Holyoke Middle School is proud to serve the families of sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students for the 2022-2023 school year. We are committed to creating a learning environment where all students are able to achieve at the highest level and to provide the support our students need in order to meet those high expectations. For students who receive ESL services and students who receive services via IEPs and 504s, Holyoke Middle School is committed to providing support in a way that promotes equity and inclusion for all students. Most importantly, Holyoke Middle School is committed to working with families to create a safe and consistent learning environment for all students.

One formula:


Two rules:

Everyone is treated with dignity.

Everyone gets to feel safe.

Three goals:

  1. Teach inclusively across classrooms at a high level (teachers working together strategically to move all students to grade-level standards)

  2. Continuously work to build strong relationships with families

  3. Build and maintain school systems at a high level (everyone knows what to do, why we are doing it, and who cares if it happens)
