I've been involved with 5 different schools over time, and I'm so glad my kids go here. It is top notch, and they have very high standards. Sometimes there are some people who complain about this school's rigor, but to me, high standards are much more important than simply passing every student along. I specially appreciate the principal's (Ginger Jones) vision and leadership. There are many, many progressive, cutting edge teachers as well.

I'm a senior now, and every day that goes by I'm more and more dissatisfied with the school and classes. Every day, the administration imposes some new rule that impedes our learning. It's a real struggle, sometimes, to actually learn here. The senior project we're being forced to do feels disorganized and poorly executed. The teachers themselves, well, some of them let their personal issues get in the way of giving us an objective education.

Holden High has a great Band and FFA group, the kids do alot for our community and care alot for all the members of the community. We are a small Farm town, but the children of the area have very big hearts.
