Teachers yell at children and degrade them daily. Very poor security measures in place. I have checked my child out without even being asked for ID from someone attending desk that I know for a fact does not know me from Adam... Child has been bullied with really no interest from Principal or Administration at this school. Principal should be ashamed of leadership she has provided for these children.

My son is in 6th grade. He has been in the Holtville system since 2nd grade and at this point is so far behind his peers that we have been looking for help. So far help from the school has been minimal. Like pulling teeth.

My family has been a part of Holtville Schools for a number of years. Holtville Middle School deserves nothing but the best reviews. Principal Webb has been a tremendous asset to the school and the children. Her door is always open and she is always ready to discuss any problem. The teachers have all been wonderful and I have always felt welcomed anytime I have visited the school. Thank you Holtville Middle School and Principal Webb!Keep up the good work!.

My daugther is in the 8th grade and has attended holtville schools since 3rd grade. Having a special education child is challenging, but the teachers and faculty have been great. Everyone has been supportive and offered all the assistance they can. My child knows she is cared about and it has made a difference. Thanks for all the help through the years, and i wish you continued success with others whether they have special needs or not. Go bulldogs.
