Welcome from the ceo
Student success comes from student engagement and commitment.
One of the most powerful dynamics for full student engagement in recent education trends is the integration of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) into the curriculum. The education world is abuzz with news of ICT programs being added to many schools’ curricula. The understanding that an addition of ICT has a positive outcome on all subjects is surely a welcome development.
At Hollywood School, however, we’ve also over the years elevated the arts and built our curriculum around it. Our school was built from the ground up on the conviction that the considered and expert integration of the creative and performing arts into every aspect of our school’s ethos and operations would create a learning environment where students would master academic subjects while working collaboratively, thinking critically, and responding creatively.
When my father started Hollyood in 1989, he embraced this approach based on the belief that a single, one-size-fits-all approach to learning and teaching is self-defeating. He paid particular attention to English and used same as a catalyst to all round academic excellence. We are committed to providing all students with the skills and experiences necessary for them to develop and begin realizing their personal goals and scholastic objectives, as well as to become contributing members of our communities.
The School’s emphasis on creative inquiry, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary collaboration equips students with the skills that are crucial to successfully navigate our complex and challenging world. Hollywood School is community oriented. The only ofbit kind with a close relationship with the traditional authority of our land. Indeed the Omanhen of Edina is represented on our Board of Governors. We have served our community well over decades and inspired the growth of private school community in our region. We continue to lead and remain the private school of choice.
