Holliston High is a great place to grow up and learn. I've had some amazing teachers and some not so amazing teachers. It is clear what teachers don't care about what their teaching or the students they teach but it is even more clear what teachers DO care .. and there are alot. The schools small size creates a a great, nurturing and individualizing environment. There is definitely a lot of love for community in this school but one issue Holliston has is its lack of diversity. Very white, very privileged children. I would say that for the most part everyone is very tolerant towards others and others' beliefs, however there is lack of heterogeneity of race or beliefs and values (political, religious, etc).

Not a lot of diversity because the town itself is not very diverse. Generally students perform well, and they have a good curriculum set in place with tracks for Honors students. AP course offerings are somewhat limited with more emphasis on science and math. Some classrooms are updated with technology while others are a bit outdated.
Holliston public school is one of the best schools in Massachusetts in my experience. Our school is filled with some of the best people in the state. We have dozens of talented musicians, young scientists, leaders and sport players. Overlooking us would be a mistake. Our school is not very diverse however, with a huge white majority and little to no African American students. We have a large LBTQ community that everyone in our school respects.
