You could not ask for a better ensemble of teachers and staff. The population is diverse and respectful - students come from all backgrounds and interact with one another regardless of their abilities or differences. There is a high standard for academic excellence and model student behavior, and this is prevalent in the everyday learning environment. The school is equipped with cutting edge educational technology, and digital learning is the norm. I highly suggest this school to anyone considering a move to this district in the HCPS system.

HOLMAN MS has been the MOST AMAZING, BEST experience for both my children-pinch me :) My daughter was here when the school opened ; and now my son has been enjoying his time at HMS as well. Overall, the BEST teachers & administration anywhere! These teachers were 'hand selected' for this new school,and it shows! BOTH my kids have had ALL positive teacher experiences here; what an AMAZING SCHOOL! ANYtime we have had any issues, it was handled respectfully, & thoroughly. The TSA (Technology Student Association) chapter is top notch; being THE STATE CHAMPIONS 3 years in a row! Holman MS is truly blessed to have their TSA advisor; who has led schools to multiple state championships, and truly cares about his students. There is NOTHING negative to say about this school. To be honest, I wish I had the priviledge of attending such a top notch MS when I was younger. Finally, Dr. Fellowes' vision of HOLMAN being ;'THE PREMIER MIDDLE SCHOOL in the NATION' has already been accomplished, in my humble opinion. Attending HOLMAN is a PRIVILEDGE. Trying to match the top notch teachers, administration & programs in pointless.... it can't be done...you can try though... GO HOLMAN HUSKIES !!!!!

The best school experience we could have asked for. My child was in the first class to complete grades 6-8. Dr. Fellows and his staff have done an excellent job at every turn.

I went to Holman for the first 3 years it was open and all 3 years it was terrible my Algebra teacher was the meanest teacher I have ever had and she didn't even teach us everything we needed for the SOL, the teachers honestly were very mean all 3 years. Although I did enjoy some teachers that were nice, but honestly the administration took things way too out of hand. Somebody gave me the rest of their fries at lunch because they didn't want them so the administration instead of asking how I got them they just assumed I stole them from me so I got in school suspension for no reason and I asked if they could look at the security camera tapes but they said no because they had enough evidence to not need to check the tapes.

I love my school! It provides a nice, and safe learning environment, with lots of great teachers. To make matters even better, it is BRAND NEW!

Nice new building but lacks strong teaching. Also food is sometimes greasy. Also copies Hungry Creek. Js.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
