A Message From Mr. Root

Holgate High/Middle School provides a safe and enriching educational experience for all students grades six through twelve. Located in Holgate Village, Holgate Local Schools are supported by a community that is actively involved in helping students grow through their critically formative years. This is displayed every day through conversation, coaching, mentoring and showing up to support the Tigers in all the many events.

The caring teachers at Holgate work to provide opportunities for the development of skills, knowledge, and self-confidence to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. Middle Schoolers are provided such opportunities by studying the core subjects of Math, Science, Art, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing. They may elect to explore connections between these core subjects via S.T.E.A.M. or select other electives such as; Spanish, Band, Chorus, Life Skills, and Agricultural Science. High School students have numerous opportunities to explore their interests. Videography, Career Prep, Anatomy, N.O.V.A., Agricultural Science, Adulting 101, College Credit Plus, and School to Work are just a few of the offered electives. Each elective helps prepare students for their journey after high school.

Teachers and coaches play a crucial role in providing opportunities for students to gain self-confidence and learn to overcome adversity. Holgate Schools houses two gyms, a full stage for indoor performances, a field house, and ample outdoor space for practices, performances and competitions of all kinds. The diverse extra-curricular and athletic offerings provide leadership and team building experiences that help students to further grow into independent and productive citizens. 

Families new to the area are encouraged to explore Holgate Local Schools and complete the open enrollment application. Current and new families are welcome to contact us for any assistance.  It is an honor to lead a school with such a well-rounded focus on every student and I look forward to working with you.
