Welcome, Pelican Families, to Hollywood Beach School! We are a small and diverse school in a beautiful beach community, providing a rigorous Kindergarten through Sixth Grade education and a welcoming, caring school family for generations of students.

Hollywood Beach School provides a wonderful and unique setting for student learning and growth. Our small size, with less than 300 students, means your child will be known, seen and appreciated for who they are. This intimate setting allows us to meet your child where they are and support and accelerate their growth and learning

Here’s what you’ll find at Hollywood Beach:

  • Our experienced, caring and dedicated staff goes above and beyond to support our students and communicate with families as partners in your child’s learning. 

  • We offer a rigorous education for the whole child

    • all traditional academic areas are supported through integrated units and project-based learning and STEM; we provide an exciting and challenging GATE program; additional support is provided by positive, caring staff to accelerate learning.

    • We provide social-emotional learning that dovetails with academics, along with our kind and caring school counselor and social-emotional support services provider to assist students with problems big and small. We help students to solve their differences by using restorative practices that teach them to listen to others and navigate conflicts with friends to a positive resolution. 

    • Every year we offer a range of arts education for all students from Kinder through sixth grades. Past offerings have been hip-hop, theater arts, ceramics, animation and painting with various media.

  • With Hollywood Beach in our backyard, we have the unique opportunity to learn in “Nature’s Classroom”: hands-on, project-based STEM, PE and SEL lessons on the beach make for memorable learning. Our 6th Grade Sciece Camp and field trips to the Channel Islands and whale watching contribute to the real-world science education our students receive. 

  • Opportunities to participate in clubs, special events and activities abound at HBS: student-produced Hollywood News broadcast, Student Council, Girls (and boys) Who Code, Lego Club, Veterans Day Ceremony, Sandcastle Day, Spirit Days and more.

  • We encourage our engaged and supportive parents to be a part of the Beach School Family. Our active PTA makes positive, meaningful contributions, oversees the Room Parents program, supports the instructional program and sponsors many schoolwide events each year. Contact our PTA at

  • At Beach, we respect and appreciate the service of our Military families. We understand that the entire family serves, and we are well-versed in supporting families through the challenges of deployment and reentry and of military life. We are grateful for your service and cordially invite you to join us to be a part of our long-standing Veteran’s Day Celebration tradition. 

Our students emerge as well-rounded future citizens, well-versed in academics and capable of strong achievement, able to manage emotions and live happier lives with social-emotional strategies, and ready to participate as active global citizens. We are here to assure that your child will be inspired, empowered and thrive as a Hueneme Elementary School District student.

We're glad you're here.  Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way. Welcome to the HBS Family
