Haverhill is riding high, says the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce, thanks in large part to the school system and Superintendent Margaret Marotta.

In a new video released last week, Chamber President Dougan Sherwood calls the “stories of the schools in Haverhill” an important part of the fabric of the city, with Marotta pointing to the last 12 months as an “exciting” time of change in the Haverhill Public Schools’ system.

Among the highlights: The removal of sports fees and the introduction of a maker-space and technology programs at Haverhill High School, Marotta says. School Committee member Richard J. Rosa also applauds the addition of the “Letterland” program and the Schools’ partnership with Haverhill Promise, a community-based effort to get all students in the city reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade.

“The community in which Haverhill Public Schools sits in is vital to its success. It’s almost a microcosm of America,” state Rep. Andy Vargas explains in the video (watch below).
