The largest middle school in Rockingham County, Holmes offers numerous enrichment classes, including Band, Bible History, Chorus, General Music, Glee Club, Keyboarding, Spanish, Social Studies, Technology Exploration, and Visual Arts. The school uses a block schedule that allows students more concentrated time in core subjects (English language arts, math, and science). Our curriculum is driven by state-mandated standards on which students are tested at the end of each school year. Students have access to technology through networked computers in classrooms, media center, and four computer labs, one with a flexible schedule. All rooms have telephones and internet access via the school system's wide area network.
Special School Events
Holmes holds band and chorus concerts during the year. A talent show featuring students and faculty is held every spring. Academic and athletic awards assemblies are held in the spring. Students compete for "most donations" in an annual canned food drive. Numerous after-school organizations are thriving at Holmes, including Battle of the Books, Yearbook, Student Council, Bible Club, Science Club, Computer Club, and Dance Team. The school's inclusion program offers a wide spectrum of services to meet individual needs, serving English/Language Arts, Pre-Algebra and Math students. The Holmes Television Network (HTN), a daily show produced by students, broadcasts student news and information each morning.
