Milton is a great school filled with academically excelling students and teachers/administrators who actually care for your well-being. The sports and arts are terrific! The Cirque program is ranked at the top in the nation and many of our sports are state champions or ranked at the top of the state. There are numerous club at school so you will definitely be able to find what you enjoy. If not, it is easy to start your own club too. However, the school culture absolutely sucks with a plethora of stuck-up materialistic children feeding off their parents' wealth. Along with this, around 50% of these students do drugs or vape blatantly in front of teachers in lower level classes.

From enthusiastic teachers to frequent de-stress programs, I enjoyed the balance between academics and fun at Milton High School. Our skateboarding principal, Mr. Jones, understood the importance of giving students access to a wide range of academic options. With over 30 AP courses and several career paths to choose from, I was able to experience several different lifestyles while still in HS. When I wanted to start my non- profit's first shoe drive, Mr. Jones supported me and my friends' efforts by giving us access to storage, technology and advice. I only got to the point of starting my own non-profit with the help of MHS's Social Innovator's Academy, where we got access to social entrepreneurs' mentorship. This is only my experience, MHS provides resources for each students aspirations along with the necessary relaxation programs, like a meditation room. One thing I would add to MHS is more programs that involve going outside since fresh air would improve all students' health.
Milton High is an incredible school. It's superb in all 3 A's - the Arts, Academics, and Athletics. Now I can't speak much for athletics, all I know is we have a great football team with incredibly fun games. But, the arts is my niche. Their theatre program is on a collegiate level, same with their band, orchestra, and chorus program. They also have a circus program with two classes - fundamentals and performance. Not many high schools have a cirque program. The shows are incredible. The academics are great, too. Milton provides many classes to fit every students needs. Overall, the staff is very kind and supportive. Our principal is an incredible man. He makes an effort to wish all students a happy birthday on their birthday. Milton high school is a great school I was fortunate enough to attend.
