After finishing my freshman year at Holderness I'm really disappointed. The classes weren't challenging (though some of my peers seemed challenged probably a reflection of the generally lower level of student accepted at the school compared to other boarding prep schools) and I guess that if my parents had looked more closely they might have passed. The day student population seems especially weak at least in my class. And with five percent of students nationwide getting National Merit recognition and only one of Holdernesses students being recognized as a Commended student with no semi-finalists just slightly more than one percent of students I think that really says it all about the level. Private schools that really are college prep should be striving for 20% or more. I'll say it again. I'm really disappointed.
