My daughter attends their VPK program and I have been extremely pleased with our experience. She has Mrs. Martinez, who is kind and firm. I'm very satisfied with the communication this school (emails to the teacher, front office, etc). They also give you an extra hour of the VPK program free of charge (my daughter attends 8am-12pm).
One thing that was also big for me was not getting tied into a ton of extra events and fundraising. There is minimal events (they do a Christmas program and you're welcome to volunteer at class parties) and the fundraising has been very minimal (compared to other parents I have talked to who have their children elsewhere). Everyone I've met there is good natured and happy to help. My daughter has learned so much this year and is having a blast doing it. Thank you, HCS (and especially Mrs. Martinez) for being so awesome!
Thank goodness that headmaster resigned.She caused so much turmoil for my daughter. She would not allow the very willing teachers to help my daughter, siting school policy that no one could find in writing anywhere. Yet, she allowed and paid for the student-athletes to get the assistance we were asking for with our daughter.Whenever we asked for the policy or why athletes could get the help and not our daughter, she was dismissive and rude.We pulled our daughter 2 years ago, but she still has nightmares about the headmaster.I hope they replace her with a sincere Christian that cares about the students, more than her persona.
School just wants $ $ $..... their priority isn't the kids learning. Lots of unnecessary homework every day. My kid is afraid of that place. He would freeze during meetings after seeing the teachers. He begs me not to take him back there again. The previous year he got a B honor roll award, so hope you get lucky and get a decent teacher. I'm not gambling again. It's also funny to see some 5 star reviews that are so blatantly clear written by themselves.
All three of my daughters have attended this school and I am very happy. The school has a very loving but disciplined atmosphere, and the academics are excellent. Dr. Robinson has done an excellent job of ensuring excellent academics. The school makes use of technology, hands on activities and cooperative learning throughout. The sports department has also been a blessing to our family as all our girls have been involved.
My husband graduated from this school, and we now send our children here. Our children have grown so much educationally, and the teachers genuinely love them. Education for our children is one of the most important investments we will ever make, and we highly recommend Hollywood Christian School for this purpose.
It has been a blessing to be surrounded by staff who strive to provide the best education possible for the young people of our community. They genuinely care for the future of every single student here, and they want nothing more than to thoroughly equip them with the wisdom and knowledge to be able to prosper beyond their years here.
Our family loves this school. We are very impressed with the academic progress our children have made since attending here. The curriculum is so thorough and seems perfectly paced. Most importantly, we feel confident that our children are loved and safe. Having our children here has very clearly been an excellent and worthy investment.
Hollywood Christian School is a great school that offers a biblical world view with a college preparatory mindset. I have three children who attended and they were taught such great academic skills and content that they all did great in college and beyond. I highly recommend this school.
I as a HCS student haave been attending this school since 4-k I think that it is a marvelous school! I do not agree that THIS school "Obligates" you to pay for things. Its a mattet of participation! We do fundrasing for good causes to help,to see people smile! I believe as Christians that we are! HELP others because sometimes its not about "give me" its all about love and I think that is a fantastic thing. We work hard but together we always make it! You feel God through the environment! It's a really good feeling that once you're in the school theres no going outside obly for recess or Physical education. Other then that our school has good security tech which is really good! You won't know if you like something if you haven't tried. We have few students, Yes we know that but I think thats a huge BENEFIT more attention to us instead of like 54 in a class. Ias a student of HCS thank God for all he has been doing here for our biggest upcoming changes and etc. Yes and I read a review and YES this school helps you financially. Hey and whats the biggy for paying a few buck extra to see perform us students? Like I said its a matter of participation! That's what we do to help.
