My kids go to Holcomb High School. I had the opportunity to move to a nice house but it was in Kennett School district and I wouldnt move my kids out of Holcomb. Our school has almost doubled in the last several years because everyone wants in our district.

This is a very,very good school. My oldest son just graduated from this school on the 15th of May,2007. HHS has very good curriculum,as well as several excellent extracurricular programs. HHS also has a band class that does very well in their performances. They also have art classes. I am well satisfied with the performance of the HHS staff & school.
