Thank you so much for your interest in New Hampshire’s first public Montessori School. The Mill Falls Charter School team has come together as committed neighbors, friends, parents, educators and community partners, to build an exciting educational opportunity for elementary age students in our state.
August 29th, 2012 marked our opening day. Our 93 students hail from Manchester and from towns across the state. This year we serve students in grades K-3. We will grow each of the next few years to reach our full elementary offering of K-6.
Celebrating Mill Falls
On Monday, September 17th, we took a moment to celebrate our founding and thank those who have helped us get to where we are with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. Community members, honored guests, families and friends joined us.
Celebrating World Peace
On Friday, September 21, Mill Falls Staff and Students held their first all school assembly to celebrate International World Peace Day. As part of the celebration they made pinwheels which were displayed outside to show the world that Mill Falls was observing this day of peace.
Mill Falls Welcomes Governor Maggie Hassan to Campus
On April 10th, 2013 Mill Falls students and staff welcomed Governor Maggie Hassan to our school. She met with school leaders, two students presented a Montessori work, then she toured our classrooms.
We invite you to explore this site, meet our staff, view our location, learn about Montessori and the charter model, and join in our enthusiasm for all that is possible as we bring Montessori public. We welcome your ideas, skills and resources, and hope you will help us to spread the word about Mill Falls Charter School!
