Holly Grove Middle is one of the most welcoming schools I have ever been in. The principal is always visible in the school and sets a high standard for teachers and parents to embrace the middle school concept of treating all students fairly. The teachers at HG are top quality, supportive, and actually enjoy working with teens. There are a lot of school activities and the PTA is very active. My children love this school and actually look forward to going to school this year!

We are (and have been) so please with HGMS. Great principal, great teachers supported by an involved group of parents.

3 out of 10 because there is a lot of drug related problems and there are many fights.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
