I was a student at Hoover Elementary graduating the 5th grade in 1990. Because of the teachers that I had i went on to receive my Bachelors Degree and have since started on my MBA. My children are in the 4th and 1st grade this school year and are doing EXTREMELY WELL....in fact my daughter made HONOR ROLL for the 1st trimester. I know a few of the teachers that were just getting started when i attended Hoover that are still there and are STILL great teachers. My son's 1st grade teacher Mrs. Cheung being one of them. The principal Mr. Valle, has been a great resource for me and my children and he is very concerned and very involved in the education and well-being of all of his students. As a parent i honestly believe that it is the student's responsibility to bring forth all efforts in order to succeed, and i have done my best to instill this in my children. I also believe that it is the STUDENTS that make the school and not the school that makes the Student.
