Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School
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.

Notes from the Principal
Dear Silver Hill Families,
The holiday spirit is in the air! Although we’ll try to keep our school routines, the next few weeks of school will bring some fun and festive activities. Santa’s Parade kicked off the season, and I’m looking forward to experiencing Silver Hill’s traditions of the Canned Food Drive with Zuber’s Zebras and Santoro’s Sharks, the Little Shopper’s Shop, and the holiday concert! I hope you and your families enjoy your own special family traditions over the next few weeks. Whether it’s celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, making cookies or latkes, the gifts come and go, but the traditions that children can count on year after year create the fondest memories. My wish to you for this holiday season is to keep the stress level down and the holiday spirit up, take time to enjoy your favorite traditions ~ and begin some new ones. Drink cocoa with LOTS of marshmallow, read The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, have a joyous Christmas Day, and a happy and healthy New Year!
Warm Wishes for the Holidays,
