about our school

Who We Serve

We serve about 360 students in grades Pre-K-8. Metcalf is a Dual Language School of Choice within the City of Holyoke. We focus on the three pillars of Dual Language Education: Bilingualism and Biliteracy, Grade-Level Academic Achievement, and Cross-Cultural Competence.

Our School Culture

We are unequivocally committed to providing a safe and orderly environment in which students can maximize their academic achievement. Our core values are Support, Teamwork, Achievement and Respect.

A Learning Community

We envision being a community of learning in which all decision-making focuses on students’ academic and social growth. Every adult and child is valued, respected, and challenged to live out the principles of dual language learning: attaining bilingualism, biliteracy, and cross-cultural competence.

Our Mission

All scholars will be prepared for college and career options through a focus on building strong language skills, multiculturalism, and accomplishing high levels of academic achievement.
