Holston High School Reviews
Rating 4.05 out of 5 20 reviews
I love the fact that we are a small school. You really get to know the teacher, administration and students. I would like to see school lunches to start to taste better!
At Holston High School, the teachers really care about the students. Everyone wants to help others succeed. The only thing that I have against the school is that they don't really prepare students for college.
It is very peaceful, and full of amazing people. The teachers really care about the future of the students and want to get you where you need to be. Although it is small, the people here make the best out of every situation and make you want to be here. It is truly an amazing place with great people to be around.
