In January, Hollywood Schoolhouse commemorated its 70th anniversary with a Town Hall Meeting and Open House for students, parents, alumni, prospective families, and more. Joined by Los Angeles City Councilmember, David Ryu, event guests honored Hollywood Schoolhouse’s founders and celebrated seventy years worth of campus and program transformations.
With its humble Hollywood beginnings dating back to 1945 as the Small Fry Nursery School, Hollywood Schoolhouse has since grown to house 300 students (Preschool through Sixth Grade) who matriculate on to Los Angeles’ top independent, secondary schools. The mission of the Schoolhouse is to nurture the whole child within a diverse community, combining challenging academics with creative learning, where each child is known, encouraged, and valued.
Saturday’s event showcased new construction on campus – with tours of the school’s new building, set to open in the next few months. The theme of the day seemed to be that the more things change, the more they stay the same, as the event also highlighted the consistency of the school’s commitment to academic exploration, civic engagement, and diversity throughout the years.
