Both of my grandsons went to Holcomb Bridge. The eldest now attends Centennial High School. Great school, low teacher/student ratio and excellent parent involvement. Our family bought a home specifically to be in HBMS district.

It's a good school. I am personally a student, and although some school policies are ridiculous, it is better than the majority of the ones in Georgia.
