The teachers and staff treat my children like their own! I couldn't ask for a better school system!
I have children in the 5th and 1st grade at E.M Holt. We love the school! My children have excelled academically and emotionally in their years here. My 5th grader is in the AIG program which has allowed him to develope far beyond the 5th grade level. Both of my children are working above their grade level. So, there are advanced and accellerated programs available for the children that need them and there are many children in the AIG program. The teachers, parents and students are fantastic! Everyone puts great effort in giving the school an environment that is encouraging and positive. I would love to see a full time art teacher, but I know this is not the fault of the school. All of our schools have had art and music taken away in order to focus on end of grade testing.
This school offers basic academic programs. Music, art, and sports are available, but in the most basic form. This school does not go beyond what is required. The level of parent involvement is exceptional. The principal and the teachers at this school are caring and put the children's needs first. My only problem with this school is that it is racially unbalanced. There are very few minority students at this school, and virtually none on the school staff. I believe this sets an unrealistic precedent for students. All schools need diversity for harmony and balance.
