I am a former student of Holly Springs High School. While attending there I only had a handful of teachers that actually taught. From what I heard from current students the teachers are not any better. The Administration focuses more on extracurricular than academics. While attending 'Holly Hi' basketball was the main concern instead of academics. They allow their athletes to participate in sports even though their grades aren't meeting the requirements.
I personally don't think this is a good school. The lack of books for the students to take home makes it impossible for them to study or do homework. The retention rates are way to high and the teachers are more focused on enforcing the dress code than reinforcing positive education. There are some teachers that are doing a great job and to those i say thank you.
