Open Quote My sister, sister-in-law, eldest daughter and eldest son went to this school and they loved it. Now I have both a 6th and 7th grader who want to go here too. My son already did the 6th grade here at Hoover last year and wants to finish his jr high school years at the same school. I loved the teachers and classes and if they want to go here, then I want them to go here. I believe the kids are the ones to decide. They will work harder to keep their grades up for what they want.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
