05-Oct-2016 (HCS) - The sale of the “Old Berry” site - the former W.A. Berry High School - was finalized today after months of work among various entities, including the Hoover City Board of Education and the Vestavia Hills Board of Education. We appreciate the collaborative, professional nature with which this transaction was conducted and consider the end result a benefit for all parties.

“We know this historic property will prove important to the Vestavia Hills Board of Education as it works through continued planning and long-range facility development,” Hoover Superintendent Dr. Kathy Murphy said. “As our school system advances, we continue the work of our own long-range planning. Today’s finalized transaction provides another step forward in that process.”

W.A. Berry High School served the Hoover community from 1965-1994. After its use as a high school, the Hoover Board of Education in 1995 converted the site into a middle school (Berry Middle School) which was utilized until 2005, when the new Berry Middle School opened on Jaguar Drive. The “Old Berry” campus was then reconfigured for various functions including the housing of an alternative school program, select district offices, and professional development meeting spaces.
