Who We Are  

Shades Mountain Elementary is recognized as one of the oldest and most historic elementary schools in the Hoover City Schools system. Nestled within the trees at the top of Shades Mountain, it is a school known for its strong parent and community support and caring, creative faculty.
It is the sense of neighborhood and family along with the pride of being a member of it that makes Shades Mountain special.  It is a place where a child is not considered yours or mine but ours.  Shades Mountain encourages growth in learners of all ages.
