do not get along and an embarrassment to our community. There has been and is absolutely no plan at all to get back to school full time. Getting hybrid was extreme chaos. I look around at surrounding school districts with envy. Contemplating moving just to get out of this nonsense. Teachers union calls all the shots and is arrogant. Kids are not the first priority....teachers union is number 1 priority. I would run for now until there is turnover on the board over the next few years. It completely breaks my heart to say this but sadly the reality. You can find the school board meetings online. I will say most teachers are great and individually are amazing!!! But they are lead by the union and inadequate board.
My second grader was bullied repetitively in class, with little done by the teacher to fix the problem. She always loved school before, and after 3 months of attending Hoover she no longer was interested and feared going to school. She became traumatized by all of the bullying caused by the serious division of rich and poor. She also claimed that her teacher was mean and yelling at the children often.
There is a very large divide between the rich and the poor. Most teachers/facilty are great. A school uniform would serve this school very well.
They speak strongly about bullying, but I did not see any action after several reports.
