School has many good teachers, the administration is not seem worth valuing them, or to the many parents complaining that the principal does not say hello when passing, does not look professional. School needs painting, maintenance, looks abandoned. It is something that parents look for when choosing a school for their children, more nowadays with the amount of options out there to choose from. I give 5 to the many good teachers that the school has, Mr. Cheney, Ms. Patino, Ms. Rubio, Ms. Bonnin, MS Rodriguez, I can continue on and on, the list is endless. The rest of the school, needed changes.

Happy with some things and not about others..some great teachers, however the principal is not consistantly well-mannered, well-spoken or welcoming. There also seems to be much discontent and miscommunication issues amongst parents and PTA. Overall, as a parent I sense hypocrisy there. This school used to be better but needs improvement. The only positives are the individual teachers, and other school staff that are a valuable asset to the school.

I love this school!! My daughter came from a South America's country and she didn't know any word in English, but there she's learned very lot in just 3 months! Actually, she's been studying there for almost2 years and her FCAT was the best of her class! Specially I recommend teachers as Mr Vidal, Ms Medina, Ms Dupree and Mrs Rubio, for me the best teacher there. I have a PK boy too and he's counting the days to go to his first VPK day in Oliver Hoover, my family and I love this wonderful School!

My son went to this school, started in 2nd grade and graduated in 5th grade. I just want to start off by saying that this school by far has the best teachers., They care so much about each student. They are very supportive and encourage each student to do their best. 3rd grade was probably my best memory. FCAT, FCAT, FCAT, its also about FCAT. My sons 3rd grade teachers from the 1st day of school prepared each student and volunteered to offer extra help if needed. Great teachers! Great Students! Great School!

I have four children that attend Oliver Hoover. I am very pleased, it goes above expectation with all matters regarding the school. The teachers actually care! I've dealt with many teachers and administrators and they are all very caring and go above and beyond for the students. I couldnt have asked for a better elementary school for my children!

On average, my first grade child would come home with a spelling assignment (3 x each, etc.), 4 pages of reading out of a work book, 2 to 3 pages of math out of a workbook and a story to read for homework every day. I felt that was way too much for my child, but her teacher most certainly did not. Her teacher had little to no prior experience teaching the first grade and it showed. She lacked compassion for the little ones and played favorites. I've never experienced my child not being a favorite unitl this year and i have to admit... It hurts. She really disappointed me. Other than this, I would say it is a very good school with a kind and caring office staff. Good luck to you.

I am a Parent & also a former student. My son has attended Oliver Hoover since the 1st grade. Teachers & staff are wonderful. There are a lot of familiar faces from when I was a student. The principal is very sweet & kind to the kids & parents. It's a shame he has to retire this year. Parents are encouraged to participate & volunteer when they can which is great because a lot of other schools tend to push parents away. It is a true family atmosphere from the moment you walk into the office. There is a lot of school spirit & the curriculum is great. My son has learned a lot. His teacher is fantastic. Mrs. Chavez really goes the extra mile to help those kids that need the extra push & is very nuturing & has great communication with the parents. Overall, a wonderful school ! C.Simon
