I have been homeschooled all my life up until 9th grade. I went to Hollister High School and could ask for nothing more. Everyone was nice and accepted me right into the school. The teachers and staff were quick to help if I ever had a problem. One of my friends was being bullied and I took it to the counselor and she took care of it immediately and very effectively. I love this school and all the people there, I will never leave.

The people at this school during my time here are not the people I wished to grow up with. So many friends of mine moved because of the bullying. The staff pretend they are going to stop it but don't. Also, the pecking order of society in this school is very corrupt.

I am a former student of hollister. I had lived in the community all of my life. The school was wonderful and I would have recommended it to anyone who would have ask, but in the last few years it has changed. I no longer hold my opinion to be true. I have since moved and I now see how things should have been and how they are in other schools. The entire system is very corrupt. It is set up to where if you know someone or are related to someone then you get what you want and if you do not know someone, then you do not get any privilages. The quality of academics has went down due to lack of caring among the teachers. I am not saying that all teachers at Hollister are this way, but many of them are. They go to a job for a paycheck and they do not care wheather or not the students understands the material. I will not name names, but as a former student, I had two very uncaring math teachers. This was my hardest subject in high school and they simply did not care if I made it through or not. However, I did out of three math teachers have a very wonderful one. Another real problem among teachers is the fact they have to suck up or get fired. I had the most wonderful English teacher I have ever had in my life and 6 weeks before school let out they fired her because of her opions and the fact that a few students wanted her fired. There was in my opinion no reason to fire her the last 6 weeks of school. They replaced her in these last 6 weeks and the new teacher was completely lost in the studies. We did resume`s the rest of the year, which had nothing to do with British literature. Every year, from 9th grade to 12th, I had a new literature teacher. They replace teachers like a person changes socks. It is not a steady enviorment for children of any age. They simply fire you becuase of politics or the fact you have a different opinion as someone else or a different way of teaching. The high school principle and now vice superintendent would fire based on if he liked you, not based on how well you do your job. They replace older, well experienced teachers, with right out of college students. The teacher that replaced our Literature teacher, hadn't even graduated college yet. She graduated college the same day that I graduated high school.The availibility of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities progressing. Music and Art programs are very underfounded compared to that of sports. This may be due to the lack of respect for those progams. There were many in the school staff that had never went to a band or chior concert but, somehow knew that the band and chior was not good enough for them. This is not true, both have excelled in recent years. I know because I was apart of the band program for many years. I have seen great change and as years go on it will keep excelling, inless the school continuely cuts the programs budget because the sports need more money. I do not believe they need more money, I believe strongly that they are doing just fine. I witnessed one year the coach buying a small expensive microphone because they had extra money and they had to spend it or loose it. This is also not a school for people who are looking for a football program because the school does not have one. As far as extracurricular activities go, they also lack on school funding. This is especially true in the drama and art programs. They seem to emphsize athletic awards more than any other awards, including academic, music, art, drama, attendance and any thing other than sports. There was a student that I know very well that recieved a computer for perfect attendence for all 13 years of school. This seems great but it was to be a computer with all the "bells and whisles". They got it home and found out how basic it really was. It didn't even have speakers or a phone internet hook up. It was probably the cheapest they could buy. They mad such a big deal about it and said it was going to be a wonderful computer but it wasn't. They said it on stage at the graduation, in front of probably 300 to 400 guests. They did this to just look good and it really had no value at all.I will say one great thing about the school. The facilities are wonderful and very clean and new. The high school building has been used for a year and a half now. It is a very nice building. The only thing that I disaprove of is that it has many cameras placed throughout the school. They are even in classrooms. It was also rumored by many that the bathrooms were bugged with listening devices. I believe this to be true. The staff is very noisy in the personal lives of the students. It's a bit invasive. This will be the fun section of this review becuase it would have to be the worst part of it. The level of parent involvement is very low. This is mainly due to the fact that if a parent has a problem, then they are shut out. If they have a problem with the higher up staff memeber and they began to argue at all about the problem ,they will get thrown out by police men. It has happended many times. This may also happen on simple disagreements. If you push to hard on an issue your child will be punished or accused of stuff that was never done. They have radom drug testings that I believe not to be so random. If they have a feeling of something or the parent has said something offensive then your child is subject to a drug test. If they find a student to be suspious, they will try to drug test them. They do drug tests on any extracurricular activity that your child may be envolved in. At the beginning of the year it is manditory for all who participate in those activities.
