North Hollywood High School, originally called Lankershim High School when it opened in 1927, is a secondary school in North Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. The school mascot is the husky, and the school colors are blue, white and grey.

North Hollywood High School is located in the San Fernando Valley and enrolls approximately 3000 students each year. It is located in District 2 of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Several neighborhoods, including most of North Hollywood, Valley Village, Studio City and Sun Valley, send students to this school.

As of 2009, the school principal is Dr. Randall V. Delling. From 2000 to 2007, North Hollywood High was a year-round school with 3 tracks (A, B, and C). During the 2007-2008 school year, a traditional calendar was re-adopted. The school itself is divided into many small learning communities (SLCs).


Second High School opens in North Hollywood - 2006

In 2006 East Valley High School opened, relieving overcrowding at North Hollywood.[1][2] Grades 9 and 10 in the eastern portion of the North Hollywood attendance zone were reassigned to East Valley, while 11th and 12th grades were phased into East Valley over a two-year period.

Zoo Magnet

Founded in 1981, this magnet is a specialized school that buses its students out to a site next to the Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park. At this site, the approximately 300 students who attend take both regular classes such as history, math, and English and Advanced Placement classes related to biological and zoological sciences, which the students can choose from in place of chemistry or physics, or as general electives. Many of these classes also include trips to the Los Angeles Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Los Angeles River ecosystem, Autry National Center and the natural world of Griffith Park for tours and observation. This is the only school in LAUSD with ties to the Los Angeles Zoo. One class, Animal Behavior, requires observation time in the Los Angeles Zoo. Another class, Animal Husbandry, requires volunteering with zookeepers in different areas of the Los Angeles Zoo (this class is reserved for seniors). Classes meet 3 days a week for a duration of 2 hours per class, as they are on a block schedule. This school has nine classrooms, but ten teachers (currently), so there is what they call a "traveling teacher", meaning the teacher occupies whatever class is open for the period.

Highly Gifted Magnet

The HGM program was established at North Hollywood High in 1989, modeled after programs at schools like Walter Reed Middle School. It accepts students who have a measured IQ of 145 or higher and is designed to provide an academically challenging college preparatory program. The 300 students in grade 9-12 study a rigorous curriculum commensurate with the most demanding of public or private schools in the country.
