Holt Hawks are soaring into the 21st Century with Global Integration and Language Academy in Spanish and Chinese! Under the dynamic, collaborative and skilled leadership of Star Sampson and Donya Jones, the hard-working Holt staff has achieved accolades for turning the school into an exemplary Durham Public Schools Global Magnet School. I have worked in Holt for thirteen years, and am a witness to the transformation in our focus and commitment to providing a rigorous, standards-based, and data-driven education, yet at the same time, a positive and supportive learning environment for our students. Sometimes we have broken wings to help fix before they can fly, but all Holt Hawks will leave our nest with self-esteem and confidence SOARING. Each grade level is assigned a continent of the world as their focus, which is integrated into centers and projects for Language Arts, Math and Science, and Enrichment classes that include Art, Computer, Media, Music,P.E.& Science. We would love for you to join us in our efforts to make the future a better place for our children. We would love more volunteers and community involvement with our school. Help our Holt Hawks SOAR into the world!
