14 Parent Reviews for Holly Springs Elementary School

My son went to this school and despite all we heard about the excellence of Wake County schools we did not find it up to the quality we were used to. Also found the office staff extremely cold and not at all interested in parent involvement in the school. I am confused by the high rating considering ...  Read more

I love this school. My son has gone here for 2 yrs now. We have lived in Hudson County , Nj and Las Vegas . This is by far the best experience. The staff is friendly and my son is genuinely happy here. The only complaint is the school food but that's an issue nation wide. They get a great education for ...  Read more

Small school feel, they do a tremendous amount for the kids. Always have family activities throughout the year. We know everyone in the office by first name. They are all extremely nice and will go out of their way to ensure the kids are learning in a safe environment.

The Principal, Mr. Harris runs a very tight ship and that carries down to all areas - including the car pool line. I have to completely ...  Read more

They do a lot that doesn't make sense. The car pool is a mess, all the do is constantly wave at everyone to pull up even when the cars are stopped and you cant pull up. When at the cross walk to let a child pass the teacher who is suppose to be the crossing guard is waving me to pull forward anyway. ...  Read more

WOW! What a wonderful school. New asst Principal is o.k. This school is loaded with great teachers. Like Ms. M. in 1st, Ms. P. in 2nd, and Mr. T. in 3rd. Overall, great school.

We moved from NYC to Holly Springs Elem. mid-year in Kindergarten and I was worried what might happen to my child's education when moving south. Well, it has been amazing. My son has thrived in this school and his teachers and all the Specials they have are 100x better than what we had experienced in ...  Read more
