Kelly Full Service Community School - About Our School

Kelly Full Service Community School Mission

As one of Holyoke’s Full Service Community Schools, we believe that if we focus time and resources to ensure high quality instruction; increase Student Engagement; engage with families on their child/ren’s learning and strengthen school culture and climate, then student achievement will rise, challenging student behavior will decrease; attendance will increase; student ‘wellness’ will improve and families will partner more closely with schools.

Kelly Full Service Community School Vision

Dr. Marcella R. Kelly School assures that every student will be prepared for success in high school and beyond. To achieve our vision, we make certain that:

  • Each student, regardless of their academic level when they enter our school, will leave the eighth grade:
    • having met or exceeded MA state standards in all subject areas;
    • proficient in reading and writing.
