Holmes Elementary School offers students a general education program which focuses on the Common Core State Standards. Grades 1-8 are departmentalized which affords students the opportunity to engage in a deeper and more concentrated area of study. Holmes teachers design coherent instruction to offer an intentional program of study to address the diverse needs of ALL students. All students in grades K-8 receive intervention services and are strongly encouraged to attend our Making Miracles Intervention, Tutoring & Enrichment Extended Day Program (M2ITE). Our school also offers a well articulated Multi-Tiered System of Supports (for which we affectionately call Miracle Transformation of Student Success) to offer academic and social emotional balance.  To further enhance curricular supports and social  learning, Holmes partners with Family Focus as well as other community based organizations to meet the needs of the students and families.  We offer adult programming on Saturdays from 10 am - 2pm sponsored by Holmes Parent University to promote healthy minds, healthy living and exercise. Our student Council gives students voice at Holmes School and allows us to support our community.
