A Word From Admissions

Welcome to Hollywood Schoolhouse!
I am honored to welcome you to our school, where we believe that children need to know who they are and how they learn in order to become exceptional citizens. Every day I enter these doors to a place where critical thinkers and creative learners thrive. Having spent over 13 years working at Hollywood Schoolhouse, I continue to be amazed and inspired by what a true learning community feels like. I have heard it time and time again, “there is a magic here”, and I always reply, “because this is a place where children live.”

Interesting Facts

Our History

Hollywood Schoolhouse was established in 1945 as the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse by Ruth Pease in response to the country’s request to help meet the childcare needs of the post-war community. Ruth grew up in an environment where she was the subject of prejudice and social exclusion, so from the beginning she envisioned a school where all children were accepted, loved, and welcomed for who they are as individuals.
