Recently the website Niche ranked Hoover City Schools number one on on their "Safest Schools in Alabama" list:…/2…/07/20_safest_school_districts_in.html

You will be proud to know that your HOOVER CITY SCHOOLS rank number five in the nation! "This ranking is based on student and parent ratings of health and safety, area crime rates, and rates for expulsion, suspension, and school related arrests." -(from Niche website).  Here is the article from Niche

It is also interesting to note the amount of students that numbers 1-4 have: 1. 3,600 2. 3,200 3. 3,300 4. 1,600 5. Hoover 13,900.

As we have said before, HPD cannot do this alone:

Hoover Police + Hoover City School staff + Parents and Families + Students + City of Hoover + Hoover Community = a winning team. We're all in this together!!

We are proud to serve this community, and we know that you will take just as much pride, as we do, in the safety of our children and our schools. Way to go team!
