I am participating in XC and track, as well as band, and theater. I am loving it! I have some great friends who do the same activities that I do. Academics at Holliston are awesome. It offers 4 levels of classes for your preference. Last year the school got rid of all the standard one person desks throughout the school, and replaced them with group-type desks for a more interactive learning environment.

In the Holliston High School, students from many cultures and backgrounds come together. As a student, once I came to the high school, I met so many different people and was able to connect with them through wide variety of sports, extracurricular, and clubs the school has to offer. In addition, Holliston High School has a rigorous , but excellent academic program. It offers various AP/Honors classes in which the students get to choose from based on their liking. Some of the classes include: Criminology, Neuroscience, Marine Biology, and Finance. However, this school deals with a few problems. Bees continuously swarm the courtyard outside making it very hard to enjoy a meal in the summer with your friends. Also, the heaters and cooling systems do not work properly or effectively. The temperatures become extremely hot/extremely cold drastically in each classroom when the seasons change. Due to this, students become less concentrated and often fall ill due to the temperature change.
Holliston High School is filled with teachers, counselors, and advisors that strive for you to succeed. As a college sophomore, I still go to my teachers for letters of recommendation and life advice. This high school prepares you to succeed in college and any next step in life.
I had a colorful high school experience because of the clubs and activities the school offers, and has definitely shaped me as a student because of its academic rigor. It is one of the best schools in the state, and I enjoyed my time there greatly!
