Profile of a Learner

Learner Profile

Our Learner Profile | en Español describes the most important attributes and skills a student develops throughout their educational journey in HPS, from PreK through high school.  Beyond the academic standards a student develops, the Learner Profile paints a picture of the type of person a Holyoke student is now and who they will be supported to become. 

With these characteristics clearly articulated, Holyoke has a shared picture for our destination. Over the next two years, teams will work together to ensure the Learner Profile comes alive in each classroom.
