    "Holmes High School is in the lower income part of Kentucky. Where I live is safe but not comfortable. Just like every school in the world, there is problems within the school. Many people believe that the school I attend is "ghetto" and "broke". In reality there is so much talent and ambition within my classmates. What makes my school unique is the pride we carry in being a student that goes hear. We prove to others that we are going to make it out of this place they call "ghetto" and help make it better."

    "The school I attend is Holmes High School. There is about 800 students that go here. Some of my teachers teach college prep classes for those who excel more than others, but the teachers treat every class the same. Most of our grading is through participation and test. We use books to learn from because my school cant afford advanced technology. The overall quality of our teachers has been good for the last two years. Most of the teachers we had only stayed for a year so we never had the opportunity to create a relationship with them. These past two years, there is teachers that does not teach my grade anymore but I always feel welcome to ask them for help whenever I need it."

    "I came into Holmes as a very introverted freshman. I literally only talked to 5 people on a regular basis. Holmes is where I met my best friend. Unfortunately, she moved to a different school, and during my sophomore year, I started to break out my shell. And now, as a junior, I try to be friends with a lot of people. At Holmes, maybe not all, but your teachers DO care about you. I am a full IB student (and by the way, Holmes is one of the very few school in the area that offers IB classes) and I would have never done it if I wasn't convinced by a teacher, who I had never even had as a teacher before! The teachers here, are ones who you would stay after school until 5 o clock just to chat and get to know each other. Holmes is also very diverse. We have MANY kids from Guatemala (and a few from Mexico) that are learning English. At first, I wanted nothing to with Holmes, but now, I would love to have a job offered to me in the future that would allow me to come back to teach"

    "For the four years that I had attended this school, the over all curriculum, teacher abilities to teach were constantly on the decline. The teachers had favoritism towards certain students giving them passes in certain classes when they shouldn't have passed at all. I was lied to about my actual class number, although I was in the top 25 I was told that I was 27 when I was 23 and should have graduated first, I didn't find out this face till after I graduated."
