Read what parents are saying about Hollywood Senior High School
I regret sending my child here. The administration particularly is slowly eliminating anything positive like sports programs. Read the article in the LA Times about having all coaches reapplying for their positions, successful and not. A disgrace.

I did not like my experience here academically. The students are highly unmotivated to learn and disrespectful. The only great thing about this school is the musical theatre program. Many dedicated, passionate and hardworking students participate in the musical production. There is still some drama involved in it though, and the Performing Arts Magnet is full of students who don't care about the performing arts. There are some, but they are far and few. The School for Advanced Studies is a bit better academically, but still the students are disrespectful and chatty. I DO NOT recommend this school.

Hollywood High is amazing! I am in the School for Advanced Studies at Hollywood and my teachers are all great, they care and treat you like a human. As well as having an amazing SAS program Hollywood also has an OUTSTANDING Performing Arts Magnet. I was blown away the first time I saw students from PAM performing because they truly are amazing and their instructors and choreographers are genius's. I've said all these amazing things about my school, but I haven't even said anything about the counselors yet! Everyone is great, but by far the most amazing person is Mrs. Brown. Not only is she the SAS counselor, but also the College counselor, the 9/10th grade counselor and someone who will respond to you and doesn't just disregard your concerns. I've met plenty of counselors who you have to hunt down to get a concern in and then still worry if it's actually going to be taken care of, but I can promise you that won't be the case at Hollywood. We have Extraordinary SAS, Outstanding PAM, Amazing administration and to too it all off; there is so much school spirit, enthusiasm and every student I have seen at Hollywood is an individual. Can you find a better high school?

I am now a 10th grader here and i am loving it. I had to transfer from my last school (terrible). Anyways, this school has by far the best PAM program which are for the preforming arts which i attend. This program attaches to the best dances, music, acting, and singing courses. For dance ask for Mrs.Goldschein for acting Mrs.Bridges for singing Mr.Sexton for Music Mrs. Hall all teachers are loving and caring. Myself I'm an Opera Singer in training and by most this school is diverse and loving much to look forward to.

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.
