Join the Holyoke Public Schools today!
We are a focused on providing a high-quality education and multiple pathways for students’ success. We have invested in laptops for all teachers, staff compensation, and expanded professional leadership and development opportunities.
Additional PreK classrooms, dual language classrooms, a career explorations program, and enrichment and extended day choices are being offered.
We’ve expanded the number of college courses HPS high school students can access on and off campus through partnerships with local universities.
Student choice programs have been added – Personalized Pathways Program (P3) and career explorations. We have added two new middle schools – Holyoke STEM Academy and Veritas Prep Holyoke and have received approval from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) to begin studying options for constructing one large or two smaller middle schools. We are redesigning the middle school and high school experience to improve the instruction and services offered, and provide students with the skills and tools they need to be successful in school now, and later in college and their careers.
