Being in Hollywood High is a much different experience you'd ever imagine having considering the name, but i feel as if that i consider all the factors within my school, i like it. I personally feel like the environment is different from various schools, only because the atmosphere is different. Hollywood High has a grown-up ¨realness¨ effect of being in Hollywood. You are surrounded by only growth from learning to do things yourself and honestly. The environment had a lot of resources filled with fun places to go, political and Hollywood events/experiences, and many abilities to grow as a person if you look for it in the right places.

Academically, there is a variety of classes offered apart from the mandatory classes, which is great to explore different career options. There is dance, culinary arts, and AP classes. The teachers and administrators are very friendly and are involved in many activities. There are extra curricular activities such as band, sports, and volunteering clubs, but there can be more. Previously, the number of restrooms available to use were very limited to the whole school, but the cause of this choice was the example of some students misbehaving. Other than that, this is a very good school.
I went to the SAS program at Hollywood and it served as a great stepping stone for my current college career. The majority of the faculty at Hollywood encourage higher education and always push the students to strive for it. Despite the mediocre teachers that one has to deal with at times, nothing is impossible without a little bit of tenacity and grit. Hollywood has provided the tools necessary despite it’s seeming lack of funds and has allowed me to continue to thrive in a competitive college environment. I’m keeping up with peers who went to elite private high schools and I owe it to the overwhelming support and push of the wonderful SAS teachers.
