55 Parent Reviews for Holly Academy

My son attended Holly Academy from kindergarten through 8th grade. We made the commitment early on to drive him a significant distance at first because of the whole day kindergarten program and we continued because of the high academic standards, character program, and staff. I cannot say enough about ...  Read more

We loved kindergarten and our teacher last year, but first grade is a bit disappointing. The school took away one of the planned classrooms for this year, which resulted in large class sizes in small classrooms. The class sizes are larger than our local public school. There is no art, which we knew when ...  Read more

I'm not really understanding why parents have issues with the testing at the school. We put our kids here to learn. To be drilled, and have to work hard. Not just show up and pass. This is school is by choice. Each parent knows what this school is about before you send your child. Yes its hard, yes its ...  Read more

I agree with the testing comments however people need to realize that those are the standards that common core brings. Fight common core and the overbearing interference that government continues to bring upon our rights.

Changed to this school for the 2013 school year from a neighboring school district. WOW! We are happy and our daughter loves it, wants to go to school on weekends! The staff is always there to help and she is learning much more than she did last year. This school gets an A+ all around!!

I don't even want to give them 1 star! It's good until you have a problem. When you do have a problem, the staff does not want to get involved and could care less about your child. They do what ever they want because they are a charter school. If your kids get bullied, just ignore it because HA does! ...  Read more

I have not had any major issues with school. This is our 5th year here. Reading the other reviews has made me nervous for my children to reach middle school. My oldest is in 4th grade and I have been impressed thus far, no problems. I read these reviews and understand some of the concerns, just not sure ...  Read more

Test Year: 2013

Holly Academy
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
