"Celebrating our culture and diversity...We all smile in the same language."

Holmes International Humanities Magnet enrolls approximately 406 students in grades six to eight. The students at Holmes represents wide spectrum of cultural, academic, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. The student body reflects the great diversity of the Southern California region. This challenging microcosm mirrors the differences of our region and the world.

Holmes supports an atmosphere where cultural and ethnic diversity are prized, where academic challenge is expected and where the intrinsic worth of each child is recognized.

The curriculum and programs at Holmes International Humanities Magnet are aligned with State Standards and focus on world cultures, their literature, language, art, music, social customs and philosophy. Students develop an awareness of a global perspective, expand their understanding of world cultures and gain an appreciation of cultural diversity. This program promotes mutual respect, acceptance and understanding among cultural groups and provides opportunities for students to acquire knowledge, attitudes, and skills to live effectively in a diverse society.

The school's curriculum prepares students for their next level of education and imparts the desire for lifelong learning through an international humanities program. The program provides students with effective oral and written communication skills, teaches students to think conceptually, encourages students to share their artistic talent, prepares students to be effective problem solvers, and engages students to explore political, social and economic issues. We are committed to academic excellence and preparing every child with the skills necessary to succeed.
