North Hollywood Senior High School Reviews

All Categories
North Hollywood houses many programs which includes Zoo Magnet, Highly Gifted Magnet, SAS(honors), and Home Engineering. Your high school experience will vary on which program you are in. The top academic programs are hands down the Zoo Magnet and Highly gifted magnet. Zoo focuses on science based classes, including animal studies. They are located across the parking lot of the Los Angeles Zoo but students are shuttled to the main campus. Academics are the strongest in the valley but their athletics have left much to be desired. They are mediocre with the exception of girls basketball, tennis, and track and field. Overall, its a pretty decent high school to attend.
Review North Hollywood Senior High School
I liked the fact that the school had a nice amount of students, not overwhelmingly large like some other valley schools, but still large enough to make a student feel like they have endless opportunities to make new friends. I was in the Highly Gifted Magnet program and thought some teachers, such as Mr. Maine and Mrs. Ordona, were absolutely incredible and made me love going to their class everyday. The Magnet program I was in also had some very emotionally, and verbally abusive teachers when I attended, and these teachers and the fact that the administration but no effort to bettering my (and many others) situation made me decide to transfer to another school.
Honestly, the best four years of my life. I was in the music program who has an amazing band director. I was as well on the Academic Decathlon team which was a great experience. About 95% of the teachers and faculty are friendly and are willing to help their students. The student body is very diverse with students from different backgrounds and ethnicity. There are several clubs and teams to be apart of. I was in the marching band, jazz band, symphony orchestra, and Academic Decathlon. The campus is clean the majority of the time. There are several places to go out and eat for lunch.
