A More Structured Alternative to Elementary Education in the Palo Alto Unified School District.

Herbert Hoover Elementary School places primary emphasis on a core curriculum, stressing basic academic skills and good study habits. The school seeks to build within each child a sense of responsibility, confidence, pride in accomplishment, and a positive self-image through academic achievement. Toward this end, the school provides the quiet and orderly environment many children need to learn.


Welcome to the School Year 2013-2014!

  • A few words from our Principal, Mrs. Bimpson.
  • The PiE fundraising campaign ends next Friday, January 31. If you have already given, thank you so much for supporting important programs like aides, science, counseling and the arts. If not, please give to PiE during the "Every Gift Matters" campaign finale. Generous donors will match your gift dollar for dollar through January 31, up to a total of $175,000 for PiE. PiE funds provide well over half of the flexible spending at our school, and we could not offer your children the quality education we have without your support of PiE. Please join the 3800 families who have already given and take advantage of this last challenge grant to help PiE reach its goal of $5 Million in support and enrichment funds for all PAUSD students.
