The heart of any community is the school. Never has that been as true as it is in the Holtville/Slapout Community. This white stucco Spanish styled school was built in 1929 and soon breathed life into this rural community of Elmore County by assisting the farming community and training future generations of farmers. Now Holtville High School offers 72 academic courses, including advanced placement and dual enrollment classes, while still supporting the agricultural/technical interests for the over 475 students in the 9-12 grades. The Holtville Bulldogs support a busy athletic department: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, dance, football, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and wrestling.
