Worst middle school in the nation. Parents, do not send your children here. It is very unsafe. There's lack of leadership and teaching. Adults don't care in this school.
this school is the worst my son was harrased and bullied and i dont recomend this school its the worst and i hope one day they can run the school as a normal school the kids are wild and crazy and a sewer stinch up in that school and i rate this school none the worse school to put your kid in !!11>:(
Holmes is a pretty good school. They are locking down on the hallways and I think that they are getting better and better. Also there test scores are amazing and Boude Storey or anyother school can bet them. There motto is Top 5 and thats what they are I am proud to say my child gose to Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. High School.

horrible school i hate it and it needs to be shut down idmmediatley they have no respect to other adults i think boude storey is much better than o.w. holmes
After having a meeting with the vice principle, Mr Warfield and with five (5) of the seven (7) teachers that my son has, I was somewhat disturbed by what I was told. Coming from a New England state, things are much different here. Monitors in the halls is a must. These children do not have any respect for authority. My child comes from a school where respect is the first thing they must learn if not already have. Parents are very much involved with what their children are learning. After spending some time watching these children, quite a few should be banned from any school that they attend until the parents get a clear understanding of what their responsibilities are. No teacher should have to put up with any child jumping in their face because they don't like something that was said or how a teacher looks at them.
Holmes is an okay school it could be a lot better if the school board gave more funds, if it was kept cleaner, and if there were more rules and hall monitors. there needs to be more after school programs and more positive activities for the children.
Holmes is a good school with caring teachers and students. However, parent support is lacking.
