MIE is proud to have Haverhill High School as a partner in our Advanced Placement Success Program! Here are some facts about HHS:

• Haverhill High School is MIE’s first partner school in Haverhill, MA
• The mascot of the Haverhill Hillies is Michelangelo’s, “The Thinker.” HHS has a replica of the famous statue at the school’s entrance!
• UMass Lowell just this semester opened a satellite campus right in the heart of downtown Haverhill, meaning students from Haverhill High have the opportunity to attend a nationally ranked university in their own hometown. Haverhill is also home to Northern Essex Community College.
