Our Program

• Mission Statement

Holmstead School is in session from 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. daily. College preparation skills as well as career development experiences are offered. Students are required to take six courses in a rotating schedule. This procedure minimizes anxiety about facing the same courses at the same time each day. Students are required to fulfill state-mandated course requirements but many electives are designed to provide a well-rounded curriculum. Students are encouraged to take an active part in the planning of their schedules, by selecting courses from the forty-five offered at Holmstead. These course selections are compiled by the Supervisor of Education in an effort to predict improvement, promote success and increase motivation.

Incorporated into the school day is a one-hour required class called recreational arts, in which students fulfill physical education mandates and participate in organized activities. These include physical education, yearbook, journalism, music instruction and photography. Field trips, which vary from the educational to the recreational, are offered periodically.

Holmstead School is in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which prohibits discrimination by reason of race, color, sex, creed or national origin.
