From the Dean
Welcome to the 2020/2021 school year. Once again, I am privileged to be assigned as the Dean of students. This year's theme is “Unite and be a Light”, I am hoping to be a light to all our students guiding them towards a bright future at Hollywood Hills High School and beyond. Working with our students to help mold them both academically and socially into productive citizens of our community.
I aim to serve all our families providing equitable opportunities for all. I stand firm on having an open-door policy where everyone is welcomed. Even during these unprecedented times all indicators of success for our school are on the rise and I am looking forward to sharing another great year with each of you.
Please feel free to contact my office at 754-323-1094 with any questions or concerns, or you may also access an electronic version of the Broward County Public School Student Conduct Book by clicking the link on this page.
