Neither one of my children has ever had any problems with bullying, and the teachers are 100% committed to giving the students the best possible experience.

The bullying here was so rough we switched schools. The principle was not helpful. The super intendant was a joke. Blew off my concern for my daughter. Eventually switched districts. I believe the only school I could recommend is the year around school.

Love this school. The teachers are AWESOME!!!! Student progress is unbelievable. My child has made so much growth since he has been there. Moved from Centerville and this school has so much more to offer. So glad I made the switch.

This school is the biggest joke ever! lol They tried to intimidate someone with court if your child has a disease and misses too much school. They "misplace" doctors notes and they never try to resolve the problem like an intervention, counseling, etc like they are supposed to do before they sent it to the court. They just try to scare you with a dumb court date instead of understanding the problem and fixing it. Well I got news for this school and the school board...Court didn't do anything because my child is sick and has a disease. they were very understanding unlike this school was! Good try though C F Holliday;) Also, the new principal does nothing to fix issues like bullying and assault. Someone should really look into that fact and investigate why she isn't doing anything about things like this! She is joke just like the school she works for. I will be moving my child out of west carrollton school district next year, But next they try to intimidate someone with court...i'm hiring a lawyer:)

This school has made so many improvements! With a new princial came great change. The test scores have risen so much in only one year. The school is being updated. The walls are lined with student data so they can see their progress and where they need to be. It is refreshing.

Horrible school, horrible with race relations, I am so sorry that I sent my son there, we are looking to relocate simply based on the terrible policies of the school, the principle does not respond to concerns that I have had, I even had one teacher tell me it was not her job to teach my son math....

My child goes there and she loves it! The teachers are great, nice and just nice to be around. Shes in the gifted classes and they do great to help them prepare for the OAA tests. They are a great school and they deserve a 5/5 star review! The principalis nice and strict. Thats a great thing. I sent all of my chidren there and they loved it there. My youngest is going to the middle school now and she misses C.F Holliday ever day! She was there from 1st grade to 5 th grade! all my chlidern went there that young and all missed it when they moved on. C.F Holliday will always be in our heart!! Thank You C.F Holliday teachers and staff you are much appercaite!!

Worst school my child ever attended. School is also very much behind academically. They do not offer any challenges for the children that are somewhat ahead or 'bored'. I am planning to have my child either enrolled in a private school or the yearound school next school year.

My children were former students at C.F Holliday and I am SO GLAD that they are now in a private school and not attending C.F. Holliday this year. My children were behind academically when they transferred to a private school from C.F. Holliday. Most of the teachers were great but some of them had their own personal issues which they brought to school with them. That is not being good role models for our children. Movies were another issue at this school. They seem to watch a great deal of pg rated movies instead of classwork. My children are so much happier now that they are not at C.F. Holliday anymore. I would not recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to succeed in middle school and beyond.

I love Mrs. Hoskins (the principal.) I have found her to be very open and communcative. I also have liked most of the teachers -- with the exception of the 4th grade staff. I like the academic programs and how well they work with my daughter. The school has music, art and gym once a week - not great but not horrible either. The PTA is very involved in the school. All in all, I really like C.F. and wouldn't hesitate to tell someone else it is a good school.

I am a student at C.F. Holliday. I love my teacher, he is awesome. I really miss Mrs. Thiel. I also miss not having plays anymore like we used to when Mrs. Tobey was there. I have a lot of friends at C.F. Holliday. The Secretary is not very friendly to the students or their parents. I am a christian and am taught morals and values at home by my mom and dad and I don't see a lot of that at C.F. Holliday.

Hi, I am a parent who has had one child go through CF Holliday and two more going through it now. I truly do believe that CF Holliday is a great school. All of the teachers that I have encountered have been very caring and concerned about my childrens education. As far as discipline I loved Mrs. Thiel, the new Principal Mrs. Hoskins is very well too. granted she doesnt have Mrs. Thiels experience but that takes time as we all know. I can tell you this if you have a problem and you let Mrs. Hoskins know she will take action in a professional manner. I think Mrs. Henry is the greatest secretary I have encountered throughout the West Carrollton District she is very informed and always on top of everything. The only thing bad is the food which the school itself has no control over.

This school is a good school. I may not be a parent, I am a former student. And I moved because of my dad's job. I have had nothing but positive experiences with C.F. Holliday. It is not different than any other school. True some children work better in different enviroments than others. But overall I think the success depends on the mind set of the child. This school was the ground work for my success and I thank all my teachers for their work. I loved going there and miss it with all my heart. I am a good student. Mostly A's and some B's. And I work hard. So please I ask that you don't blame this school...for it is the best I have been to.

This school is ok, I would not say it is good! My child becomes easily bored with the material they are learning, and has learned more foul language and other bad things in a year than most would learn in a lifetime! Has come home crying because of being bullied both on the playground and the bus, and has begged me to move us away. I have seen a really big change in my child this last year in their attitude. And I don't understand why this school unlike all the other West Carrollton schools doesn't do anything outside of school, such as skating parties and things to pull the kids together. Seems to be the only school in the area that doesn't do anything! I'm not very pleased with this school this year. Although their teacher does seem very good, I still don't see the overall school as 'good'!

We are not pleased with this school in any way. We are planning on moving ASAP! Seems to be the worst school in the area both academically and Extracurricularly!
