Holderness Central School is a small rural public school in the north central part of the state. The school is governed by its own school board and is part of the SAU #48 school district. Over the past several years, the school demographics have changed slightly as the student enrollment has been on a steady decline. However, the current enrollment has remained steady over two years. These current trends have not impacted the long term history of community support for the school and the educational programs offered to the students.
