Overall HHS was average. While the academics were challenging enough, options were limited as the administration didn't see a need for possible electives in less common subjects (i.e. media). Most teachers were kind enough, but as per any school, there were a handful that were either disillusioned by the actual job or just shouldn't have been teachers. Basically, if you didn't go against the grain often, or at all, your experience would be at the very least okay.

Throughout my high school life at Holdrege, I've learned a great deal of stuff. Most of the staff genuinely care about students graduating. There is a lot of programs and extracurricular activities granted. The student body puts effort into supporting all activities. Then there's the fact that all teachers go the extra mile to make sure everyone is following along and is understanding the material we are taught.
Holdrege High School is a great small town, rural Nebraska city. It offers many opportunities whether you prefer sports or other extracurricular activities. The school is a very safe place to settle and has an inviting school system. The newly renovated front and signs of the school really bring a brighter, more open feel to the school day. Facilities in the high school have been kept very well. All of the bathrooms in the school were remodeled less than a year ago and bring a modern pop that the school needed. The school itself is not sparkling new by any way but it doesn't feel historic. Teachers are very qualified in their respective positions with one even being a NASA scientist. It's nice to know that I am truly learning from some of the smartest people, academically and in life skills. Overall Holdrege High School puts a good image of Holdrege into one building.
