Amount of homework: Agree

My child is in Kinder and the packet that is sent home is enough. We work on it all week and I know he is busy in school as well.

My experience with Holly Oak has been wonderful. the front desk ladies were very helpful during enrollment ensuring I had all the correct paperwork. The parent/teachers meeting at the begining of the year was very organized and informative. My child enjoys going to school and the staff is always expressing their concerns for safety.

All teachers do an outstanding job working with community members to provide students with a first class education.

Holly Oak up to 4th grade has some of the best teachers in the district. Unfortunately, at the 5th grade HO has no good teachers. So many parents have horrible stories about how grades dropped for their pervious Honor Roll students. Unfortunately, these teachers have tenure and the Principal cannot motivate them. It's a sad story for the lower grade teachers who work so hard to give our children the best education.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

They are lazy, especially 5th Grade Teachers! They don't give out homework. No enough test either. How would we know if kids are learning something?

5th Grade Classes, NO HOMEWORK - DISTRICT APPROVED IT! LAME! Principal is also useless! Can't take care of issues with his teachers!

Develops character: Strongly disagree

5th Grade teachers don't care, if students show work without giving credits for a test.

Holly Oak 5th Grade Teachers are horrible!!! Principal is useless!!! He doesn't do anything with parents' complaints. Teachers are more powerful than the principal! Why 5th Graders don't have homework? Why they don't have work in their Friday Folders? Why they don't have enough test weekly? Why do they watch a lot of videos in the classroom? Why their 5th Grade Teachers read a lot of chapter books in the class? Are our 5th Grade Students learning anything from their teachers? How would we know?? Especially with this Common Core Math implementation, 5th Grade Teachers not checking their work! Horrible School!!!

Something has gone wrong with our school. The new pricipal Mr. Hodgin is not encouraging reading skills and activities like the science fair and talent show. I am a 6th grader and proud to say that our school is awsome but down to the new principal. Up to Mr.corpus. Teachers are great but the subs are bad. Our school reenforces lots of rules and all but time for the kids to have some fun. I advise you to look up laurel wood for good rates. I think the rules should be changed up a bit and uh BETTER LUNCHES!!!!!

Holly Oak school has suffered when the previous principal moved to another school because the previous principal was very involved in speaking and working with parents. The school seems to need new care in ensuring a nurturing environment for both students and adults. This of course is only the review of one parent.
