Being a Holland Hall Alumni and having a background in education, I feel so fortunate that we are able to send our three children to this school! It is a joy to watch them experience the school's traditions while developing life long relationships with their peers and teachers! Through their hands on approach, Holland Hall does an exceptional job encouraging ALL of their students to reach their highest potential in academics, athletics and the arts. Our children could not be happier which is why they choose Holland Hall! We know they are receiving a quality education at a place that celebrates individuality, promotes philanthropy, and facilitates critical thinking skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Without a doubt, our children will leave here equipped to face any moral, social or academic challenge that may arise in the future. Our wish is to raise happy, well adjusted, well rounded, successful adults with a sense of community responsibility. This is why we choose Holland Hall!

Our 2 boys are in the middle of their 5th year at Holland Hall. Our oldest graduated last year and is attending University of Alabama, I don't have to wonder if the education they're getting is worth the investment. Our college student was totally prepared and thriving in college. The mod schedule taught him the importance of time management, communicating and building a relationship with his teachers. He's taken these skills on with him at the college level. The teachers, families, community at Holland Hall is exceptional. Your kids will feel safe and able to express themselves no matter their interests or background. I've never seen a school where students encourage one another from music to sports to academics to life. It truly is an incredible environment for kids to learn, make mistakes, and grow into exceptional young adults.

I've met many confident, independent, self-motivated graduates of Holland Hall. However, what we appreciate most for our son, starting in the 4-year-old program and now in 5th grade, is the effective approach for active boys. Holland Hall is one of the only schools we could find that understands the relationship between physical activity and higher academic performance. Holland Hall offers two daily recesses through grade-school and PE every day - every day - for all. As a high-energy kid, my son was allowed to stretch his legs by walking down the hall between activities, use an exercise ball as a chair, stand at his desk to do his math work, or keep a squeeze ball in his pocket to discharge extra energy. All of these accommodations made possible because of the small student-to-teacher ratio. But, there is also a real effort to cultivate responsibility and independence even at young ages which keeps these accommodations from being disruptive to a class. I know older students are required to engage in both arts and a formal athletic activity; so, children that may otherwise decline these activities out of inclination, get to learn the value of creativity and teamwork. Across the board - the days at Holland Hall are heavy with hands-on learning experiences, field trips, experiments, and this too helps engage active (and all) kids. I can say I've never popped into a classroom where my son looks bored. More important: I've never seen a teacher look bored.

I graduated from Holland Hall in 2011 having gone to school there since kindergarten, and I have nothing but positive things to say. Not only did Holland Hall prepare me well for college, especially as a writer, but the teachers at Holland Hall inspired me to pursue education for the purpose of becoming a well-rounded, passionate person. If you are looking for a school that promotes learning, not just for future success, but to help shape a socially conscious, critical thinking individual, Holland Hall should be your first choice!

We knew Holland Hall was the school for us the moment we began our tour. My oldest began Holland Hall in the three year old program and she is now in middle school. All three of my girls are very different in personalty and learning style, but Holland Hall has found methods for them all to succeed. We are very satisfied with the teachers and administration. Holland Hall encourages academics, athletics, and the arts creating a well rounded student. No school is perfect, but Holland Hall has been perfect for us. Each year we say it can't get any better, but it always does.

Choosing a school for our children seemed overwhelming... until we toured Holland Hall. We could not be happier with our decision. Daily I am reminded of how our investment in education is paying off!

As a Holland Hall lifer I wouldn't trade my experiences there for the world. I would highly encourage anyone looking for a great school to add Holland Hall to the mix regardless of your financial background.
