Welcome to World Famous Hollywood High School!

The Hollywood High School family would like to thank you for trusting us with your child’s education. Our school is engaged in a continuous cycle of improvement of its programs to ensure that we offer you the most relevant and current educational experience available in this great city. Our educational commitment is to build capacity and increase collaboration among our staff members considering the positive impact that this approach will have in academic excellence. The backbone of our institution is to create interdependence with our industry partners, post secondary institutions and the rich and vibrant Hollywood community.

I would also like to share the Hollywood High School tenets that drive our everyday actions:

Our Vision: To “Achieve the Honorable” Hollywood High School empowers students to optimize their potential while respecting individual needs and producing intellectual and ethical participants in a diverse society.

Our Mission: It is the mission of our school to provide every student with a challenging education that promotes lifelong learning and prepares students to achieve success and thrive in a global community.

Our Expected Schoolwide Learning Results: We envision a quality instructional program that will prepare students to be effective communicators and critical thinkers.

We believe that…

  • All children want to learn and succeed.
  • Everybody has the innate desire to learn, discover, and apply.
  • If all teachers provide the tools to learn, students will achieve.
  • All students are capable of making meaningful contributions to our society.
  • The development of interdisciplinary inquiry skills is important.
  • Comparing cultures and teaching tolerance are an integral part of a modern, global education.
  • All stakeholders are invested in academic success.
  • A meaningful curriculum makes the difference.
  • Empowering students to believe that they have the ability to become successful participants in a
  • global society is of the utmost importance.

We deeply appreciate the energy, commitment and hard work you bring to this next stage of your child’s educational experience. Thank you for being our partners. We look forward to an engaging and fulfilling school year!
