Holly High School is a very good school, while focusing on academics and sport opportunities. Holly High School provides many AP classes and honors classes, which are very helpful for the students. Majority of the teachers are nice and qualified for the classes they teach, they are always willing to help students and provide good explanations for any student's question. The administration is very good and is always looking out for the best with their students, they always make safety a priority and keep the students prepared for any situation. Sports at Holly High are very good and many students participate and succeed in the sports provided. The Fine Arts programs also excel and continuously score high in their Festival competitions. Overall, Holly High School is a good school when thinking of the academics and programs, the students may not be as great.
I really enjoyed going to Holly High School. I went to another school for elementary school, but when I moved to Holly everyone was very friendly and welcoming. My transition to a new school was much easier than I had expected. Every teacher I had seemed to enjoy their job and really care about their students, so I knew that if I ever had an issue I had many trusted adults that I could go to if I needed it. The only changes that I would make to the school is some of the extracurricular activities. There are many clubs and programs, so one can always find something that they are interested in; however, some of the coaches who run some of the sports seem to care more about the sport than the athletes. Overall, Holly High School is a very friendly and supportive place.
