Discover This School

Hoover Middle School enjoys a reputation for academic and artistic excellence that spans over 50 years. Our staff is working together to rededicate ourselves to this tradition, while ensuring access and equity for our families who have historically had the most difficulty integrating into our community. Our vision is to see all of our students, regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic status, become successful in our school. Our teachers work collaboratively to plan lessons and assess student learning. We are consciously developing joyful learning in our classrooms through an emphasis on projects and hands-on learning. Students also enjoy learning experiences in music, dance, and fine arts. Through the dedication of our PTA, we are equipping science classes with new microscopes for science classes, funding digital access and technology teaching in our classrooms, and supporting our student clubs. Our Chinese and Spanish Immersion programs recognize not only language needs, but also multicultural understanding and appreciation. We have also established daily access to Spanish and Chinese translation through parent volunteers.

Hoover is committed to listening and responding to our students, families, and staff within a culture of service and support. At Hoover, we believe we are here to provide the tools to build academic and social skills, increase self-esteem, and foster positive adolescent development. We continue to explore new ways to develop our culture so that every family and student in our school feels included.
