I personally enjoyed going to South Holt High School, I loved all the students and the teachers. To be honest I loved the sports the best, it really kept me focused on trying to keep my grades up because sports was much of my life, and really it's what kept me in school. I truly believe that if it were not for all the different sports that South Holt offered to all the students, I most likely would have left school.

South holt is never about the students, the teachers treat seniors in high school like 8 year olds. They run around and talk about the students as if they were in Junior High, and most of them are the principals pets.

South Holt is a small school and depending on who you are depends on how your kids are treated. If your kids are in sports they can get away with anything. Sports is a big deal and grades don't matter then.
