    Hollywood High School Performing Arts Magnet is one of the best magnets in the city with its amazing staff of talented teachers and directors and its rigorous academic classes. Our school can proudly claim many Ph.d's from Stanford and other highly regarded universities and teachers with professional experience in top ranked industries. The school is cozy and intimate with a small student to teacher ratio which insures a great deal of individual attention and care for the individual. This is a school with a long and astounding legacy - Judy Garland and Carol Burnett walked its halls along with great luminaries in law and politics such as Warren Christopher. Today we are still preparing future great leaders of the world for many of our students go on to prestigious universities such as Berkeley New York University and U.C.L.A. Hollywood is a school where one can truly receive a great education.

    I admire very much the Magnet Program and especially the arts part. Those teachers involved in Performing Arts are excellent they put heart and soul in it. I have a big admiration for their hard work which reflects in the shows the students perform. Good job.

    This school is small and boring and full of lies from staff and doesnt give you the oppurtunity you want.

    Many teachers here are good. Some are outstanding. Performances are second to none and are better than most if not all private schools of this genre. Administration performance is less than stellar. More Performing Arts students would be much better served by having a new counselor. There is no in-campus parking available for parents. Beware of parking on some streets outside of the school or you'll get a ticket. This school would have gotten 4 stars if some in the the administration was more "energetic" about their jobs. . . . . .

    That school is horrible. Itransfered to that school last year and on my first day i had to go get a tardy pass. My counsler gave me wrong classes and didnt even know what the classes i had are. he was asking what 1 class was cuz he never heard of it and thout Physical science was PE. The school is dirty too.

    Hollywood HS is one of the best high schools in LAUSD. My two daughters both graduated in the past two years and are successfully enrolled in 4-year universities. Thank you to all of the teachers!

    although many ap classes are available and the counselors are great. the school isnt all that great. the best program would be sas because the other slcs dont require as much work. the pam program for example is full of students who are only being taught dancing and singing as the top priority. i say that because the other classes dont require RIGOR. theyre grades are low and the teachers arent setting high standards.

    Hollywood High is a school that lives up to its standards. This is my third year here and all of the staff and students want everyone to achieve greatness. We are given opportunities that we may not be given elsewhere to strive to our full potential. Our teachers emphasis hard work and commitment to finish assignments when they are due and our counselor's are friendly and inspiring. Being a Hollywood High student is an honor for me because I feel comfortable and confident that I as well as my fellow peers will succeed to limits we never thought were able to be reached. The School for Advanced Studies is an excellent rigorous SLC here at Hollywood that allows many students to show off their strengths in ways that benefit the school. PAM HNAS MET and many more at Hollywood give a aura of great minds to strive.

    This is an excellent institution of education and it only gets better. There is never a dull moment and the counselors are always helpful. No matter what grade one is there is a level of respect enjoyed by everyone.

    Hollywood HIgh School is a very good school. Although in the distant past ( around the time of the 2007 alumni review) the school did struggle with many problems that plauge inner city schools it has grown into a excellant school. Hollywood High has changed from a multi track school( as it was in 2007) to a tradional calender with a very small student body of only 1 700 students. Gone are the days of 3 000 plus students who do not know each other or theere teachers. Now we have small learning communities with theme based learning. One of those small learning communites is the School for Advanced Studies which is the biggest school program on campus and has 537 honors and Advanced Placement students. We have almost no violence and we are known for our friendly and polite campus. Hollywood High School API is 729 which is the top high school in local district four and tip 12 in all of LAUSD including charters and Magnets. We have a wide variety of well funded sports clubs yearbook newpaper and student goverment.

    My daughter attended HHS for her freshman year and LOVED it. The SAS program is wonderful and from what I saw going on in the other "learning communities" amazing. The staff is supportive of the kids and communicative with the parents. Even PDA is admonished! Surprising for a public high school campus! The kids are generally very respectful to each other and the adults. I spent the past 10 years trying to figure out how I was going to be able to afford avoiding sending my child here because I had heard about all the racial issues and it couldn't have been further from the truth So hard in fact that the engine was already moving for her to be in a "top rated" small town school which we're at now and she's miserable. The academics are no better but she misses the diversity and the openness of the social environment. It may not be the richest school in town but I have to say its probably the sweetest.

    There are actually a lot of racial issues at this school I am an Alumni of the school (graduated in the year of 2007) and I have seen bad issues that were never brought up. There was a huge racial fight in the school while I was attending some teachers are good the magnet program was great. However the drive to succeed within the students are extremely low. It is pretty much full of many aspiring actors actresses and singer but they cease to understand the importance of an education to back that up. Grades are horrible.

    It has many different small learning communites! Theres Teaching career academy for students who want to be future teachers. That academy even offers a chance to tutor second grade kids at a nearby elementary school which gives them practice for the future! It has Performing Arts which offers dance theatre and singing. They perform many high quality plays. The Media and Technology small learning community offers computer classes and chances to make high quality videos for the school's website. Theres also Health Nutrition Arts and Science which offers a variety of cooking classes and education about nutrition. And finally theres School for Advanced Studies which offers Honors classes for gifted students who need more of a challenge academically.

    Hollywood HS has the best performing arts magnet program in LA! The teachers and staff are fully committed to making it the best for their students. Our son travels by bus and subway each day to get to school-he wakes up every day looking forward to going.
