Holly Ridge Middle School
Holly Ridge Middle School was finished in 2002 and opened as Fuquay Middle School for the 2002-2003 school year as Fuquay’s original building was renovated. We opened the doors as Holly Ridge Middle School for the inaugural class of 2003-2004. Our mascot is a Hornet and the school colors are Blue and Yellow. We have a rich tradition of excellence achieved in both academics and athletics.
Holly Ridge Middle runs on a traditional school bell schedule. Our enrollment is approximately 1,100 students on a yearly basis, and we have over 70 staff members working to prepare our students for productive citizenship as well as higher education.
