Just last year, Holt High School sent seniors on their own while freshman joined everyone else. The North Campus holds college class for seniors and the South Campus, or the Main Campus, holds class for the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Holt Public Schools Superintendent David Hornak said this change was beneficial to all students of high school age. Prior to this change, ninth-graders had their own building, separate from grades 10-12. “Moving the ninth-graders to the senior high helps them to engage in high school experiences for preparation of high-stakes standardized testing and provides resources to keep students on a path to a successful future,” said Hornak.
