Holton High School Reviews
I loved how my sports teams really became my families. Those people were there for me no matter what I was going through and they were the ones I went through the hardest things with, on and off the court/field. Some of the teachers also made a huge impact on my education by the way that they were invested in me and wanted to make sure that I was able to succeed. One thing I did not like about Holton High School was the limitations of what we could be creative about. We were not able to express ourselves very well and many times we were not able to do things that were very school appropiate, but were for some reason not allowed.
Making every individual student try to fit in a one box fits all. Favors students that are good at filling out standardized tests over students that could have the ability to think creatively and innovatively. Prioritizes math and science over every other class- math and science are important but not any more than band, history, business, or art. Teachers prioritize "gifted" students in high school, that were determined "more advanced" than other children in grade school and are act as if the other students are "average" and shouldn't be treated the same as the advanced. Teachers are underpaid and short change students. Teachers teach the same thing the same way to multiple students, but not all students are the same. Each student has different hopes and dreams, and should be treated as such.
I'm not going to say that Holton's the worst school but it's definitely not great. The diversity of Holton is pretty narrow, it mainly consists of ignorant, white Christians. This year the laptops were loaded with this bs program called Securly. You cannot access a lot of sites and your Google searches come up with the least relevant results. I'm not even talking about accessing inappropriate sites, just regular sites for research are often restricted for whatever stupid reason. The teachers are generally pleasant, but some are pretty incompetent, and odd imo. Spanish is the only language course available so that's pretty discouraging to kids who want to take a different language. The food's run of the mill, plus the portions are not near enough to fill anyone up. Overall I'd recommend not going to Holton High but if you must it's a tolerable environment.
