About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Hollywood Academy of Arts & Science's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Hollywood Academy of Arts & Science had 17 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Hollywood Academy of Arts & Science Reviews
Love my school.
I am upset with all of the negative comments! Hollywood Academy of Arts and Science has to be the best school in Florida, believe me, I have been to so many! Right now, I am in the NJHS and I have straight A's and good FCAT and benchmark scores! This school is amazing with academics, but very strict with behavior. We go by merits, every week if you do not follow the rules, you get demerits. If you are well behaved, you gain merits every week! After every 10 weeks, we get a merit reward day! There is a group A, B,C and D the a group is people with no demerits, group b is with people who have little demerits, and group c is the people with demerits, and group d is the people who get the most demerits, detentions and referrals. Group a gets pizza and a movie, group b just gets a movie and ice cream, group c gets ice cream and work, and group d just gets work. Overall, I love this school and the teachers and students. I am proud to go to HAAS!
My Rating on HAAS
I go to HAAS and I think it's pretty good. This school is actually good, but there are some negatives with the school. One problem is that I've been bullied almost every year of school (and even now I'm still kind of but only by one person). They say it's a bully free school but they don't do anything to bullies except talk to them and then that's that. My parents tell me that they are treating us like college kids because of all the homework and projects we get. Some of the teachers are very strict or don't teach correctly, but some of them are actually very great. I have been there since kindergarten and still have some friends from my first year, but many left for other schools because of some problems with the school. But there are some positives. My friends are so awesome, I have some great teachers, I learn a lot, and I am a lot more advanced then some of my friends. Overall I rate my school 4 stars
The school must do something about bullies that is unacceptable why are they afraid to face the parents of the bullies. Durning my volunteer time I couldnt believe how many children were scared. please HAAS do something about it I beg of you don't let it be too late.
I am reading some if these reviews and completely shocked. That is of the good reviews. I have 2 children that go to the school and presentation wise that school look a great, but academically they do not challenge the students and dont care about and treat the students that give a lil trouble like their felons. The staff in one particular named Trudy are very rude and speak to people like they are better than you. I pulled my daughter out of a public school so she can go to HAAS and t really regret it. This is the last year they will be attending. Its ashame when a school treats children this way and to have staff that acts like this is extremely wrong 3 of 5 employees will be rude the other 2 will at clueless. Just sad. From one parent to another donot send your child here.
Compared to other schools in the area, HAAS is 5 stars. The teachers care about the students and parents participation is strongly encouraged. The SIS system is a great tool that helps you accurately track your child's progress. If you see a problem you can contact the teacher and you will receive a response usually within 24 hours and sometimes less than that. HAAS wants your child to succeed and they do their best to give each student the confidence and tools to do so. They have activities all throughout year and for 7th and 8th graders they offer international summer trips. My daughter just returned last night from a 10 day trip throughout Europe. She travelled through 4 different countries with her Geography teacher by her side, giving her and her fellow classmates a chance to really see all those things they had learned about during the year, up close and in person. I don't know of any other middle school that gives students the opportunity for a life changing experience like that.
This school is mediocre to me. The student to teacher ratio is very incorrect. My child has about 25 students in the class and it has always been like that every year. Also, it states that the school is K-5 which is incorrect because it is K-8.
The principle is reasonable but some of the front desk woman that greet the kids as you enter the school are very impolite and tend to gossip openly in front of the children.
One of my favorite things about the school is that they have a website you can go on daily to check your child’s grades. It allows you to see the scores on each and every assignment your child has taken, pinpoints and breakdowns what in the assignment your child has gotten incorrect and shows what area they need to study harder on.
I love this school. They give the children a sense of pride and community. Each child is spoken to as an individual and my son tells me that he finally found a school that makes him feel good! Yes, they may not have a beautiful classroom with state of the art materials but they CARE and spend quality time TEACHING the kids. I dont know about you but isnt that the most important?!
17;1 teacher ratio is NOT true. Each class has 26 students regardless of age or grade
WORST SCHOOL EVER! My son told me so i went to see for my self in one of there tours and it was very low budget. The kids look like they are 16. I give it a 3.
This school was great when i went to it.I made a lot of friends .The teacher, students, and the vic principal ,also the principal was all so nice.It was hard for me to leave and go to a different school but i will always love this school
I believe this school is really great heard a lot of positive things.
