I absolutely loved Hoover High School! The faculty and staff were all very friendly and willing to help. The education was superior quality compared to other schools in the area. It is the best school I have ever attended, and I have moved quite a bit. They made sure that we were well-rounded by offering several different clubs and extracurricular activities, and they'd meet while school was in session to ensure that nobody was left out due to inability to stay after school hours, etc. This school is amazing! The diversity level is high, and the are accepting of different cultures. The technology is well kept up to date! They provided us with Ipads and we rarely used anything but the iPads, so we used hardly any paper, which helps the environment by reducing waste.
Because of Hoover’s large student body, diverse community, and limitless options, it is often defined as “Hoover University.” There are tons of resources for students to come by to become ready for college and every individual is required to take a Career Preparedness class in order to succeed in their desired career and in life in general. In addition to that, we have a college counselor in order to assist us with scholarships and career choices, college visits, and a humongous set of clubs designed to accommodate to everyone’s interests.
