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.
As a current junior at Milton High School, I have experienced most or all of what this school has to offer. And if I could describe it in one word, it would be stimulating. Milton has something to offer for everyone; it offers close to 30 different AP classes, had state-ranked sports, including football, volleyball, cross country, cheerleading, and more. Not to mention, it’s arts department is amazing; band, orchestra, theatre, and even cirque are all encompassed in this unique high school experience. Extracurriculars are evidently a large part of the culture at Milton, and these include over 20 different clubs with a variety of interests, from healthcare to student council to even business. Milton is sure to have something for everyone who attends, and has a very strong school spirit, which can be seen at football games throughout the season. Although freedom at the school can be taken too far, with drugs and vaping not uncommon, it also enables students to be their best selves.
