Holland High School

Summary:

Holland High School is a public high school serving grades 8-12 with a total enrollment of 962 students. The school is part of the Holland City School District, which is ranked 333 out of 606 districts in Michigan and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

One of the key strengths of Holland High School is its diverse student population, with a racial composition of 32.95% White, 8% African American, 49.69% Hispanic, 4.26% Asian, and 5.09% other races. This diversity is notably higher than nearby schools like Hamilton High School and Zeeland West High School, which tend to have a majority White student population. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is generally lower than the state and nearby school averages. For example, only 37.6% of 11th-grade students were proficient or better in M-Step/Science, compared to the state average of 39%.

Additionally, Holland High School has seen a decline in its four-year graduation rate, dropping from 89.2% in 2019-2020 to 71.9% in 2022-2023. Correspondingly, the school's dropout rate has increased from 6.2% in 2018-2019 to 13.5% in 2022-2023, which is significantly higher than the state average. The school also faces challenges with chronic absenteeism, with 31.1% of students being chronically absent in 2022-2023, compared to 17.5% at Hamilton High School and 10.2% at Zeeland West High School. These trends suggest that Holland High School may need to implement targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes and address the unique needs of its diverse student population.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
