Overall, I would say that Holt High School is a good school. The teachers and staff are all willing to help you if you need any assisstance. The student body is also pretty diverse! However, most clubs and sports don't get any attention fron the school board except for football which is expected but still.

Compared to the other nearby schools, my high school is actual a very good fit. They offer dual enrollment and trade school programs to help students prepare for their desired career path. It a decently open and inviting school and has a good environment for students to learn. If you wanted to get ahead in classes, the counselors make it extremely difficult. My algebra 1 credit wouldn't transfer because our school has Algebra AB so I had to retake the class. If one wanted to seek other opportunities to try and get ahead academically, he or she would have to research it themselves. Overall it is a decent school and I am glad to be a part of it.
The thing I enjoyed about Holt High, are the supportive teachers. Walking out of each class, I personally felt that they had my back and I had someone to fall back on. They are super understanding of my personal life and are super flexible when dealing with the negative aspects that it holds. The band program offered at Holt High saved my life. Growing up, life was not easy and that led me to have very severe depression. When I joined the Holt Ram Marching Band, we all became a family and that is what I needed during that time. One thing that I would change is the preparedness for college and outsude life after college. As a student, I feel as it we are forced to have a set plan for college and a way to reach that goal.
