Holyoke Public Schools

Here are some photos from the Early College Celebration - On Wednesday, seventy-nine, ninth-grade students enjoyed an early college celebration. They traveled to a business, linked to their academy, to learn about the training and education related to the various career opportunities in that field. Technology, Education, and Design (TED) Academy students visited Hydro Electric Dam / Fish Lift to learn about operations and history; Medical and Life Sciences (MLS) Academy students visited Mount Tom to learn about poisonous plants; Community and Global Studies (CGS) Academy students traveled to City Hall, met with various city departments and talked about college with Mayor Morse; and students in the Performing and Media Art (PMA) Academy visited Gándara Center to learn about the Youth Media Literacy Program. Following the business trip, the students visited Holyoke Community College for a campus tour and barbeque.

We would like to thank Mayor Morse, Holyoke City Hall, HG&E's Robert E. Barrett Fishway, Gándara Center, and Holyoke Community College for partnering with us to provide these learning experiences for our students.

Enrichment for Every Student

HPS is taking learning outside the classroom. Thanks to partnerships with many local and national organizations we have doubled enrichment opportunities each week to engage and inspire students. The full school day in our elementary and middle schools provides expanded opportunities for students to explore their interests in the sciences, the arts, sports, and local and world cultures

Technology

Access to Technology

Today’s students are tomorrow’s engineers, scientists, researchers and programmers. Through new technology and online programs, we’re connecting students with the opportunities that await them beyond high school.

At HPS, we know that students do best when they pursue their passions and are trusted to pick their pathway.

Dean Grad

Improved High School Experience for All

HPS’ redesigned high school experience focuses on providing real-world learning opportunities for every student. We’ve quadrupled the number of college courses HPS high school students can access on and off campus through partnerships with HCC, Westfield State and UMass.

9th grade students have the opportunity to explore a range of college and career pathways. In 10th-12th grade, students focus on their interests and develop plans for success beyond HPS. We welcome and support overaged and under credited students back to school with new pathways to the diploma.

Dual Language

Expansion of Choice Programs

At HPS, we understand that each student has different strengths and interests. We’ve expanded choice programs, including dual language immersion, the health sciences, and P3 (a personalized learning program). Free Preschool programs are now in every neighborhood school and boast family friendly scheduling options

High Quality Teaching and Learning

We’ve invested in recruiting and retaining top quality educators who inspire bold thinking, recognize student potential, and encourage all students to work towards their goals. The full school day increases time for teacher planning and development. New curriculum materials in math and ELA along with a laptop for each teacher will support engaging instruction.
