What makes WHCIS unique?
The Winter Hill Community Innovation School is the Somerville Public School district's only Innovation School, which includes limited self-governance and a deliberate and innovative approach to the student needs. We are home to the K-8 mainstream classes, Grades 6-8 English Language Learners, and Somerville students with special education needs in grades K-8. We are also the only school in the district with a dress code developed by students. WHCIS was the 2017 winner of The Pozen Prize for Innovative Schools at The Boston Foundation. Read how we support our students in the case study about our innovative practices. Learn More about the WHCIS.
School report card
The Winter Hill Community Innovation School regularly reports demographic and student progress data to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This data is used to develop the annual No Child Left Behind progress report card for the WHCIS School. The 2021 School Report Card for WHCIS is available on the DESE website.
