The HonorRoll recognizes and commends outstanding achievement and effort in the academic program. Holderness School recognizes that each student's growth and progress is complex. Quarterly comments written by faculty better reflect the unique path traveled by each student, and the HonorRoll and Effort HonorRoll are simplified but significant markers of the engagement of our students in the most recent marking interval.
Coach Alan Smarse has been on the slopes with Holderness students for over two decades. He has helped the Holderness Freeski and Snowboarding program evolve over the years with the coaching philosophy that our mission is to support our student-athletes to the highest level achievable, while setting them up to gain entry into the colleges of their choice. Simply stated, our coaching philosophy is to be better today then we were yesterday. Read on for some history and for the latest evolution.
Building community is complicated. Diversity makes a community richer and more resilient. But in order for everyone to work toward a common goal, some assimilation is necessary. What’s the best balance? What’s the best way to support a diverse community and help all to feel known and respected? At Holderness, affinity groups might be the answer.
