About Our School

Hoover Elementary School is part of the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. Our school is physically located in city of New Berlin. However, we serve students from both the city of New Berlin and the city of West Allis. Hoover has been providing high quality education to students in kindergarten through 5th grade for over fifty years.  

At Hoover Elementary School, we have a strong sense of community.  We strive to help students learn how to use their hearts and minds well.  We come together weekly as a school and discuss what it means to use your heart and mind well in different situations and places during our Community Gatherings and FLAG Family meetings.  By implementing Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS), we are able to address the importance of being respectful, responsible and safe in our community.

As a staff we work together to implement District learning initiatives and put the best instructional strategies into practice.

Hoover has a strong fine arts program.  All students participate in music, art, and physical education on a regular basis.  Students in kindergarten through second grade are able to participate in Suzuki.  Orchestra and Chorus are available for students in third grade through fifth grade. Band is available for students in fifth grade.  These groups have lessons and performance opportunities for the students involved.

Outside of the classroom we have other educational supports for students. We offer an after school program at Hoover and at the Morgan Grove Family Center. Students are able to extend learning outside of the school day with individuals and small groups of students. We also offer other activities such as Chorus, Orchestra, Violin, Viola and Cello Prelude, Chess Club, Girls on the Run, and Technology Club.  

Hoover’s community includes a strong PTA. These volunteers plan and conduct fun learning activities such as the Color Run, High Interest Day, Reading Carnival and holiday social activities. They host a Book Fair twice a year and provide direct support of school programs and goals through fundraising. Families are encouraged to volunteer and support the Hoover community through their participation.


We look forward to meeting you and your child as you select a school.  We believe that strong schools and strong families build outstanding communities.  Please feel free to contact Hoover Elementary School at (414) 604-3800.
