Educationally speaking... Hoover Schools Rank With Best in State
Learning for Life. Those three simple words form a strong statement about Hoover City Schools. The system's overall goals for its students and teachers are high, and those standards are paying dividends in the number of students earning scholarships and going on to college. Teachers are also challenged to be the best they can be with incentives offered to those who become certified.One of the largest school systems in Alabama, Hoover has over 11,000 students and over 800 teachers. With support from top educators, government leaders, civic organizations, businesses, parents and other involved citizens, Hoover's 17 schools consistently rank among the best in the state. High standards in technology, curriculum and teacher training keep them there.
Hoover's schools, teachers and students are regularly recognized for achievements in academics, athletics, character and community service. The growth and development opportunities offered to students and teachers alike are virtually limitless. And although each school has its own unique qualities, the collective goal of Hoover schools is to provide learning experiences that last a lifetime.The beginning of the 2005 school year saw the opening of the new Berry Middle School near Spain Park High School for sixth graders only. By 2006, additional classroom space had been added for the seventh and eighth grades, and Hoover City Schools bid a fond farewell to the old Berry Middle School on Columbiana Road. Formerly known as Berry High School, the facility was Hoover's first high school, serving students for more than 40 years.
