Holland Patent Central School District Reviews
I am currently enrolled at Holland Patent High School, and i believe we are a good community and a solid school. Although being small school, i believe it really benefits every student. Teachers personally know every one of their students over the course of the years that you attend HP and we truly try to connect with every person individually. Our principal knows mostly everyone, and one of the best things about HP is the support system and the tightness of the community we create in HP. One of the main things that I would improve is trying to increase the school's diversity and its volunteering opportunities. We don't have students from a very wide range of backgrounds but i think we should really strive to include kids from every state and accept more kids from throughout the world. We also have very limited opportunities coming from a rural area but i believe we could really make an impact throughout our county if we were able to increase volunteering and diversity.
While the academic aspect of Holland Patent is pretty good, there are a couple of things that could use some change. For example, how they enforce the rules and how they keep the students safe. An example of this is how someone caught making a bomb threat only gets suspended for the day. Not the day they made the bomb threat for, but the day it was found out that they were the ones who made it. And while we have not been bombed, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take the threat seriously. Now for the good things. The majority of the teachers are fair and have a good teaching method. The education is very good and they have many college classes students can take. And finally, the music program and sports are another perk about Holland Patent.
I enjoyed the opportunity to take dual credit courses. This school offers many more than some surrounding districts. Fairness in many processes, with administration, athletics, and academics, is not present. Safety also needs to be improved greatly.
