Milton High School was the best! Though somewhat lacking in diversity, everyone there is so accepting of their peers. The staff ensured I was ready for college by providing me with wonderful resources that I still use as a university student, and the teachers created a safe learning environment where I felt comfortable asking questions and being myself. The sports games were not only fun, but the teams were good, too! My favorite part was their incredible theatre and cirque program—it’s unlike anyone else’s high school for sure!

I love Milton High. The academics are spot on, along with the many extracurricular activities. You will never be bored! The majority of the teachers genuinely care about their students lives, not just their education. With the teachers constantly preparing their students for their short term classes, the College and Career Center, counselors, overall administration are always working diligently so that the students will be ready for college.
Milton has been awesome so far! Academics are amazing; there's so many different types of courses any many opportunities to pursue a rigorous curriculum or learn about a specific field of careers. The only thing I'm not a fan of is that there are quite a few genuinely awful teachers at this school who still seem to stick around despite the fact that they are widely disliked and few believe they are actually good at teaching... That aside, there are still many wonderful teachers that have shaped me in their own way!
