We have made a commitment to provide the best educational program possible for our students. The excellent quality of our program is a reflection of our highly committed staff.

Our school provides a welcoming, stimulating environment where students are actively involved in learning academics through a standards-based curriculum. We hold both staff and students accountable for their work, as we provide educational programs that meet or exceed state standards. Using assessment data to drive curricular programs, teachers analyze this information to develop effective instructional strategies and differentiated instruction that enable our students to reach proficiency. Collaborative efforts among administration, teaching staff, and parents will ensure students thrive in an environment that fosters emotional and academic success.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Hoover Elementary School…the home of the mighty Hornets!


I am very excited and honored to be named the Principal at Hoover Elementary. I am a product of the Santa Ana Unified School District; I attended Lowell Elementary, Willard Intermediate, and graduated from Santa Ana High School in 1991. I always wanted to give back to the community and school district that provided me with an education, guidance, and hope. There was no other district that I wanted to work for. This is my 17th year in the District, and come to Hoover with a wealth of experiences. I was a Kindergarten and First Grade Teacher, Title Resource Teacher, Program Specialist, Literacy Coach, and Assistant Principal. Before arriving to Hoover, I was the Assistant Principal at Willard Intermediate School for two years.

 At Hoover, we believe that, Hoover, ALL Students CAN and WILL learn. I truly believe that our students can accomplish anything they set their minds to, as long as we at Hoover provide them with the experiences, tools, motivation, and desire to achieve. By providing a positive school climate, we can implement a high-quality educational program for our students. We believe that all students have great potential, and it is up to us to pull out the greatest potential in every child. We are committed to ensure that all students attain the 21st Century skills needed, in order to be college and career ready. Our students have the potential to become future teachers, authors, doctors, lawyers, police officer, scientist, or even the president of the United States. With this in mind, we cordially invite you to learn about Herbert Hoover Elementary, and you will see that it is a great place to be.

 I look forward to meeting all of our students, parents, and families. If there is anything I can support you with, please do not hesitate to contact me by email and/or stop by the office.

                                   TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR STUDENTS!




Mr. Armando Gutierrez, Principal
