Dear Parents and Community Members:
 
We are pleased to present the Annual Education Report (AER), which provides key information on the 2013-2014 educational progress for Holly High School.  The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws.  The school’s report contains information about student assessment, accountability and teacher quality.  If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Principal, Peter T. LoFiego at  (248) 328-3203 for assistance.
 
The AER is available for review electronically by clicking here.  A paper copy is available for review in the high school main office.
 
The state identifies some schools with the status of Reward, Focus or Priority. A Reward school is one that is outperforming other schools in achievement growth, or is performing better than other schools with similar student populations. A Focus school is one that has a large achievement gap in 30% of its student achievement scores. A Priority school is one whose achievement and growth is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state.
 
Holly High School is not presently classified in any of the previously listed categories. 

In 2013, a Quality Assurance Review Team for the prestigious AdvancED North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) recommended that Holly High School maintain its accreditation. This means the school is recognized across the nation as a quality educational environment.  Accreditation validates and supports Holly High School’s ongoing, overarching goal of improving student learning and provides a universal mark of quality.  Our school improvement plan will continue to focus on meeting the diverse needs of our stakeholders with emphasis in reading proficiency, writing skills and math proficiency. Our students and families are the ultimate beneficiaries of this rigorous process.

During the 2013-14 school year our students continued the steady achievement trends that Holly High School has seen over the last seven years.  During this time we have grown in our Advance Placement and online courses offerings.  Our school continues to reap the benefits of its partnership with Virtual High School (http://thevhscollaborative.org), offering a unique and challenging catalog of courses.  Our students have excelled by taking job embedded and college prep courses that we could not otherwise offer.  Online learning enhances a different set of skills to ensure that our students are prepared not only for the road that lies ahead, but are also properly skilled for the technological enhancements that will alter the landscape of education in their futures.
 
  1. New students are assigned to Holly High School by the Holly Area Schools Pupil Accounting Office following completion of 8th grade.
     
  2. Holly High School is fully accredited by NCA/AdvancEd (since 1948).  In 2013-14 we began a new five-year accreditation cycle.  The emphasis during our first year was to re-establish a systemic process for the evaluation and revision of the schools vision, mission and values.   Year one was focused on student, staff and administrative alignment.  Year two will integrate our community stakeholders into this process.  Our district has also begun the process of systems accreditation and will be moving away from individual building accreditations to a district wide accreditation.  That process is expected to take up to 24 months.  Currently, please refer to the School Improvement Plan (SIP) link on the district webpage, which will have our updated plan post by September 1.
     
  3. Holly High School does not currently operate any specialized schools.
     
  4. Holly High School has an aligned curriculum to meet the standards and benchmarks of the Michigan Merit Curriculum and Common Core Standards.  Copies of the curriculum may be found at the HAS District website.  The Holly Area Schools are also currently in year two, of a five-year plan, to house the entire districts curriculum in one location (web based).
