A Message from Our Principal

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,  

Welcome to the John P. Holland Charter School. On behalf of myself and the entire staff, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our fabulous school.

As I am sure you are aware, a lot of work goes into establishing such a vibrant, energized, and inspiring school culture. It will be our number one priority to ensure that we succeed in doing so. Some of the many strategies we will employ to accomplish this priority goal include:

  • Personalized and Individualized Instruction
  • Advocacy and Mentorship
  • Effective, Positive Communication  (Verbal and Non-Verbal)
  • Experiential, Project-Based, and Service Learning
  • Cultivating Kindness, Generosity, and Passion
  • Embracing Respect, Understanding, and Diversity
  • Celebrations, Community Events, and Fun  

The Student/Parent Handbook includes information that is important for parents/guardians and students to know. We hope that by presenting this information, everyone will understand the rules and expectations here at our school. Please keep this handbook for reference during the school year. If you have any questions with regard to the information contained in the handbook, please do not hesitate to call me.  

Again, welcome to what promises to be an exciting and productive school year.
