I love it there right now.

We have raised three kids in Holt and I feel that their education through Holt schools is/was first rate. But like anything else, it is up to the individuals and their families to emphasize education. The staff is responsive and progressive and they seek community involvement. Great leadership through Tom Davis and now Johnny Scott, both great individuals. Discipline is enforced and the kids feel safe and comfortable.

I moved from Holt about a year and a half ago, let me tell you that school was a family. I mean all schools have their flaws as well as the people in it but that school was home to me. The staff is excellent the students are intelligent and everything is done around the students. They go an extra mile to help you learn everything is hands on and very thought through, im moving back in the summer. Im more than excited. Best school ever,

A good school with some great teachers, where every child is given a opportunity to succeed. Advanced and college prep classes are offered and encouraged to students. However due to a socio/economic clash in the area, education is not valued as much as should be. Being a former student 1996 to 1998, I would say around 30% of students really failed to realize the importance of college and standardized meap tests. Teachers did their best to prep students but some responsiblity must be put on the students themselves. One last thing, they just opened a new high school, and it looks great, new facilities are always a plus.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
