Completely and utterly disorganized school that is completely out of touch with people trying to work with them.


Posted May 24, 2007

Every teacher has been excellent. The School is a community, very positive healthy place. Greatr music programs
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 10, 2005

Both of my kids have gone to Sullivan School since kindergarten. I have never had any complaints about any member of the staff. I am especially happy with the music program at the school. It encompasses all levels of ability from beginner to the more advanced levels of the newer middle school. I would also approve of having them start to take a foreign language whether it be french or spanish. The MCAS is a huge issue in Holyoke. I am pleased that Holyoke has made an effort to help the younger grades especially in math with the afterschool MCAS Prep course for the fourth graders. Keep up the great work !

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
