About Mr. Hoke

 I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people in the world to work at Del Oro High School. Not only do I have the privilege of working with some of the most brilliant people in the field of education, but I am also part of one big family which includes students as well as colleagues. Here, in the nest of the Golden Eagles, there is an air of camaraderie built on mutual respect for each individual and genuine concern for others well- being. This unique culture is why my daughter is attending this school; in order to become part of something great.
