satified parent , students who want to learn and teachers who love to teach will be found at HHS . I truly think that HHS has been put down by surrounding communities, but the truth is we have a bunch a great kids attending HHS .

Holyoke high is a great place to learn and they do offer very vigorous honors and a.p courses. The school is a lot better then the neighboring communities think. and there is a great opportunity for your child to learn about the diversity in the school.

If you and your child are willing to work, there are ample AP and Honors courses that are challenging and provide an education to rival the best private school.

Very strong educational program that many universities look for in their incoming classes. Offers a variety of AP courses and has excellent extra curricular activities program. Also ranks amongst the highest in standings for athletics in Division 1 atmosphere. It produces high quality scholar and student athletes. Holyoke is vary unrated because of the sterotype associated with the community. As an alumni of HHS, I strongly approve of this institute.

A much better school than most people expect, especially in honors & AP class offerings. Very good extracurricular options as well. If your kid is willing to work hard he/she can get a very good education here. I graduated from HHS myself, and have had 3 kids there.
