Para mi, Hollibrook es la mejor escuela que mis hijos an atendido. Cuando llego a la escuela me siento bienvenida. Me siento orgullosa de ser parte de esta escuela
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 30, 2013

Extremely rude administration, immature staff and unprofessional behavior. I personally know the administration assesses teachers based on how they like them. There have been several exceptional teachers at this school who have been given bad evaluations by the principal (even when they evaluated exceptional lessons) because they did not like them. If you want to know why they don't make AYP and why their test scores are so low it is because of that. Ask them why they don't make AYP year after year, after year. This school is a pathway for the administration to have their own fraternity/sorority. The school is not about the kids or education; it's about what feelings the administration (based upon likeability) has for a teacher.

Unwelcoming front staff and administration. Several classes need behavior intervention, to allow other students in class to learn without constant disruptions.
