Tilton Elementary School
John C. Tilton Innovation School
In the spring of 2012 Tilton School was awarded a $35,000 grant to become an Innovation School. The areas of focus during this five year grant will be the delivery of the Massachusetts Common Core Curriculum; professional development for our staff designed to meet the specific needs of our students; PBIS: Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, which is a school wide initiative to establish a safe, engaging and positive culture in our building; a culture that supports student learning; teacher training and parent involvment. We have also adopted a very successful uniform policy to support a sense of community throughout our building. The John C. Tilton Innovation School will continue to operate as a public school that will educate the students of our neighborhood in grades K-4, as well as those from the Haverhill community.
The innovation school follows the Massachusetts State Common Core Standards and administers all district and state mandated assessments. Our goals are to create a public school flexible enough to compete with charter schools; to empower our teachers to become educational leaders within their classrooms; to create a unique model of education designed to engage all learners; and to identify and meet the exact needs of our subgroups by redesigning the way instruction is delivered to ensure achievement for all students in our population.
