McMahon School serves around 320 students in grades PreK-5 in the lower Rock Valley neighborhood of the City of Holyoke. In partnership with families and community, we pride ourselves on our efforts to ensure we support the whole child, both academically and socially.
Our work is grounded in equity and our belief that all students have the ability to do high-quality work and reach or exceed grade-level expectations in a supportive, safe environment.
Through culturally responsive instruction, high expectations for students and staff, and targeted, individualized support, Lt. Elmer J. McMahon School ensures all learners develop the academic and social-emotional foundation necessary to succeed in high school and beyond.
Our school's vision is to support our learners to be curious, critical thinkers connected to our school community while fostering a positive sense of self and a drive to achieve at high levels academically and in life.
