I am a 7th grader at this school and I started in 1st grade. So far, this school has been amazing! I haven allowed to learn at my own pace, in my own way. There is always help at my side when I need it, and there are so many great teachers and students here! I cant wait until next year and to learn more amd new things!
It is so awesome to have a Free option for Montessori education! Montessori philosophy is such an enriching way to teach. It helps children learn in the ways that each chid best retains. The school is a community and I love that the children are encouraged to help one another amongst grades. The city really needs to approve more classrooms and increase the budget. This type of education needs to be available to MORE!! They have a huge great building, now it needs to be approved for more than 2 kindergarten classes. The one downfall, they don't have foreign language, but all the other benefits are worth the trade off, in my opinion. This school philosophy focuses on the whole child, not just academics but how to work together and solve problems, be kind and considerate, think and be a community. I believe public Montessori schools are the way of the future!
Love, love, love this school. Wonderful dedicated teachers, parents that go above and beyond, students whom excel. Look at the latest MCAS.
For those who are open and interested in the Montessori teaching method, it's rare to find a FREE option. Haverhill is lucky to have such an option with the Hill View Charter. The teachers and staff are dedicated to the extra hours and efforts to help their students succeed. The latest 2009 MCAS scores are showing those results. MCAS at Hill View were tops for all of Haverhill in 2009 by far.
I'm a 7th grader at this school, and I love it! I've been at this school since it opened when I was in 2nd grade, and every year has been great for me! If you go to a different school in Haverhill that you're not happy with, I would definitely try getting into this school next year!
Both of my children go to hvm. They are so smart and love to learn. I am happy with the seccuss of the school and all the kids!!
My daughter just started kindergarden this year. She has always loved to learn, and this school has fit her like a glove. It has allowed her to learn at her own pace, and now, she is reading chapter books (with some help). My son will be attending in the fall, and I couldn't be happier. From the administration to the 'guides' (teachers) to the parents, there is a full community here, all wanting the best for the children. We are very lucky to have gotten in via the lottery. I love the Montessori approach, but would never have been able to afford it privately...love it!!!
I have two children who attend HVM. One started there in the 1st grade, in HVM's 1st year. Although there have been challenges along the way, I believe the journey has been well worth it. We are very lucky to have HVM. Our children are not only learning what they need to academically, they are learning the importance of being good members of their community. Grace, courtesy, dignity, and respect.....that says it all! Thank you Hill View
This is my childs first year at Hill View and we couldn't be happier. I never thought I'd see the day that my daughter would like going to school. The children at this school are treated as individuals who are learning about everything. Not just accademics. The Montessori way of teaching is brilliant and it has made a huge difference in my childs learning. I had always wanted my child to enjoy learning and now she does. The staff is wonderful and I feel that my child is truly cared about. What a great feeling. I look forward to my other child attending as well. She has visited the school many times and can't wait to join in.
My son and daughter attend the school. The school is improving each year and strives for greatness. The children love the school . They acquired a passion to want to learn. There is something to be said about the Montessori way of learning. I am very pleased with the school and the development over such a short period of time.
Coming from 5 years of private Montessori to Hill View chater has been awesome, I'm very pleased with my choice to send my son to kinder, once the new building is in place, It will be the best school in haverhill. I love that they offer a Montessori education to all..
My family was blessed the year Hill View opened because we had the best teacher, Mr. G and I think he was the biggest reason that my daughter took to being in first grade so well. Of course the Monetssori system to me, offers the best way to teach, we are grateful to be part of such a wonderful school.
This is my son's second year and he loves it. He has learned so much in such a short period of time. I was skeptical at first but the Montessori Curriculum really works well for my son. Looking forward to have my other son attend next year.
Hill View is beginning its fourth year. There are new teachers and administrators and a lot of new kindergarten students. I'm hoping that as each year goes by, the school will continue to improve and grow. The students love their teachers and the materials and the big classrooms. From what I've been told the kids love the school and the teachers and staff love to work there.
Haverhill is fortunate to have a school like Hill View Montessori. Without it, many students would never have an opportunity to experience the rich and stimulating Montessori curriculum traditinally avaialable only in the private school arena.
Hill View is a new school, only open for 3 years. It is going through growing pains but strives to be an excelent school. The best benefit os that the children seem to love to learn there.
