My family and I moved here from Tucson, Az 4 years ago. We went from having our children in a school in which they behaved like little robots, so that they could pass tests, to Holt, where each student is valued for their uniqueness. Our kids attended this school when Kebin Boling was principal, as well as when Joyce Johnson took over. We couldn't be happier with the school. Leadership works as a team with teachers and as a team, they hold kids accountable - but without the requirement of being a little robots. We love that our kids have been able to grow into community leaders through their experiences at this school.

We moved here 2 yrs ago from Washington State. When my kids first started at Holt , 2 and 4th grades, initially I was concerned because my kids were farther ahead than their classmates. I had multiple meetings with Joyce, the principle, and with their teachers and we were able to come up with a plan that met my children's needs. They were tested for advanced placement and their teachers did a great job at keeping them challenged. I would say that moving to a new area where you don't know anyone to ask what area schools to recommend it challenging but I highly recommend Bertha Holt Elementary. Their Parent Teacher relationship is wonderful and most important is that my kids love being there.

Unfortunately my family didn't have a good experience at this school. We are new to the area and had high hopes for the educational experience of our child. The new principal, Joyce, was not good about communicating with our family and we ultimately withdrew our child after several mishandled events. There definitely needs to be some work on keeping parents well-informed and more involved to eliminate situations getting out of control. We were not given the opportunity to have any input on helping our child become adjusted to a new school environment. There needs to be a realization that the students are real people who have futures, so how situations are handled is of the utmost importance to parents.

We are new to the area and I must say I am so impressed with this school i can't believe how amazing it is!!!!! The new principal Joyce is wonderful and very involved on a daily basis. She attended the parent/teacher meetings and visited each classroom so the parents could meet her. The parent/teacher meetings were held for parents only and they were able to sit in the class and learn about what the agenda is like for the students. The communication is very open and it is always easy to reach someone and you always hear back usually on the same day. Safety is a huge priority for me and as I was visiting other schools here in Eugene, I noticed that is also a top priority for Holt. I would highly recommend this school.

I couldn't have hand picked a better school. The teachers genuinely care about the kids. The PTA program is amazing, our kids have so many benefits from it. There is always something new for the kids to be doing. You will always see the principal in the halls or out with the kids. Best school my family has dealt with hands down!
