About Hill View Montessori Charter Public School

Hill View Montessori Charter Public School, located in Haverhill Massachusetts, is a public charter school that provides urban students in grades K-8 with a tuition-free, public, Montessori education.

Montessori education offers students differentiated curriculum and instruction in multi-age classrooms (except a single-grade kindergarten). Learning is maximized by teaching to student’s individual academic level and by leveraging each child’s unique learning style. Classrooms are stocked with scientifically-designed Montessori manipulatives and resource materials to facilitate inquiry and provide a concrete understanding of abstract concepts.  Hill View is committed to character education and integrates this into the Montessori classroom with ongoing lessons in grace, courtesy, respect and responsibility.

HVM enrolls students through public lottery for which any Haverhill resident may apply.  Students from other Massachusetts communities may apply as well but are only offered admission after Haverhill residents.

It is my belief that the thing which we should cultivate in our teachers is more the spirit than the mechanical skill of the scientist; that is, the direction of the preparation should be toward the spirit rather than toward the mechanism.
