I am Holmes Proud

...because

...our campus layout is original, giving it a feel of a small community college with the separated buildings and  beautiful landscape.

...our students have hearts of gold. They work hard and strive to move forward in a positive direction to prepare for college and beyond despite the a unique story each one holds.

…we teach a diverse community of learners and educators. Cultural diversity is embraced by both students and staff daily.

…our ESL department services students from around the world, currently serves students from 15 different languages.

…our students are very supportive of their peers with disabilities and embrace their differences.

…our teachers see themselves in so many of their students. Our teachers work very hard, spending hours attending meetings, planning sessions, tutoring and helping both students and other staff. The teachers are truly a support for one another.
