This is my sons first year(6th grade) at Holmes and he has really excelled at this school. He's in the magnet program and yes lots of homework and projects, but it's expected, after all it is middle school. He does have an I.E.P and the RSP teacher is the best. Answers my email and returns calls in ...  Read more

The Humanities Magnet program seems very good. The grading system is very confusing and complicated. It is easy for teachers and students to make mistakes and the teachers are not the ones to back down on this. (They will blame the students over their own mistakes.) . Middle school is a rough time ...  Read more

Love this school! My second child is in 7th grade and we chose Holmes based on the positive experiences we had when our first child attended. Best kept secret in the valley! Great teachers and an amazing new Principal!

My child is in 8th grade at Holmes, and it's been a great experience overall. Some bullying in 6th grade, but it's almost disappeared entirely by 8th grade. I don't know what the 1/23/12 poster is talking about. Jeans are a part of the written dress code; my child wears them every single day. Also, ...  Read more

Just might possibly be the worst school ever. Scratch that, it is DEFINITELY the worst school ever! I came from private school (big mistake) and only lasted a day until I was offered drugs, bullied, and yelled at by a teacher (profanities). I tried the next day, and it was even worse. I had a kid in ...  Read more

I am digusted with the treatment of my child! This is my third child to go through this school. Last year my daughter had the best English teacher and the best Algebra teacher. I was hoping that my youngest would have the same experience. Instead, his 7th grade year has been disappointing and traumatizing! ...  Read more
