Holly ridge is an amazing school. They help prevent bullying and have amazing sports and club programs and all the electives you could want. The teaching is amazing and you really want your kid in that school.
Holly Ridge Middle School is at best a mediocre school,especially compared to other schools in the areas like Holly Grove. I find the worst features there(I went there for all 3 years of Middle School as a student) is that the staff is extremely strict on their rules. I once did gave my friend a pretty hard high five and one of the assistant principals threatened us both to detention. To this day, I still don't know what was up with that assistant principal. Anyway, other things that were downgrading were the services and the general low funding you saw at the school. For example, we still had computers from the 90s and none of our outdoor facilities had any type of lighting system. Things like this drive me to give a negative score for this school.
This school is amazing. Except for the assistant principals..I think they can be SUPER strict at times... Bullying is a major concern for me.. I was bullied all year in 6th grade im currently a 7th grader . (:
Im an upcoming 7th grade student at Holly Ridge and I can say first hand that the school is very safe and focused on learning. The principal, Mr. Pittman is really nice but, I cant say that for the assistant principals. I also have to say that I have to go to this school all the way from Garner and the teachers aren't all that nice as people say they are. Im just hoping my 7th grade year isn't like my 6th.
