Holden is great! The teachers are excellent, funny, and caring for each students' education. The students, although a bit hyped up, help each other in a good and environmental way. I am an 8th grader attending Holden and so far, this grammar school experience for me as been an excelling, fabulous, and marvelous trail for me. Excellent school!
I agree with some of the other comments, though they are old. The past two years have been tough. Most of the teachers are great, though there are a few that lack teaching skill. Also they say they have a zero tolerance for bullies, yet my child was bullied and after almost two months of me visiting, calling and emailing I finally recieved a response. The process was another thing. I feel that Holden is not what it used to be and can be. Very unhappy with the school now. Half of the sports and programs were cancelled.
Holden teachers are the best! The principal goes above and beyond. how may times do you see the principal of a school come out and pick up garbage around the school and the park area. he walks around the school before it starts checking on children making sure things are safe and after school he comes and checks that everything is in order. i know he really cares about his students & staff. i give him A++++
Holden School is one of the oldest educational institutions in our neighborhood. It is necessary to support the thriving schools in this area, because education is the most important indicator of a healthy community. The teachers, students, families and community work hard to maintain this quality institution and deserve this award to support their future efforts.
I was a part of the pta when my children first started school there in 2000. and now my daughter is still a part of the school. the teachers are there to assist, they put in extra time to stay and help students when they need it. Holden's PTA helps to bring awareness to important issues and assists the children in learning and makes them want to come to school with fun events for learning.
