I am a January 2006 graduate from Holloway and if I had not had the help and support I had while at Holloway I would not have made it this far.Thanks to Mr. Duggin and all my teachers and staff. Holloway is like home.Thank you for helping me.

Holloway High has changed my life in many different ways. When I came there I had no hope in myself until now, thanks to all the staff and students. We are treated like adults there and with respect like we do unto the staff. At my other schools I felt like you was judged, here you arn't judged by what you wear,how much money you have,or what you look like, we are all the same. We are like one BIG happy family. I thought I couldn't start over from bad mistakes I made in the past but I can here, and arn't judged by that. By Holloway I am better person. THANK YOU.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
