  • Music Dept Award
    The Holland Patent Central School District has been named a Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation for the 2021 calendar year. It is the fifth consecutive year in which the district has earned this distinction. The Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition

    Math Challenge
    Holland Patent Students Glen Gaige and James Gillett were coached by our middle school math teacher Mr. Richard Zacek at the 2021 AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition at Griffiss Institute in Rome.  The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Rome, NY, hosts a Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Challenge every year during spring break. The challenge is developed and led by scientists and engineers at AFRL. Each Challenge Team consists of two students and a teacher. Schools from the surrounding community participate in the Challenge. This year's STEM Challenge consisted of three parts. The first part was to conduct research into the domain of the challenge problem - Reinforcement Learning, Wargaming, Robotics, Game Theory and Decision Theory. The second was the use of a model to derive an optimal, generalized solution to a particular scenario. The third part was to provide a presentation of their work to several judges.
    The teams had one week to complete the challenge.   

    A big thank you to Mr. Zacek for taking on the coaching role and to both students for giving up your spring break to improve your education!
