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.

The environment itself will teach the child, if every error he makes is manifest to him, without the intervention of a parent or teacher, who should remain a quiet observer of all that happens. ~ Maria Montessori
