Our Dropout Prevention
Initiative aims to reduce student dropouts in Holyoke and improve student graduation rates through research and evidence-based solutions. The district provides various programs, outreach and resources aimed at supporting academic achievement for all students.
We envision a day when
Holyoke Public Schools are Holyoke families’ first choice for their children’s education.
Our students will: graduate with an additional credential that provides for college and career options; experience success through multiple pathways; think critically and communicate with purpose; value themselves, value others and value being part of the Holyoke community; and lead with Growth Mindset and Self Management.
Our values at HPS include:
Encourage bold thinking
Explore all possibilities for student success
Embrace all students and families as our own
Empower school teams to lead the turnaround
Engage in meaningful feedback
