Hola recently scored well above the state average in Math and English Language on the NJ PARCC for the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
Under the leadership of "Kids First/Reach Higher, Hoboken" the Hoboken Public Schools have the highest rate of violence, vandalism, and bullying in Hudson County, New Jersey and have failed the NJ State monitoring QSAC DPR in Instruction and Program for four straight years. In addition, despite former Board President and current trustee Leon Gold's claim that Hola is "bankrupting the district" (see also this retort), the Hoboken School district had a surplus of $1.1 million for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014 and over a $5,400,000 dollar surplus for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015 (see 14:30-15:00 mark in this video).
