Holyoke Public Schools

Congratulations to Tammy Cato, a 5th-grade teacher at E.N. White, who was awarded the Cone for Excellence by Dr. Zrike! Tammy Cato was chosen to be recognized with this award because of her commitment to engage her students in cognitively demanding work. She is not afraid to ask her students to think outside of their comfort zone and she supports their productive struggle to succeed. In addition to the award, Cato also received a Friendly's gift certificate for an ice cream cone (donated by Friendly's) in recognition for her outstanding work.

To date, the following HPS educators have received an honorary Cone for Excellence: Roberto Vicente, Jariela Cruz Caliz (Middle school alternative teacher), Trish Wilson (Donahue School), Odalis Acevedo (Metcalf School), Amy Nill (Peck School), Dr. Laura Chiaravalloti (Holyoke STEM Academy), and Laura Vazquez (Holyoke High School North Campus). Congratulations to all of these educators who are focused on providing a high-quality educational experience and offering multiple pathways for students to succeed.

Enrichment at Lawrence

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

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.

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.

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, STEM, 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.
