Holmes Middle School is amazing. I go there now. The teachers know what they're doing and are nice. The band program is exceptional. There are lots of extracurricular activities and the school consistently scores well on state tests. The school is safe with hardly any fights or drug problems. Go there, and you'll be happy you did.
Holmes is not even one of ten of Colorado's top middle schools I do not believe the school is so great but I know the teachers are.
Holmes really prepared my daughter for high school. The teachers are great and really care about the kids!
Holmes is such a great school!!! Our teachers are committed to giving the best education possible, and the school is a clean, safe environment.
Holmes is an excellent school. It consistently scores in tests as one of the best middle schools in the city and state compared to similar schools. The teachers are committed to helping the students learn and improve. They recently overwhelmingly voted to use money, they could have had as a bonus, for computers the school needs and programs to help students. Most of the sports are no-cut, meaning all those who want are accepted on the teams. There's also math, science, history, yearbook, etc. activities. Communication between staff and parents is excellent, and both staff and parents work to make it even better.
I think that Holmes is a good school, and most of the teachers are good. I think whoever wrote the pervious comment should take a closer look at how many teachers really teach and ignore the very few that don't excatly know what they are doing.
I think Holmes is a great school for me! I'm social but I mantain a semi straight A student. The teachers are very understanding and know what they're teaching! I love all the extracurriculars they have, too. I'm an editor of this years yearbook and I will hopfully will make the basketball team again this year!
Holmes biggest problem is that it has a number teachers who do not teach, lots of kids don't learn there and are pushed into high school without a solid education. Myself and number of parents I have talked to with kids in Holmes all have consistent comments about how this school seems to get more then its share of bad teachers (those that swear at kids, fall asleep in class, tell about their day and don't teach, etc.). If you are lucky to get a good teacher there seems to be little complaints, but the odds do seem to be against you.
