    I was not impressed with this school. There was no help when my child was struggling. The principal was more worried about herself and how the school looked to the community. very unsatified.

    Smaller school great teachers and smaller classes. My daughter loves it here and has had a great experience so far.

    Daughter and Son both attended Hooverville from k-6. Wonderful school with caring and progressive teachers.

    This is a great school - the teachers are there to teach and help you. My son has had a great few years there and my daughter is just starting out.

    This is the best in the district! The principal is very hands on with each of the classes. The teachers help each other for the after school program to assit those that are having trouble. Safety is #1 walking thru the front door. The PTO is outstanding at providing for the school. The only thing I dislike is if they have too many in your grade you are shipped to another school in the district.
