Welcome to Holland Middle School!  Holland has been serving the community of Baldwin Park as a middle school/junior high since 1953. We are committed to serving the needs of our middle school students and to using the district and state standards as a basis for our teaching.   During the 2015 school year, Holland was recognized by the California Department of Education with a Gold Ribbon.  The focus of the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award is to recognize California schools that have made tremendous gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education for all students, including English learners. Additionally, Holland was recognized with the Title I Academic Achievement Award. Lastly, Holland was also recognized with a Golden Bell by the California School Board Association.  Each of these awards are centered on science instruction and development of science curriculum. 


Holland is committed to the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program.  AVID is a heavily researched based program designed to teach students the necessary skills for college and career success. 


Additionally, Holland Middle school is now partnered with Project Lead the Way.  Project Lead The Way is the nation's leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. Through world-class K-12 curriculum, high-quality teacher professional development, and outstanding partnerships, PLTW is helping students develop the skills needed to succeed in the global economy.  We are currently offering Design and Modeling this year.  We will offer Automation and Robotics and Computer Science next year.  This program is a college pathway with our local college connection being Cal Poly Pomona. 


We are working hard to create a challenging curriculum that addresses the developmental, academic, social and emotional needs of our diverse student population. We hope this website provides a snapshot of our school and the many wonderful things happening here.  We are looking forward to an exciting year and welcome you to be part of our learning community.  Your involvement does make a difference.
