Organization Description:The mission of HCCS is to promote the joy of learning and to prepare a broad cross section of Holyoke children for success as students, workers, and citizens by providing them with a high quality public education. Special care will be taken to develop in students the joy of learning. Joy is a powerful motivator but can only be attained if students see themselves as confident, capable learners. Students develop that confidence by working with their teachers to set and achieve goals that are challenging. When learning activities are challenging, and students believe in their ability to meet those challenges, indifference and reluctance to engage in learning is replaced by an authentic delight in learning. Joy permeates each classroom, and the school as a whole, because students understand that they have acquired the skills and knowledge that enables them to follow their dreams, and become agents for positive change through their new-found belief in themselves.
