OUR ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS
Great schools have strong leadership and experienced, dedicated administration and teachers. Holy Name Parish School administrators, teachers, and specialists are Massachusetts state certified and many hold masters degrees. The results of their dedication and experience are evident everyday in their classrooms and in the accomplishments of our students as they move on to the next higher level of their education.
A Catholic education at Holy Name Parish School provides:
MEASURES OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS (MAP Assessment)
MAP is an assessment that evaluates the unique needs of a student and measures student growth throughout the school year. This allows the teacher to adjust his or her instruction to best suit the needs of the individual student and the class. The valuable information, from the assessment, provides an opportunity to adjust the strategies to support and boost proficiency within the classroom.
Our primary purpose at Holy Name Parish School is to provide an excellent education in a Catholic environment. Our students will learn to use their gifts and talents academically and to achieve their best. Holy Name Parish School will guide students so that they may increase their knowledge of the world, of life, and of humankind through the development of their intellectual capabilities. Our students will develop cognitive, evaluative, and critical skills needed to function as responsible citizens in our society. They will learn to share of themselves in service to others and make a contribution to their community. Our students strive to look at their world in such a way as to commit themselves to be respectful to others and to respect individual differences.
