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.

Holmdel High School has a rigorous curriculum and brilliant teachers that allow their students to flourish under the right circumstances. There are a wide variety of classes and students are slowly given the opportunity to choose different classes in order to suit their interests. However, there have been increasingly more regulations put into place in this school. These restrictions greatly inhibit the ability of many students to utilize all of their resources in the school environment. For this reason, while the education may be great, the environment in which you are learning certainly requires improvement.
I believe that I received a good education through Holmdel Schools, I have been in this school district since kindergarten and I have enjoyed it. The teachers that I have had vary, not every teacher was outstanding mainly because of teaching styles. One downside is that we have had the same classmates for 12 years, which is good and bad. Our grade is close because we have grown up together, but it does not allow a lot of diversity or opportunity to meet new people in school. Some classes are not as serious or vigorous as others, but that it due to the teachers. As far as college readiness, I feel somewhat prepared for college, I feel like I was not given as much work as I will receive in college. I also feel like we are too sheltered, and should be given more responsibility and independence. By saying this, I mean that the teachers should not always be so lenient because that causes laziness in students and bad working habits that will not be beneficial in college.
