My two daughters attended Holabird Middle 6 years ago. The school still has issues. The administration was then the worst that I have ever experienced. Coming from Norwood Elementary going into Holabird was a shock experience for me and my children. There were some teachers that were excellent and dedicated, while others just were collecting a pay check. Bullying was a big issue. Parents really need to be more involved. All parents, not just the good kids. The school is only as good as the partnership and commitment behind it to make it a quality school. I had to move out of the area for my youngest to stop being bullied in high school. The area needs character programs and accountability plus more. Holabird is the school that makes or does not make well prepared high school students. That school is the missing link that needs fixing from the teaching, administration to providing after school programs to the students to keep them out of trouble.

I can say that Hollabird if not the best is one of the best middle school in baltimore county. My son was used to be on their ESOL program. I could really say and attest that my son had a major improvements to all of his subjects, especially in Math and English. He used to have low grades in Math but he was put into a program that helped him improve his grades. Going to Hollabird Middle is really rewarding not only for our son but to us his parents. Thank you ESOL, the reason why my son went to Hollabird insteaf of his home school. Thank you Hollabird for a great job of molding my son to become a much better student and as a person, building up his confidence and self-esteem and most of all the feelng of belongingness, for being a foreign to this country. Thank you and more power!

I love Holabird Middle, is one of the best school I've ever been to. Although I can't tell much about the "being a normal student" subject, because I was in the ESOL program, and thanks to that, there were many things different with my schedule and everything else. But besides that, Holabird is an excellent school. It has great teachers and I've enjoyed my middle school years there.

Worst school my children have ever attended. Staff DO NOT CARE. The staff on a whole are simply there for a check, from the secretary to the principal there is no such word as team. They do not encourage parental involvment. The bullying is terrible and i know for a fact that they are not reported to the school district as they must be according to the law. They in no way encourage the children, there is no motivation for students. DO NOT send your kids here, their grades will go down, just google the school and youll be amazed at what you find........

The administration is clueless. Students hide in the bathrooms, there are several fights a day. The staff believes there are no bully's in the school, yet many children complain about the daily abuse they face. Staff does not attempt to contact parents until they are in over their heads with problems.

Well I don't have a childern yet to attened Holabird but i know how good this school is. I my self went there for only one year, that was enough for me too see how much this school cares about there students. They have every thing a child would need even a child with a disablety. There sports department is great, music exalent.Music was my favorite subject.Even though I couldnt sing Holabird still let me cause I enjoyed my self. They just need more parents involed with all the school acttivies also have the parents more informed with there childs behaviore, but not just the bad behaviore. Cause i could tell you I was one of the bad ones and,they gave me a chance. Well I think to maney chances but that is Holabird thats what they do give your child a chance.Thank you for giveing me a chance.

I believe Holabird is a good school in many ways. Some downfalls are special education. They do not handle special needs well at all. I believe the school is very quick to act on students who misbehave which is excellent.
