I transferred to Holly Springs High School my Sophomore year. I immediately felt welcomed by my fellow cheerleaders that has connected with me over social media prior to my arrival in North Carolina. My overall experience has been very positive, I have enjoyed the teachers and feel like all the support I need is available to me for everything from course selection to college prep questions. I am looking forward to my Senior year and have no regrets about my choice to attend Holly Springs High School!
Review Holly Springs High School
Overall, I truly enjoyed the arts programs. Being a theatre student, it was great to tackle such complex shows that even working theatres were wary of. The department is so inviting and friendly which definitely increased the overall experience at this school. If theatre isn't the right fit for you, there are SO many other programs and clubs to join. From debate to latin to even fashion club, there are plenty of clubs to participate and get involved in!
Honestly I met some of the greatest friends at this school. Every school has its fair share of bad teachers, but the majority at Holly Springs High School were genuinely interested in furthering out education. The school is also in the middle of everything so their is a lot to do! Loved Holly Springs High, it has made all the difference.
