Students will use the technology to work through complex and comprehensive materials developing lifelong learning and problem solving skills. The administration, school committee, and staff of the HPS make it their mission to provide the children of Holyoke with up-to-date educational technology.
It is the vision of the HPS to immerse all students, through technology, in learning as a lifelong process.
