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.


    Hello Silver Hill Families!

    I hope you are enjoying summer, and this incredible weather! This will be the last posting on this web site, although you will still be able to access our new and improved site through Haverhill Public, linked with this site.

    I wanted to give you some information about events that are quickly coming up. Each summer seems to go by faster and faster!

    Silver Hill will be holding an Open House for all new students and their families in Grades 1-5, on August 26th, from 4-5, in the cafeteria. This will give you an early peek at our school. The Principal will provide an overview of our programs and a question/answer time, you will have a chance to meet some of the staff, get a tour of the school, and see your child’s classroom. If you are not able to attend on August 26th, please call 978-374-3448, and we will try to set up a time for you to visit the school before opening day.

    Also on August 26, immediately after the new students in Grades 1-5 Open House, our Silver Hill Foundation will be hosting a “Bring your own picnic” from 5-7, for ALL Silver Hill families, “old and new”. This will be a chance to meet/reconnect/play outside with other Silver Hill families before the new school year starts. Please check our website for updates and more details.

    To ease our youngest students into their new all day school routine, we will be having a staggered start for kindergarten. We have completed our kindergarten screening, so on September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, we will have six students each day come to their kindergarten class. Letters have been mailed home with your child’s assigned day and teacher. This will give the children a chance to experience a full kindergarten day with just a few of their new classmates, so everyone gets a chance to try things out, see the routine, and spend extra time with their new teacher. There is no school for kindergarten on Friday, September 4.

    Silver Hill will be holding a kindergarten Open House on August 31st, from 5:30 to 6:30. This is for parents/ guardians only please; the children have their own special staggered start orientation day. The Open House will give you an opportunity to meet the teachers, see what a “Day in the Life of a Kindergartner” looks like, have a Question and Answer time, and visit your child’s classroom.

    Open House for Grades 1-5 will be held on Wednesday, September 16, from 5:00 – 6:30. We are holding Open House after school begins, so your child will have had a chance to experience some time in their classroom, and will be able to be your “Tour Guide” for the evening!

    To improve communication with our families, we have redesigned our web site to keep you up to date on what’s happening at Silver Hill!

    The Silver Hill faculty looks forwards to an exciting new school year of learning!
