This school has had potential for years but sad to say always misses the mark the teachers and staff are small minded and cater to a few favorites and the discipline is simply rediculous. Young adults are singled out or labeled in 9th grade too bad for us taxpayers. Will be school of choice for us!

Holton is a 'cool' place to be!!! I have 3 children who attend, 2 in middle school and 1 in the elementary. They receive quality education and participate in many of the extra curricular activities and sports. They love who they are in Holton and I love the small school setting. My children are never overlooked or considered just a number. They are an indiviual with individual likes and needs, and are treated with respect. I wouldn't trade my children's school for anything in this world. They deserve the best and are getting it at Holton Public Schools.

My children love Holton, and I highly recommend it. It's in a rural area, with excellent teachers, and a high moral standard.

My family for several years have been proud members of this school district. I have always felt that we were treated fairly by all three of the current pricipals, as I have a child in every building. However , I feel that the dicipline policy is unclear to the principals and is not being enforced fairly by the superintendant and the school board.

I am a fairly recent graduate of Holton High School. I have seen many changes in the school system while I was attending the school and also now, as a graduate. I am currently enrolled as a sophomore at one of the top colleges in the country, and am proud to say that I have a 3.5 GPA. I must admit that while I was still in high school I thought that the quality of education I was being taught was not 'up to par'. Now though, after being out in the world and talking to other graduates of different high schools - I realize that the education I got from Holton was just as good if not better than most other schools in Michigan. The teachers at Holton care much more than at other schools, and the principal is a very reasonable woman. Holton is a good school. Period.

I am proud to say that I am a graduate of Holton High School. The one on one education I received, from what I would argue as some of the best teachers in the state, has helped to shape who I have become. I am impressed with my education from Holton. I am a sophomore in college right now at a liberal arts college. Everyone here seems so smart and always bragging about honors they have recieved. Yet, despite how intellegent my peers seem, I can keep up to them easily. Holton is a great school, and has prepared me for the tough college I now attend. It is really too bad that the reputation of Holton is so bad, because those of us who choose to make the most out of the small school education have reached the goals we have set so high for ourselves. Thank you.

All four of our children attended k-12 at Holton, and graduated from the Holton school system. All of their basic skills were learned at Holton Public School, all have a firm foundation to compete for employment anywhere they choose. Three went on to college and graduated with honors from each college in a career of their choice. All received an excellent education, and are gainfully employed in their individual career choices. The fourth Holton student chose a skilled trades field, and is earning an impressive wage in a career of choice. We are very pleased with the Holton education system, and we are active community members, who live in this community by choice.

I believe the school could be a great school under better leadership. It is a small town school which should be a advantage, but the administration and the principal use this factor in a completely biased way that make it being a small school a disadvantage instead of a plus factor. The teachers seem compassionate, understanding, well trained and to truly care about the students well being and education, but are held back due to the attitude of the principal. In essence, they are stuck between helping their student in a positive way and following the principal's direction. In my opinion, the principal treats students as inmates who are expected to follow their leadership withour question, than as young adults expected to do the best they can, and who are bound to make mistakes. The superintendent and principal need to demonstrate more parental communication, student understanding, and compassion and less favortism.

I have to agree that the potential for a great school is there. However, I don't see it happening during the span of time my children are to be present at the school. Those in charge of authority are biased and judgemental of not only the children, but the small town effect in general. I have 5 children and not 1 more will be present at the high school until there are changes made. As a parent 'we' do have choices ~ and it doesn't have to be Holton schools unless we want it.

I believe this school system is in need of a major overhaul, starting with the school board. Any school system that cannot keep teachers, coaches, or administration for more than a couple of years at a time needs to re-evaluate on how the school is being ran.

Holton High School is a 'smaller' school that has great potential. The class sizes are small, which makes it nice for the kids to get more one on one help with their studies. The school is going through a lot of changes right now. But I truly feel that it is a plus for the students. I like the small town atmosphere that is in Holton. Everyone knows everyone is it seems to me that they are always willing to help out when needed.
