The
North Campus hosts a comprehensive academic program, featuring four theme-based Academies that focus on a specific series of courses, work-based experiences, (such as job shadowing and internships with local companies), and projects. Each academy also includes regular curriculum courses — English language arts, math, science and social studies. The four theme-based academies include:

  • Community and Global Studies (CGS)
  • Technology, Engineering, and Design (TED)
  • Performing and Media Arts (PMA)

Both campuses feature our Freshman Academy  structure, and multiple opportunities for early college and dual enrollment in college classes.   The North campus hosts Early College programs in partnership with Westfield State University and Holyoke Community College.  Students who are new to the English language and the country can enroll in the Newcomer Program on the North Campus.   Finally, students who need an alternative pathway to graduation can enroll in the HHS Opportunity Academy.

The Herald

“I genuinely think there isn’t another high school where you can go to get such an amazing educational experience. As students, we are offered so many programs and academic opportunities to take advantage of — it’s very versatile.”

“It’s also easy to develop relationships with the staff at HHS, which means you’d never go unnoticed in any of your classes.”

– Salome Moreno, HHS Student
