Diversity & Inclusion

Best Buddies Program

Hoover Middle School promotes diversity and inclusion through participation in the Best Buddies One-to-One Friendships Program.

BESTBUDDIES® builds one-to-one friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), through school and community friendship programs that provide socialization opportunities to help erase the invisible line that often separates students or adults with and without IDD. Friendship programs include Best Buddies Middle Schools, High Schools, Colleges, Citizens, and e-Buddies.

Learn more at the Best Buddies website.


Best Buddies meetings are held twice a month.
