Holden High School Reviews
Holden High School is the best. After just my first two years, I was amazed at how friendly everyone is. The principal received her Doctorate's recently and the whole staff was amazing. They help you prepare for your life ahead. Nothing needs changed, because they have everything down to a science.
I loved being in choir for the three years I went to Holden. The school was absolutely terrible in many ways though. Everyone already had their cliques when I moved there so I never had much of a chance to fit in. I got made fun of on the daily by a group of guys who would smack me around. I never felt safe with all the drugs and bullying around me. The school had mold on the roof tiles and leaks constantly. If I could go back in time I would never choose to go to this school.
I said it was okay because there is only a lot of support in about three of the sports and that would be football, volleyball and wrestling. The rest of the extra-ciriculars kind of get pushed to the side. For example, when the soccer team stopped being funded, or when the art department was not receiving very sufficient funds or that when our softball went to districts we did not celebrate but we did for the wrestling and football. Our school makes it very obvious that they care more about certain activities than others. I also think that our school makes it clear that they do not care as much about JV games because in the yearbook and the newspaper, only Varsity tends to be photographed. I think this all tends to put down students and make it seem as if one extra-circicular activity is more important than the other or that they don't care if you were not skilled enough to be on the Varsity team.
