    My grandson attended kindergarten at Hollyvale the beginning of this school year. He loved the school and his teacher. He looked forward to each school day. Unfortunately he moved. He now attends a school with an API of 900 in the Bay Area of northern California. My grandson is unhappy at this school his mother is as well. His academics and behavior are not an issue he is praised in those areas. Hollyvale was a warm caring and loving place for him. He does not get that at his new school.

    I have 2 children that are attending this school and I am very disappointed. My children previously attended a charter school in Los Angeles where they were consistently being challenged with work that was above grade level. The standards at Hollyvale are so far below my expectations and my children's capabilities that I fear they will become lazy and uninterested in learning. I spoke with one of the teachers and she explained that there are so many restrictions being placed on them by the board that it has become difficult to properly teach. Unfortunately this is more than likely what is negatively impacting their test scores.

    I love Hollyvale! My daughter is a kindergartener this year and I was so worried about her being away from me every day but she has the best teacher and all the staff is very caring. This school appreciates parent involvement and integrates learning in many different ways. The kids seem to have a great day every day!

    I love Hollyvale because the teachers and staff are determined to meet the individual needs of students. Not only do we concentrate on their literacy needs we also show students that we care about them emotionally socially and psychologically. By the end of the day we are all exhausted but determined to do better.

  • (8 years ago)

    Academic programs are ok. Not any extracurricular activities. Many problems with students

  • (8 years ago)

    Mass production level of teaching academic skills. Inadequate/bully attitude. Completely lacks in follow-up and very insensitive. Mass production eductional approach.

  • (9 years ago)

    Parent involvement is encouraged. The school has a great PTC which creates many events and fundraisers that benefit the school. Last year the PTC earned enough money to send every class on a field trip of their choice. Their next goal was to increase the number of computers at school. Academic programs were great...the teachers really care about their students and do everything in their power to help them learn.
