Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School


Our Mission

Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School is a thriving learning environment that nurtures, inspires, challenges and educates the minds and well-being of our diverse population of children in Kindergarten through Grade 5 where all children will achieve their optimal academic level and develop positive citizenship and character traits.

We support the growth of the Whole Child and the continuous professional development of the teachers in collaboration with the families of Silver Hill and the Haverhill Community. The vision of Silver Hill as a Horace Mann Charter is to provide our community with leadership in instructional practices, site based management by staff and parents, and increased community involvement in schools.

Our students wrote their version: The Mission of SHHMCS is to be NICE – Nurture, Inspire, Challenge, and Educate all students (Us!). Our thriving learning environment (classroom & school) helps us build and develop higher academic skills, positive citizenship and character traits.

    PARCC is a new state test that could replace MCAS for English Language Arts and math in 2016. Our students in grades 3-5 will be taking this assessment this year. PARCC stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.

  • Parking for Basketball

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Unfortunately, due to the excessive amount of snow, we have lost about 1/3 of our faculty/visitor parking. Teachers now have to park along the Westford Street side, behind the school, or anywhere else that is open. We also share parking with Consentino, and they have been kind enough to give up some of their spaces in front of their school to help out. Our staff comes into school anywhere between 7:00-8:30, and many were reporting that they did not have any parking spaces. We also have a variety of counselors and outside agencies that work in our school, or might have 8:00 meetings, and parking was at a premium. So I apologize that we have had to limit parents watching basketball, but until some of the snow goes, we just do not have the extra parking.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Silver Hill Coaching Staff

  • Silver Hill Retains Level 1 Status!

    I am very proud to announce that Silver Hill is Level 1 once again! This is the third year in a row that our grade 3-5 students have achieved the highest level in the MCAS testing.  MCAS is a rigorous test of reading, writing, math, and in grade 5, science. This is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of our staff, not only in these three grades but starting in kindergarten! My next Coffee with the Principal on October 22, will be a review of our MCAS data and a brief overview of the upcoming PARCC assessment, which will be given instead of MCAS this year. Hope to see many of you there!
