Home of the Hollywood High School Shieks
One of the unique nicknames in all of high school sports is the Sheiks of Hollywood High School, which is located at Sunset and Highland Boulevards, a short stroll from Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. The school’s mascot is derived from the 1921 Rudolph Valentino film of the same name, The Sheik.
In the final photograph in our gallery you can see the outdoor entertainment stage for the Jimmy Kimmel LIVE television show, which is just across the street.
Hollywood High has served the educational needs of many celebrities such as: Valerie Bertinelli, Carol Burnett, Mike Farrell, Laurence Fishburne, Judy Garland, James Garner, Ricky Nelson, Sara Jessica Parker, Mickey Rooney and Rita Wilson, who was a cheerleader for the Sheiks.
