Holly Area School District Reviews

16 reviews
All Categories
The Holly Area School District strives for excellence despite being relatively under-funded. Many of the teachers are passionate, the sports programs hardworking, and the classes challenging. However, student to teacher ratios are often very large, translating into poor support for the students that need it most. Resources (like textbooks) are often outdated, depending on the class. AP classes are offered, but a few of the most popular ones (across the country) are taught online, rather than in-classroom.

The one thing I like about Holly Schools is the teachers. They are all so supportive and concerned with your success. I've built many personal and strong relationships that have helped me succeed in school and in life. The academics are challenging, but the teachers will also do everything to help you succeed while challenging you as well. The students of Holly though, are the reason I did not rate it higher. I've had too many friends who have been bullied, even myself, and there was little to no action taken against it. While there is said to be a zero tolerance policy, it is not always enforced, which is highly disappointing. The reason I've connected so much with my teachers is because they are the reason that I can get through most days in the building without feeling threatened or judged.
Holly Area Schools provide a well rounded education for its students. The true heart of the Holly Area School District is its teaching staff. The teachers at Holly truly care for there students and always give the the best opportunity to succeed. Holly offers many after school programs and has continually excelled in its sports department. The facilities are well maintained, if the school is not new than it has been recently been renovated to offer the best learning environments for its children.
