Holmdel Township School District Reviews
Everyones' parents moved to Holmdel for one main reason, the education! And while by the numbers, Holmdel Township School District is near the top, my experience there was mixed. I like to consider myself a pretty smart kid, yet the sheer level of competition is unbelievable, so much so that you are underwhelmed with your own performance if it isn't at the very top. This culture of perfection shared by most yields a little hostility. The teachers, too, across my experience also were never anything special. It seems as though many kids have a teacher at least once that inspires them in a great way, yet that never happened to me in 12 years. All in all, I benefitted greatly from Holmdel School district, but certainly be wary of the environment you want to bring your child to.
The Holmdel School District provides the best all around educational opportunities in the State, which can be attributed to what is occurring in the school and outside. For instance, there is a heavy emphasis on academics by many within the community -- the instruction that occurs during the school day is supported by tutoring at home to make sure that their child can succeed. Parents also provide tremendous support for children who are interested in the arts and sports. The Holmdel community also passed a referendum to support investments in the school facilities. There cannot be many schools that are as good as Holmdel in the State, which is attributable to the community support of the District.
I think that our sports are competitive, but our sport facilities could be better/more up to date. The cafeteria and cafe are good but I think there needs to be a bigger variety of healthy food and drinks.
