Having being at this school for 4 years now, I can say Hollister has made my high school adventures enjoyable. They really know how to connect students not only with each other but with the community. The teachers here are absolutely amazing, they are so helpful and always strive to see the best in all of their students.

The teachers at this school are fantastic! They are all extremely friendly and willing to help you at anytime. If you are having trouble in the class they insist that you come talk to them first and do whatever possible to raise your grade before dropping the class. I feel that every teacher I have had genuinely cares about the students in their class and their student's success. Most teaching styles are Power Point presentations but almost all are constant note taking (some making it more fun than others). All the teachers I have had are great about getting back to me outside of the classroom through e-mail. They are all very knowledgeable in what they teach and consistent with grading. I honestly have nothing bad to say about any of the teachers that I have had the past two semesters at OTC.
They offer a lot of help to families with free/reduced lunch. The buildings are very secure; all doors are only accessible with a teacher/administrator/staff card, and we regularly practice fire, tornado, intruder alerts, etc. Our lunches could be better, but I commend the lunch ladies for doing the best with they have. We only have one school nurse for the jr. High and high school, and she only stays at each building for half the day; same goes for the nurse that goes from the early childhood scool to the elementary. Bullying rapidly escalated about 2 years ago, so the school created a bully hotline that you can call/text to anonymously, as well as an email account. The administration was very serious about the changes that were being made and we even had a hug assembly about bullying/anti-bullying, trying to spread awareness. I wish they would conduct more drug tests though, because there's a lot of kids who could use the help, versus just being "suspended from the football team".
