Hollywood Arts High School is a fictional performing arts high school (grades 9-12) in the Hollywood district in Los Angeles, California. It is the main setting of Victorious.

History

It's unknown when and how the school was started/founded or where in Hollywood it's located, but as shown in "Jade with Tots", the school is located next door to a preschool.

As with a regular high school, Hollywood Arts students are required to take core classes such as English, math, science, and social studies. While the school also has an athletics program with various types of sports teams, the primary focus in on the arts.

Hollywood Arts hosts an event called "The Big Showcase" every year, which agents and other talent spotters are invited to attend, and it was during one of these showcases where Tori performed and was invited to join Hollywood Arts after she filled in for her sister, Trina.

According to several posts on TheSlap, the janitor's closet nearest the gang's lockers has video and picture cameras in it, for unknown reasons. Hollywood Arts is filmed at Burbank High School. Hollywood Arts appeared again in Sam & Cat.

Trivia

  • Hollywood Arts is seen in every episode except Wi-Fi in the Sky.
  • According to Robbie's Big Toe, you aren't required to come to school on time, yet when Beck shows up late to class, Sikowitz becomes upset, so this is questionable.
  • Namewall

    In the episode Prom Wrecker, it was said that the "Prome" is the first prom in Hollywood Arts, but in Pilot, it was said that Cat didn't get a date for the prom, so this is another questionable trivia.
  • Every student that wants to get into Hollywood Arts must perform some form of natural talent in the fields of acting, playwriting, singing, instrument playing, etc.

  • In the main hall, there is a wall with many names on it. According to Dan Schneider, the cast and crew of iCarly and wrote those names; they are meant to be the names of students who graduated from Hollywood Arts. The name Robin Weiner is on this wall; Robin Weiner is the supervising producer of iCarly and has been referenced on both shows several times.
  • In the main hall, there is a large turquoise banner with red lettering hanging from the ceiling which says "all the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." This sign is never actually seen in the show.
  • There are various articles of clothing with the Hollywood Arts "HA" pendant. André is seen wearing an HA jacket often. Twice in the show other characters have used this jacket to figure out that the gang goes to Hollywood Arts. These two characters were Mrs. Lee in Wok Star and Tara in Freak the Freak Out.
  • Hollywood Arts seems to focus more on acting than it does on regular school classes, such as Latin or Math.
  • In April Fools' Blank, the girls' bathroom is shown for the first time.
  • In April Fools' Blank, the school is changed to say "Hollyweird Arts Pie School", instead of "Hollywood" and "High".
  • The school has sports teams but, prior to the formation of the "ping pong team", they hadn't won even a single trophy.
  • Hollywood Arts appears in the iCarly episode "iParty with Victorious" and the Sam & Cat episode "#MommaGoomer." It also receives several mentions in the latter show.
  • In "Freak the Freak Out", Hayley and Tara voice the opinion that Hollywood Arts is for "wannabes", possibly suggesting that the school has a poor reputation. In both "Tori Goes Platinum" and "Robbie Sells Rex", Mason Thornesmith also expresses a low opinion of the student body.
  • There are two known methods to get acceptance into Hollywood Arts. Either one auditions for a spot or one is invited to attend by the principal. Tori is the only known student to have been invited to attend.
