When we first moved to this school I was a little nervous as to how my son would get along with the staff and students. He has attention issues and can require a great deal of help staying on task. It took us a while to adjust to the differences from his previous school, but by the 2nd half of the year he was doing much better and half of the staff (including teachers he hasn't had) knew his name. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help out where needed. They really are like a family and my son loves Mrs. Troman, the principal. I am so greatful that they take the time to adjust their plans as needed in order to help the children feel comfortable and reach their full potential.

Holden Elementary has so much spirit. I work with the students and teachers in the garden they made. The children are so engaged and attentive. The teachers are supportive and encourage the children to learn. The secretary, custodian and cafeteria personnel have gone out of their way to do their part in making the garden a success.

Holden is an amazing school. The principle, teachers and staff are fantastic. There is great communication both within the school and with parents, a family like atmosphere, and all of the teachers seem to love what they do, going above and beyond the parameters of their "job". We are outside of the "Holden district" in Kent and still choose to send our kids because of how fantastic this school is.

I went to Holden when I was a kid-now I'm 31 and I still have fond memories of my 3 years there. I still remember my kindergarden teacher Mrs. Mitroff. It is a great school with great teachers.

Our daughter is 12; a Holden alum and Stanton stand out. She was identified as gifted early and the educators at Holden were quick to ensure she was consistently challenged in her school work. Our son is a current Holden student and has had a different learning path. In Kindergarten, Mrs. Mitroff noticed he was struggling and a bit behind. She explained the Title program and insisted he could benefit from the all day kindergarten program. Mrs. Walter, his Title teacher, was absolutely amazing! He gradually progressed under their combined tutelage. Our son received assistance from the Title program for two more years, being pulled from classes for additional instruction. By the time he entered third grade, he no longer needed the additional help. In fact, the solid foundation he received early on at Holden allowed him to grow and excel. Excel he has --right on into the gifted program!

My first perception of Holden Elementary School was not 'all' positive. However, time and my child's instructor has improved my perception greatly. My child's classroom instructor is great at keeping the children focused and in assessing their needs. If every teacher at Holden possesses the abilities my child instructor possess, the children at Holden is truly lucky and fortunate!
