This school is good. My kid is happy with the teacher and the school. Next year I am planning to send my second kid too.

I love this school. There are just some things that should be taken into consideration. Like an all day preschool, special education for preschool and up. Fundraisers that you can buy the items online. This way family and friends that don't live near you can purchase too.

My daughter has been going to Holder since Kindergarten. We have had the best teachers every year! The office staff is amazing and so helpful! This year we will be getting a new principal and I couldn't be happier!

I am very pleased with the kindergarten program and the kindergarten teachers. The teachers are very skilled, very dedicated to teaching, they work hard and they accomplish a lot! My son has never attended preschool and half-way through the school year he is already reading books! I don't know yet about the higher grades, but for the kindergarten this school gets 5 out of 5 stars. Also, I have a comment about some of the other reviews listed here. I understand that not every parent is a native English speaker, but the next time they post a review they should use a spell checker. It's hard to take a review seriously when the parent of the student makes several spelling and grammar errors within a several sentence paragraph.

Unfortunately, this school has a lot of work to do. The staff is very dedicated and want the best for the children, but they are ill-equipped. The practices and theory of this school are outdated and as a result the children are not given the chance to work up to their full potential. Facts: Teachers are given little to no professional development to stay current. When development does occur, one person is properly trained and others then attempt to learn from one person. With little communication amongst teachers, this can be tough. Children have been moved after the first month of school for the past few years from class to class due to poor planning and organization on the part of the administration. The math curriculum, Saxon Math, is designed for home schooling and has received terrible reviews online and by parents/teachers and results in low test scores and unprepared children. "Arts & Crafts" are still highly prevalent and have little to no supplemental value to the lesson. Teachers are not given the tools to team plan, therefore grades given from teacher to teacher vary and can be very objective. Preferable to try to keep you child in another school.

Holder is a great School with great teacher the only problem i have had is the principal (miss. Sandy) she is very judgemental and if you disagree with her your wrong. If a child moves mid year and their frinds or family members are Troublesome she will judge your child by the people around him/her and she won't allow your child to stay in the school on top of that she has talked badly of parents and children in front of of other parents and that is if nothing else in bad tast over all great school but the principal leavs much to be desired

My child has gone to Holder since 2nd grade, currently in 6th. Overall, the school is okay only. It caters to average students only. So, if you have a child below average or above average the workload is either too hard to too easy. My child has not been challenged since 3rd grade. Some of the staff and teachers are very caring but do not have an understanding how to deal the special children. They desperately need new teachers that care about the children , something more than just the holiday art projects, teacher board meetings, etc. The principal and the new kindergarten program are great.

I am an active parent of a kindergartener. I think is a good school because I am involve with her education. Her teacher cares about the student. My daughter is doing well in her class. I personally feel it is up to the parent responsibility to get involved in their child's education and not blame on teacher or the school if anything goes wrong. What you do is what you get out of it.

I am a parent of 3 children that attend Holder Elementry. I am unsatisfied with the cirriculum of this schoolbecause 2 of my children are advanced and they are giving them work that my first grader can do. I am also not pleased with the fact that they spend more time on enforcing new off the wall policies than teaching.

I am a parent of a student that attends Holder and I got to say that I'm not very satisfied with this school.Some of the staff and teachers are very caring,but I am not satisfied with the workload and level.I don't think the curriculum of this school is very challenging for the students.I am not happy about PTA...

I think Holder is good school but all staff need to pay attention to the details becuase some time due to lack of the detail, our kids has to pay the price. Ofcourse the school need some more caring staff such as teacher, playground aide and admin staff. I am not pleased with admin staff but no complains about principle.

Posted January 1, 2008

I have 2 children in attendance - K and 1st. The new full day Kinder is a great program. My Daughters Kinder teacher is awesome! I have a special needs child who is, so far, well taken care of. New playground equip, clean well maintained campus, admin staff is very friendly...absolutely nothing to complain about.

I think that Holder is a good school. My daughter is in 1st grade and attended Holder for kindergarten as well. They have updated the playground equipment, just to update everyone! I have been pleased with the teachers and the principal.

I think Holder Elementary is a school that needs some new ideas. They desperately need new teachers to bring some difference to the school. At the moment it is just average, but could be so much more with a little work.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
