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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
