The school and district have strong commitments to authentic learning experiences and continue to look for ways to engage students in unique and exciting courses that will foster independence, resilience and perseverance. Holliston High School is always looking to increase student voice and agency so that students take ownership over their learning and see the classroom environment strongly connected to the community through meaningful and relevant work.
