The City of Holyoke and the Holyoke Public Schools (HPS), with the support of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), is proposing to build two new middle schools in Holyoke. When complete in 2022, every middle school student in Holyoke would be in a new, 21st-century school. If approved by voters, these two new buildings would be open beginning in the fall of 2022. The need for middle schools was identified through a community process in 2017.
