I’m very proud to be a student at HHS! Many teachers go above and beyond to provide the best not only for the student’s education but also their lives. I’ve seen teachers give whatever they can to those who may have missed lunch or just didn’t have lunch that day and are most times open to help students before and after school as well as lunch-time and advisory. The campus is big but not so big that you feel lost. Our sports games are fun and uniting, always a good student section! The thing I am most proud of is our music program. We are a family and help each other in need, and have improved so much over time and keep growing each year (thanks to Ms. Cox and Mrs. Munger!) Once again, teachers change lives here at hhs.

I enjoyed high school very much! While I recognize that no school can boast perfection and I definitely see things that could be changed to improve the atmosphere and environment, Holland High School offers a wonderfully complete package. Strong academic offerings; significant diversity in socioeconomics, ethnicity, race and religions; a community of teachers who strive to help all students grow and staff who truly desire the best for all who come through the doors, all make for a setting that encourages unity as well as personal challenge and growth. Holland High School provided for me the challenge, the encouragement and the fun to make my high school years memorable and very beneficial.
Holland High School is a truly remarkable place with an excellent staff that goes above and beyond to ensure that every student is equipped to succeed. The level of dedication and love the staff has with all the kids is so inspiring to see. We transferred our son from a local charter school in Holland to HHS and couldn't be happier with our decision. Our first parent/teacher conference was a true indication of just how committed the teachers and staff are....we were blown away by their level of knowledge and information. It was far better than anything we had experienced at the charter school. If you are having doubts about Holland Public Schools, please don't. It is a great place!
