I started Holtville High School in 3rd grad (then, it was First Grade through Twelfth Grade). It was a most wonderful time in my life. It was a close knit family-style school. Everyone knew all the families and I loved it from the bottom of my heart. For info - I graduated in 1951.

I will be graduating from Holtville in May 2006. I have attended Holtville since 10th grade. I have been in about 10 different schools since kindergarden, in all different states. So I've had my share of good and bad schools. I am happy to say that Holtville has definately been the best experience of all. I will be proud to be a Holtville graduate.

My daughter will be graduating this May from Holtville High School and the experience she has gained from attending this school will help her as she goes off to college this fall. I cannot say enough about the faculty and staff at this school. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Her memories will be with her for the rest of her life. Thanks again for all the help and positive outlook you have given her.
