I am a student at Holicong middle school and it is great! Halls are not to small they are huge, it is just that more kids are going to the same places at the same times. It is good how it is! The teachers I know of are super nice and teach really well. They all know what they are talking about, they are very knowledgable. The lockers are kind of small but they fit what you need it to. This school is the best!
We are fortunate that Holicong is here. It is a school that has tons of opportunities... you have to jump in and take advantage. This school gives you the solid high standards you need to achieve in high school. Our kids are all different but thrive at the top universities now because of Holicong and CB East, with more coming through now. Life is what you make of it - you can complain and not join in, or you can encourage your kids to be the best they can be. Embrace this educational jewel in your town. Save your private school dollars for your ivy league education.
the halls in this school are always over crowded. especially at the end of the day. halls need to be bigger so their lockers before the buses leave
this school is so fake. everyone that goes her is so insecure of themselves and dont know who they are.
HOlicong is just OK. The teachers are not that well educated, mostly having graduated from low end State schoools. The extraccurricular activites, especially the sports teams are over crowded and the average athlete has no where to fit in. The music program and chorus as well as the theatre program is great.
this school is one of the best schools and is part of the number one school district in PA. My kids love it here and I love it too! there are so many sports and activities for my kids to get involved with and to develope a great future that lies ahead of them.
Holicong is a great school, but the students who attend it are lacking. They are overly concerned about appearance. The curriculum is considerably slow compared to other schools in the area. The is very little cultural diversity. Because of that students have a narrow understanding of other cultures and a somewhat racist outlook. The students are also book smart, but lack common sense. They have no view of the real world, and feel that everything will be handed to them on a platter. The school is great, but more should be done to education the student body more than intellectually. Because of the area (many rich families) more should be done to teach common sense because it is lacking.
Holicong is a phenominal school with many great teachers and programs. The music department is amazing and produce quality performances for every concert. They have amazing academics and the teachers engage and do their best to interest students. It is an extremely safe school and most students and all of the staff are very positive and friendly. Holicong is a great school that I recommend to anyone who is looking at schools in the greater Philadelphia area.
Holicong is the best school ever. There are so many things to do. Team teaching (A group of students with a set of teachers in science, math, social studies, English, and Reading) is a great thing. Most students are way above state levels and all to well on the PSSA's. The many things do do after school like choirs, bands, and sports. Overall, Holicong is the best place to be!
School is overcrowded. Sufficient education, but many teachers do not explain what they teach--i.e. students are required to memorize facts but not their explanations, so that the student can actually figure them out on their own in the future. Music department lacks funding, though we have very good band/choir directors. Overall Holicong is 6 out of 10.
