I worked at Mt. Holly Middle many years ago, before the current administrators and many teachers came in. Mt. Holly reminded me of my hometown. I loved the fact that everyone was down to earth and wanted to help. The school had some tough times for a while, but I've heard nothing but great things about it. From the inside, I can tell you that I was pleased with everyone's efforts to challenge students in various aspects. And yes, Mrs. Van Der Meid--and most everyone--assigned homework nightly! MHMS is a great school!

Agreeing with Mrs Van Der Meid, This school does challenge every student whether they are slower at learning or very advanced. As a parent of an AG child I have had the privelige of working with Mrs. Van Der Meid who was very helpful and kept communicating with me throughout the school year about my childs progress. This school has alot of technology and innovating ideas that they utilize to give the children all opertunities to learn. As a parent I am very glad that my child is able to attend a school that is actually challenging them. Even slower learning children need to be challenged in order to learn. I have no doubt in my mind that they would make every effort to help any child no matter what their difficulties may be.

In response to the note dated June 2, 2007, my daughter has homework most every night. She is receiving challenging work throughout the day and I see her progress regularly through communication from each of her teachers. I have been impressed with the regular communication from the leadership (principal and teachers) and enjoy the positive reinforcement in the local newspapers of honor roll students, activities, awards, etc. I am honored to know that my child is receiving a good education from teachers who care about her success.

The previous reviewer's statement about no homework is completely inaccurate. I assign homework every single night except Fridays. It is also an inaccurate and insulting statement to say that it caters to 'slow' children. My 6th graders have read Maya Angelou, e.e. cummings, Shakespearean Sonnets and have learned the same literary terms that are the 9th grade teachers at East Gaston covers. Our math students have completed the 6th grade book in one semester and are well into the 7th grade book. Please know that we are committed to meeting every child's learning needs.

Mount Holly middle school caters to the average/slower child. There are no homework assignments because most students were not doing it so they decided all work would only be done in school. I feel homework should be given to reinforce what the student had learned and also so the parent can see what is being learned. Also the teacher/parent communication is not good. I feel that my 8th grade child learned how to be lazy this year and am worried that high school will be a shock for him.
