    "I loved Holton arms from 3rd-8th grade. However in ninth grade I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, and every thing spiraled since then. I am finding it hard to graduate because I had to go to a psychiatric hospital after suicidal thoughts, and now I am faced with a ridiculous amount of work and insensitivity from the school. I was told that I wasn't physically ill, so I had to come back to school immediately. Horrible horrible experiences that have traumatized me. Upper school is not a safe place. However, lower and middle school were the best years of my life. The only problem I have is with the administrators who do not take mental health seriously and the counselors who told me to hold all my feelings inside instead of expressing them healthily. Then I ended up in a psychiatric hospital. I wish very much that I could have left holton after 8th grade, but now I am overworked and I may not graduate."

    "Holton has the most incredible community. The teachers support us unconditionally and the student body is filled with energetic, smart, genuinely kind girls."

    "Wonderful school, challenges the students and is diverse. Teachers are very responsive to the students and parents and the principal is very aware of what is happening in the school."

    "I graduated from Holton Arms in 2015. Having been there since 3rd grade, Holton was the only school I knew. Now into my second year in college, I can say that I definitely took my education for granted. Being the academically rigorous school that it is, Holton has really prepared me for college. I am well above most of my peers, and the college workload seems like a joke. I am very comfortable engaging and participating in class thanks to the student to teacher ratio. While I was a student there, I felt like Holton was overrated; however, after having entered college I realize it was truly an amazing school."

    "Think twice or more before you send your daughter here. Some teachers are good (averaging about 60%), but the administration is inflexible. If your daughter is placed in the wrong level (which often occurs if you are coming from another school), they are stuck. The rotating schedule could be good, but there are days when the kids have hours of study hall (and many just watch videos). We are paying 40K for this! The school is more focused on whether the kids are having a good time socially than the academics, which are outdated, particularly in the liberal arts. Many of the teachers are hard to find--this is a comment we hear over and over from parents. Overall, our experience in the public schools was far superior, with better teaching and interactions. And the killer is that their curriculum does not match other schools so it will be very difficult to move to another school (i.e. to go back to public school). I rue the day we decided to send my daughter here."
