Message from the Principal


Dear Hollywood High School Family and Partners-


Welcome Back to School! I know you have many questions in this unusual start of the 2020-2021 school year and I invite you to call the school with any questions at 323-993-1700. Students will be returning virtually on August 18th and we're looking forward to bringing the best possible education to your children that we can imagine and create. We will do our best to communicate with our community through monthly Coffee With The Principal, Blackboard Connect messages and soon to come videos posted on our website. 


Hollywood High School is a beautiful school steeped in important history that we must protect and sustain. I’m looking forward to seeing all the great work that our students will show us in each of the wonderful small learning communities: the Performing Arts Magnet, Teaching Career Academy, School for Advanced Studies and the New Media Magnet. As a team, we will continue to guide our students to become:


  • Effective Communicators who foster social justice
  • Life-long learners and responsible community partners
  • Critical Thinkers applying real world experiences
  • Aware of diversity with equal access and equal opportunity
  • Successful users of technology prepared for the work force
  • College and Career Ready


Please attend our School Site Council and School Based Management meetings and say hello. Also, please attend as many of the incredible productions that you can. Our students are extremely talented and they work so hard to be the best that they can be. Come support the arts! My number one issue is safety and we need to make sure all students, faculty and staff feel safe on our campus. Next is instruction. I want to make sure all of our students are prepared to enter the college or career that benefits them the most.

I agree with Hollywood High School’s slogan “Achieve the Honorable”. That is my goal!


All My Best-

Dr. Mary Reid
