The Burnham Parent Resource and Registration Center was established to make a smooth transition for parents and students into the Haverhill Public Schools. This school building was converted into offices in 2008 and it houses the Registration Center for Grades K-12, Special Education, Transportation and our English Language Learner Departments.
