Riverchase Middle School Property

25-Sept-207 (HCS) - As a growing school system, our needs continue to evolve. You may be aware that our school system is in the process of purchasing the former Riverchase Middle School from Pelham City Schools. This is an excellent facility surrounded by Hoover; it offers many opportunities as we plan for future growth and new opportunities for our students.

Some ideas have already come forward, including the possibility of having that campus become an additional elementary school for Hoover. Though that option is not feasible for a number of reasons, we do know the Riverchase MS property has great value with regard to our needs at the secondary level. An idea with a great deal of momentum is using the facility to offer career training in skilled trades in combination with other specialized high school programs.

Now we need to hear from you.

We have scheduled two community meetings to gather ideas you may have:

Tuesday, September 26th from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Hoover High School cafeteria
Tuesday, October 3rd from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Spain Park High School cafeteria

The meetings will include a short presentation from Hoover City Schools administrators and community business partners, and then a panel will listen to your thoughts and respond to questions from audience members.

If you would like an opportunity to see the campus before these meetings, we will be offering tours from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on the Saturday before each community meeting (Sept 23 and 30). The address of the property is 853 Willow Oak Drive in the Riverchase community. Please be aware that the interior of the building has not been cleaned and there is stacked furniture throughout the hallways. Small children should not enter the building at this time, and restrooms will not be supplied.

We value your input as we map out the future for our students!
