The staff at Holden with input from parents believe that all stakeholders make a difference every day in the lives of students and each other.  We work together each day – instructional staff, support staff, clerical, custodial, community volunteers and parents to assist each student in reaching their learning goals.


A place everyone wants to be!

The Holden staff believes that a high achieving and successful school is a place where students, staff and parents are welcomed, treated with respect and learning new interesting/relevant curriculum.  All whom enter our school are expected to be learners every day.
