Herbert Hoover High School Reviews
I'm in a clubs and "sports" and I am a shy person no one barly ever talks to me and ditches me for other people who are more "fun". Although I point out that, I will say that the teachers are great, they're friendly, have a sence of humour, and want you to learn because they know just how great you can be if you try and they are ALWAYS encouraging.
hoover high School is a really great school to go to. once you get involved into sport and into and into the clubs it just makes it that better. there are really great teachers that will acrully teach you and get to know you..=)
"i think Hoover high is a good school. i especially love how there putting their foot down and trying to control the students in a positive way. for example, the tarty swipe, i don't see students running around in the halls, ditching class, i hear nothing its quiet. i love it and i am a senior here and i am impressed on what our school has become.
