Hoover High School traces its roots to one of the original "Over-the-Mountain" schools - W.A. Berry High School.  Together, Hoover High School and its predecessor have produced countless, outstanding alumni who have helped shape the world.

Hoover High School's large, dynamic campus serves a student population of approximately 2,950 students.  With personalized, differentiated learning, numerous academy programs and a low student-teacher ratio, the school operates as and has the feel of a much smaller campus.  Of note, Hoover High School is one of only 136 high schools in the United States offering the AP Capstone Diploma, in addition to the Alabama high school diploma.
