Seven Hills Charter Public School was founded in 1996 by a group of private citizens who partnered with Edison Schools, Inc. to provide an alternative mode for public education in the City of Worcester. The doors opened to 524 K-7 students on September 11, 1996. Since then, the school has grown to hold 666 K-8 students and maintains a waitlist of approximately 390 students.
In May of 2005, the Board of Trustees expressed confidence in the school’s maturity and development, prompting state board of education’s approval of a charter amendment for Seven Hills to operate independently of Edison Schools. We are proud to announce that in February of 2006, the Massachusetts Board of Education voted to renew our charter for another five year term.
Seven Hills Charter Public School is proud to serve a diverse cross section of Worcester families. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, athletic performance, disability status, housing status, proficiency in the English language or a foreign language, or prior academic achievement.
