I had an awesome high school experience! I am grateful for the friends I made and we will always have a superb connection. The education at Holmdel is competitive and challenging which prepared me well for college. I didn't realize it at the time and I was often discouraged. However, I now see my classmates in college struggling because although they were straight A students in high school, they were not prepared for the vigor of college.
Although I participated in many extra curricular activities, my heart and soul went into playing soccer for my high school. The coaches and teammates made my day EVERYDAY ! I will always cherish the life lessons and memories from Holmdel High School !

First I would love to say my time at holmdel high school was wonderful. I made great friends, and the education was excellent. On the other hand, them dealing with bullying is not prioritized. As much as they say “We are taking care of the situation” they are truly not. My sister told the school police officer how she felt unsafe to be around a certain person and to do something during lunch time, he responded to her with “we are handling the situation the best we could.” And she went on with her day. The end of the day rolls around and my sister had hands laid on her from the student who she felt unsafe with. If there is something this high school needs to do, it is taking action on something early on, rather than later if a student is asking for help. Obviously this school isn’t taking care of the situation, if someone laid hands on my sister. Take action holmdel high school, bullying is the #1 problem in Holmdel that is not being taken care of.
I greatly have enjoyed my time at Holmdel high school. I will be graduating from here in June and I can proudly say that the last four years have been nothing but a pleasure. The school has so much to offer. Great education, lots of diverse groups of students and teachers, an excellent facility, extremely safe environment, and has to be one of the best schools out there for getting you prepared for college. I had lots of fun going to school here with all of my friends and getting a great education. The sole reason most parents move to Holmdel is for the school system. The high school is a prime example of why people migrate here. I made so many great friends here, I won two Group 2 State Championships with the soccer program, and I learned so many great lessons about not only about the subjects in school but life lessons as well. I will truly miss going to Holmdel High school. I will cherish the few months I still have here at Holmdel High school.
