My son is in 1st grade this year. It is his second year at Hollywood Central Elementary. I was very nervous sending him to public school, being a product of private school my entire life. But as a single mom, I didn't have many other choices. I can honestly say that I am very pleased with the school's teachers and administration. My son actually looks forward to going to school. I'd definitely recommend this 'A' school.
It is only the second day of school, but so far it has been a great experience. Everyone is so organize. I have high expectations for the year!
This school has a great teachers and staff. The PTA is wonderful and I would highly recommend it.
A great open campus and a warm and friendly staff. As in most schools, the education is as good as your child's teacher. HCE has its share of fine teachers; you just have to seek them out.
My daughter's first grade experience here was really great... she had an amazing teacher who was able to reach out to each child individually!
Excellent school, loving teachers, good administrative staff, my son is happy in this school
Excellent school, good teachers, good administrative staff, my daugther is happy in this school
The school is excelent, they provide everything for my son, he learned a lot, he reads very well, he has a lot of activities por every holiday.
Both my daughter and my son attend HCE. I am very happy with HCE overall care of my children both academically, mentally, emotionally, physically. HCE isn't just school, it's family. I can always speak with the teachers, principal or any one without a hassle. At HCE, the PTA is top notch with the fundraisers. They get the children motivated by having school mega parties. The teacher and administration involvement with the students are great. I enjoy volunteering whenever I get the chance. I most pleased and can't wait to have my youngest daughter to join the HCE Family next year!
A wonderful nurturing school with teachers and staff that truly care about each and every child's welfare. I have a child in fifth grade and I feel he is receiving an excellent education. I also had three older children that attended Hollywood Central and the early education they received prepared them for success in later grades as they went on to advanced and honor classes in Middle and High School and now in college. Hollywood Central is a school of quality in every way.
The math curriculum needs to be improved. Other kids from other schools out west are doing more advanced math.
The school needs to have more creative teaching. The principal asks why is Virginia Shuman Montessori school accepting so many transfer students from Hollywood Central. Instead, the principal should be asking why are the parents taking their kids out of Hollywood Central. She needs to focus on making Hollywood Central a better school and parents will no longer take their kids to other schools. We want to send our kids to the neighborhood school but unfortunately, the education at Hollywood Central is not up to par with other good schools such as Virginia Shuman Montessori.
Both my children have gone to Hollywood Central since they were 5yrs. My daughter is now in 5th grade and my son in 4th grade. I wish I can find a middle school for my daughter like this one. I have never had a problem with the school, the teachers are very nice, and the staff is great. My kids are very happy to go to Hollywood Central.
