I am an involved mother/parent @ Milford ES since 2003. I am a PTA officer and Milford is a great school with excellent students. The school just need better leadership that is open minded and knows how to deal with the different demographics of the school and community. We will have a new principal in the coming year and it is our hope that she will be very experienced in this and other areas when it comes to making Milford a happy, fun, loving, and positive home away from home for all of us. Especially, the children/students!

My son started (K) in cherokee county, mid year I moved to cobb county & like others I was worried about if this new school would be anything like the other. Now I have 2 at milford & I love the school as much as they do! The staff is great & the schools cirriculum is great too. When we buy a house at the end of 2008, my children & me will miss milford :C

I positively love Milton Elementary. This is my son's first year at the school, my son is in the 3rd grade at Milton. He loves his teacher and the After School Program. He teachers always write notes home. I feel like they are his 2nd set of parents. I totally disagree with the low rating on your site. I feel at ease that my son's attends such a well rounded school.

My son attends Milford Elementary. I noticed the school only rated 2 on the great schools. I disagree with the rating myself. The teachers at Milford have gone above and beyond with their effort in teaching my child. The parent-teacher communication is excellent. Thankyou!
