Holden High School Reviews

Holden High School is a smaller environment for kids that have the ability to have one-on-one connection with all of their students. Class size is not too large giving them an easier learning environment.
There are a lot of outside school activities offered through the school to allow students have extracurricular experiences that help shape them as well rounded people of society. I recommend taking the available ACT prep available for High school students which will help improve their ACT score dramatically and help them qualify for the bigger bracket of TOPS scholarship. Also for more challenging courses available to get college credit while still in high school is a fantastic opportunity.
The staff at Holden are looking for all students their to succeed in all of their future endeavors and I always felt a personal connection with all of them. Leaving High school and starting college I felt well prepared with my education and did not have a hard time adjusting to the real world.

I have attended HHS for 5 years and I like this school, but it has some flaws, hopefully these things would change. Firstly my bus driver would drive past our bus stop in the mornings, and then we would chase after the bus. her excuse was that she did not see us, but later I found out that kids told her that we were chasing the bus. Secondly, some of the teachers would discourage me. I did not have the material I need to smell " acceptable" And so in class periods I would have had air fresher spayed at me by the teachers. Bullying is also a big problem at Holden. One of there students beats up my brother on the bus. We got called names like "city slickers" "gay" " disgusting" and more. I have a friend who does not believe in Christ and he got yelled at for not standing up for the prayer in the mornings. So is it possible to have a moment of silence instead?
There are may opportunities available to students. They try their best prepare students for college and higher levels of education past high school. They have a zero tolerance atmosphere and handle situations effectively. There are minor flaws in the teacher review and teacher discipline, but overall a top grade school that is helpful, efficient, and above average. They offer several dual enrollment opportunities and chances to get college hours and credit. Each student is held accountable and required to do their best in order to meet their potential. This school is great for people who want to prepare to be successful in their post-highschool education and pathway.
