I was a student at McMahon for 9 years (k-8). I just graduated yesterday and all I can say about this school is that it's the best school in the district. Teachers want you to succeed, the school offers office hours (where you stay after school if you having trouble in any area) for grades 6-8, and the teachers are more than willing to spend their own money if it means to get us a fun project. If you are considering McMahon as a school for your daughter/son do it 100%. It's a great school for people of all ethnicity and all disabilities! McMahon

This school is wonderful considering the funding. The teachers are truly invested in the students and their success and are very willing to work with parents on ways to help students learn.

This school is in serious jeopardy. I can not believe that the State of Massachusetts allows children to be educated in such a school. The school building is in serious disrepair, damaged ceiling tiles, floor tiles, stained windows, moldy cabinets. The classes are overcrowded. There is a high percentage of children with learning disabilities that are not being provided services. Many teachers are in states of serious burn out. Playground equipment is almost non-existent.

I am a teacher at McMahon School, and know for a fact that students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 have Social Studies on a regular basis. These grades also have field trips that are connected to the Social Studies curriculum.

Great school, love the teachers, vice principle and principle. The entire staff is very welcoming and really care about the kids education. They have taken the time to offer my child extra homework help and are working close with her on her problem areas.

My child is now in sixth grade and has not had a social studies class in several years. Next year there is an MCAS exam on social studies..how are they expected to pass. The Holyoke School system I believe is failing our students and robbing them of a proper education. I have lost faith in the current school committee to correct this problem, and feel it's time for some new people in place with fresh ideas to put Holyoke on the right track.
