Looking Back to Move Forward: Rezoning History from 2004 Until Now

Please take some time to read through Hoover’s history with rezoning school boundaries from 2004 until now. It is on its own page in order to allow you to find it quickly.

Riverchase Elementary was the last elementary school built, in 2004. Elementary school zones tend to be the ones that change the most in a growing city like Hoover.

As far as buildings go, the Freshman Campus was the last free-standing building built and was opened in 2007 for 9th graders zoned to Hoover High School. In 2011, the Freshman Campus was converted to Bumpus Middle School for 7th and 8th graders, and the old Bumpus Middle School campus was converted to Brock’s Gap Intermediate School for 5th and 6th graders in the Bumpus Middle School zone.

Since that time, no buildings have been built, though classrooms were added at Hoover High to accommodate growth on the western side of Hoover.

It is important to know how we got here so we can figure out where we need to go.
