    Milton is an amazing school that offers challenging academics while also providing students a plethora of resources when they need extra support. The smaller classes really allows for students to meet with teachers one-on one when struggling, peer tutors are readily available throughout the school year, and the academic skills center is staffed with learning specialist who can help student from anything from time management to grammar help. The opportunities Milton offers are as expansive inside the classroom as they are out!

    Milton Academy is an incredible school, and the education I received is top tier. I have not attended college, but the academics seem to mirror a university experience. Teachers won't "force" you to do anything; you are responsible for your attendance, work, growth, etc. This system may sound intimidating but it encourages you to pursue learning because you WANT to, not because you have to. Milton encourages student engagement, participation, innovation, and more. The student body is awesome because everyone is so different! However, keep in mind that it can be a fairly stressful school.
    Best school ever! Students are friendly and accepting, curriculum rigorous but fair and allows students to explore areas of content not classically seen in rote memorization-type of schools. Many opportunities outside of classroom to explore - including many sports teams (ISL school), theater and musical performances as well as a very strong speech and debate team.
