This school is okay. But i do agree that they only accept students with good grade.

the only reason I put 1 star is because I have to. This has to be one of the worst schools in California. You parents should really think before you enroll them here. My kids would be better off being homeschooled. I mean I could seriously teach them more then these people do. I decided to take them ...  Read more

Hollencrest is a great school. the teachers are always helpful an they are more than willing to give a student extra help if they ask for it.

The principal and staff only care about the achievers at this school and nothing more...they will drop a student who is an under achiever in a heart beat to save thier precious rating...parent beware: school only wants over achievers

I think this will be a better year for the entire school. As far as communication, ask your kid what they were given at school, if they're like my boy, I have to check his backpack or call the school if I want to know about a certain event. As for the 8th graders, they are given a 'contract' you and ...  Read more

Since Hollencrest has new principal in 2008 school year, the communication to the parents got much less. Previous years when Mrs. Granger was principal, my child brought home school activity table monthly plus flyers often to keep parents aware what s going on at school. It is all disappeared with ...  Read more

I am extremely disapointed with the Assistant Principal and Principal of this school. May daughter was a 6th grader last year. I had several concerns all which I discussed with both principals to no avail. What a waste of our tax dollars and students future.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
