Milton Academy Reviews

My older daughter is studying in Milton Academy. We chose Milton because of the atmosphere of the school and its location.
The school is very liberal, I would even say a bit aggressively liberal, speakers with more conservative views are rarely invited. So, what I don’t like - one-sided views, and although no one is punished for expressing different views, not liberals are not encouraged to speak up.. Unfortunately in Milton kids are encouraged to have one unified view, at least that’s how it looks.
Teachers are mostly good, helpful, responsive. Some very young teachers are obviously not the best choice, but even they are very well qualified.
Campus is a very safe place, dorm teachers are always available for a parent to talk, as well as advisors.
Sports program is good too, although swimmers do not have a swimming pool on campus and have to go somewhere else for practice.
Overall the school is great, and my daughter had never had any afterthought- she likes it very much.

Milton Academy is a great school that definitely prepares their students well for college and life beyond. As a boarder, learning how to manage my time on my own and keep a healthy balance of academics, extracurriculars, play, and rest has been incredibly transformative. The teachers and other staff members, for the most part, all want to see their students succeed, and the relationships you make with them can be deep and meaningful. The mix of roughly 50% day students and 50% boarding students means that there is both a diversity of backgrounds and a diversity of thought, but less of the latter since the school seems to lean towards liberal rhetoric. Being in a suburban community south of downtown Boston, boarding students often participate in school organized activities that explore the many different kinds of communities in the surrounding area. Overall, my experience at Milton has been incredible, and I'm very grateful for how much the school and its resources have helped me grow.
I graduated a couple years ago. The teachers, campus, and staff were world class. The administration faced criticisms, but I now respect the campus as a whole for facing issues directly in a united and energized way. Above all, I was given two things during my time at Milton: an ability to write and be independent. Milton's english department is famous for a reason, and college is a breeze after boarding school outside Boston.
