  • Meet Dr. Alfreda Brown, Counselor for the Class of 2026, and get her advice on a great freshman year!

  • Meet Mr. Taurus Felton, 9th Grade Principal, and learn about high school expectations.

  • Take a tour of Hoover High with the Hoover Ambassadors.


Please make every effort to have your freshman attend this orientation. The planned sessions and tour will help your freshman be prepared for a great first day and fantastic year! We can’t wait to meet your freshman!


Parents are welcome to walk the building while their student is at freshman orientation.


*Important Schedule Details for freshmen:


All PE classes are listed as Beginning Kinesiology, even if you are an athlete. This is correct on your schedule.


Pre-IB courses are not indicated on the schedule but are listed as Advanced Level. Pre-IB students should check their IB Google Classroom page to confirm they are in the correct class period or contact Mrs. Hamley with specific Pre-IB questions.


Preliminary student schedules for 2022 - 2023 will be available for viewing in PowerSchool on July 26th. Once schedules become finalized and enrollment is confirmed over the next few weeks, there may be some changes to class order as we balance class numbers. Students will need to check their schedule again prior to the first day of school, which is Thursday, August 11.

There should be very few course change requests at this point since students have been working on course selection since February. If your student’s schedule has an error, please complete this Schedule Correction Form by August 3rd. We are only accepting requests to correct errors; no preference changes will be accepted. The master schedule is built based on student requests during course selection, therefore, we cannot accommodate changes due to limited space. Please use the Google Form to communicate about student schedules so that all pertinent information is in one location.
