Our School

    • Welcome to Holly Grove Middle School

      Holly Grove Middle School is a multi-track year-round school. The faculty and staff believe in the vision that all students WILL succeed.

      In order for this to happen, the staff at HGMS follow the DOGS expectations, which are:

      • Relationships come first
      • Engaging lessons every day
      • Supervision is everyone's job
      • Positive interactions with everyone

      We are committed to fostering a school environment where every student will encounter adults each day that are willing to meet them where they are and help them make progress towards their goals. Throughout the eight period day, the students attend their core classes, physical education, and elective class and have a period set aside for enrichment or remediation. 

      Mission Statement

      Wake County Public School System will provide a relevant and engaging education and will graduate students who are collaborative, creative, effective communicators and critical thinkers.
