Holly Oak Elementary School Reviews
need better 5th grade teachers
HO up to 4th grade has some of the best teachers in the district. Unfortunately, in 5th grade, HO has no good teachers. So many parents have horrible stories about how grades dropped for their previous Honor Roll students. Unfortunately, these teachers have tenure and the Principal cannot motivate them. It's a sad story for the lower grade teachers who work so hard to give our children the best education.
This is a good school with GREAT teachers, especially Ms. Battistella. She really goes above and beyond and is such a positive role model for kids. She implements healthy eating, exercise, and started a girls club where girls can get helpful advice and have a safe place to talk to someone.
