Holly Grove Middle School 2

Posted April 26, 2015

Holly Grove started out as a great school for my son. The teachers were helpful, welcoming, and cheerful with a great attitude. Then everything changed when a teacher that came over from Fuquay-Varina Middle started working there. The teachers went from cheerful and helpful to being verbally abusive and mentally draining for my son. To give a great example, the schools motto is, "Every child will succeed" well, a teacher told my son, "Well, that doesn't mean that every child will succeed at success, some kids may succeed at failure..." Now, if you have become so frustrated with your job that you feel the need to say this to a student, maybe it is time for a new profession.

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.
