Once Panther always a Panther. Class of 2011 Here are some Milton tips. 1 Don't compare the school to any other school. 2. Don't try to be an athlete if you don't love sports. 3. Rejoice in school spirit don't reject it. (my best memories are all pep-rallies, Homecoming actives, dances, parades and lunch block) 4 Look for great friends not cool friends. 5 If you don't like Milton and you can transfer schools then do it. The only holding the school back more then the lack of money, is negative from students, parents and administration.

Milton high school baseball is a joke. Don't call them tryouts if a team is already picked. Students arrived at these so called tryouts to find kids in last years uniforms that already had a morning "practice" (seniors we know they make the cut). The comments were made that if you weren't on a traveling team or attended summer/winter coaching camps with coach George Blake and telling students he didn't know who they were didn't feel very welcoming to new or homeschooled students. The numbers might be impressive-some 100 kds trying out for realistically 4-30 spots, but talent is missed. Bottom line of your new, didn't spend tons of bucks, and didn't spend a ton of time kissing up save yourself the trouble, anxiety, and pressure.

TERRIBLE!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! First I find out that my child is allowed to turn in work WHENEVER she wants to and they will accept it for the complete grade (not late)! That leads me to believe that any other student doing their work on time means nothing! Secondly, some teachers just don't feel like posting grades at the end of the 9 weeks so I guess that means its a wash for the class and no one at the school seems to be concerned! Thirdly,and most importantly, this school does not feel that they need to mail the end of the year report card nor do they put final grades up on the website--no you have to drive to the school and pick it up! Not mail it like they do throughout the year! My other daughter will NEVER step foot in that sham of a school!! If I could give this school a negative rating I would!!

I have two children at Milton High, one of which is graduating this year. The first few years I was worried about my oldest eduction. But now with the vision and direction of the new principal, Mike Thorpe, I believe that Milton High will become a power house in the southeast for education, sports and the arts.

Milton High is one of the few remaining traces of history Milton has. I love so much knowing that Milton was the 1st school in this county. Milton is filled with so much love and care. Everyone knows everyone, we're all one big family. I love Milton.

Milton is currently lacking funding, and thus lacking opportunity. It also values sports much more than the arts or anything else for that matter. Some teachers are great, others are lackluster. Milton has a terrible chorus, but a very good band & experienced teacher. +Mrs. Powers, a guidance counselor, is the best I have ever seen. The other counselors do not put in enough time or effort, but she will go above and beyond. +The current principle, Mr. Buddy Powell, is very friendly and seems to care about the welfare of the students.

As a former student I am horrified at the lack of education in this county, let alone this school. In my 11th grade English class my teacher had to explain 'their/there/they're' to my class at least 4 times during the semester. That's about once a month. The dress code is ridiculous and conservative, and the curriculum is a joke. The teachers for the most part are wonderful however the admin and student body are ridiculous. If I had to hear something like 'I seen you the other day' one more time I would go bananas. Improper grammar at 16 years old is unacceptable! I switched to home schooling my senior year and it was the best thing I have ever done.

This is my 3rd year at Milton High School and I think it is amazing! From the staff, to the teachers, and even the students. I recommend MHS to everyone. It is like a second home and its amazing. Class of 2010 and Go Panthers!!!!!!

As I read through the reviews I realize that the students and teachers are the ones that are giving it rave review. As a current student let me tell you: take the advise fom the students. We are the ones that go there everyday and see what is going on. Milton High School is more than just a building full of kids; it is a safe house, a refuge, a second home, and the people in it are family. The teachers are always there to help you with what ever problem you may have. The take time out of their persona lives to come here and go the extra mile. There is truly no other school on this planet that is anything remotely like Milton High School. Go class of 2010 and ....GO PANTHERS!!!

My son is the first to attend Milton High. My daughter who graduated in 2005 attended Pace. At this point I am unimpressed with Milton. The tracking system for grades on line, doesn't help and neither does the planner.

Milton High leaves a lot to be desired. Some teachers are some very good teachers that have impacted my child in a positive way. There are some teachers that leave a lot to be desired. MHS would not be my first choice of high schools.

My daughter enjoys being in the band. However, Milton was not my first choice of high schools in the area. Although I am not 'thrilled' to have children at Milton High School, I have to admit that in my opinion it is better than most of the high schools in Pensacola.

My daughter, Rachel, graduated from Milton High last year. I thank God every day that circumstances led me to enroll her in Milton's school system. She is an outstanding person, is well-liked by almost everyone she meets, and is excelling in all of her endeavors. Much of the credit goes to the teachers and counselors at Milton High for being there for her and leading her in the right direction to secure her future career goals.

Milton High School is a wonderful education institution, with top of the line teachers and staff. Milton High is dedicated to acheiving exellence in everything it undertakes and surpasses it with flying colors. It has wonderful leadership by principal Mr. Lynn. Milton High is in my opinion is the model of exellence for high schools in our country, with school spirit, teachers who care, technology to help them grow and develop the skills today that they will need for tomarrow's world. Great going Panthers! Keep it up for future generations. I personally would want to go to no other school. Milton High School Class of 2003 rules!
