Holly Springs is truly a "School of Excellence!" I have been thrilled with the education that my 1st grader has receieved the last 2 years. The teachers, administrators, and other staff are great! As a former teacher in the D.C. School System, I can relate to how difficult the task of teaching can be at times. So I have much admiration for the teachers and I appreciate all their hard work, sacrifice, and dedication. Kelly Robinson
