Oliver Wendell Holmes Junior High School Ratings & Reviews

I agree with the last parent comment. My children have come home crying almost everyday because they feel that they do not fit in and they are being bullied. I have brought this up to the principle and vice principle and nothing has happened. my children are getting notes in their lockers that are calling them inappropriate language. I am transferring them to Harper Jr. High. That is a good school.

Holmes can be a good school, but they do not communicate good with the students. They are good academically but not when it comes to students have problems with other students, teachers, etc. The councilors (psychiatrists) are not that great either, they simply cannot solve the children's problems but think they can. I do not recommend this school, they give to much homework compared to many other schools. And this is an average school. I have had my kids come home crying and end up eating by themselves because of the teachers and students there. Like I said I DO NOT recommend this school, I am transferring my kids to another school. The teachers pick favorites, and many kids smuggle and sell drugs there. It is NOT a good school. All the other schools in davis are WAY better, kinder, safer, more including, and I love the other schools, that's where I'm putting my kids.

Holmes is an all-around excellent school. The academics are top notch--as one would expect in Davis. Teachers are enthusiastic, give interesting assignments that require creative thinking, rather than rote learning.They offer several electives such as robotics/computer programming, multimedia, and art. However, there is a lot of homework. I've heard no complaints from my 8th grader about bullying. The kids seem nice. This is a well-run school.

I moved to davis in 8th grade. The counselor at Holmes sent me to a phycologist because he didn't believe my description of my previous school. He didn't think any school could be that bad. I soon came to realize that Davis schools were so much better than other schools, that many staff and students simply didn't understand how good they had it. They lived in a happy fantasy. I moved back to Davis after going to college out of state so my kids could attend Davis schools. My Holmes experience was that good.

This school is absolutely faboulous. They have a great core curriculum and the students are not only taught advanced material that not even the college preps can claim the prepare, but it also teaches response ability. To top it off the staff is top of the line. I've never seen such devoted human beings, they really strive to make these childrens lives reach their potential to the max!
