I am a graduate at milford High and i Just have to say first off the parents who are saying that milford doesnt give enough homework you need to check the classes in which your child is enrolled in for the high level classes i use to have at least two to three hours of hw if i wanted to do it correctly and many of the teachers do know what they are talking about. I loved milford and its ethics. Compared to many of the people ive met at college milford seems to hold up pretty good against almost all the school in the state i give them an A++

We have two boys at Milford High School. They have thoroughly enjoyed their time their. The administration is excellent with the kids. The curriculum is very good. Their are plenty of the sports teams for the kids to participate in. We have been very pleased with Milford High and the level of education our boys have received. Ray & Yvette Fellows

I am a student at MHS, and so far it has been the best experience of my life. The teachers are nice and really understand what they are teaching and how to teach us. I strongly disagree with the parents who said that there si never homework,and that the majority of the kids have been to court. I get homework everyday, along with my friends, and most of the children at my school have never even been in a courtroom. The best part of MHS for me is the Performing arts. There is no doubt that Milford has the best music and theatre program in MA. The students are eager to learn, work together well and the teachers love what they do. Milford High School gets an A+++ from me. I look forward to going to school every day.

I also am a class of 2002 graduate and I must say, my high school experience was wonderful. I feel that I was very well prepared for college and at my present job, hiring people for temp jobs, I find that it absolutly depends on the teacher and student relationship when it comes to skills. I have applicants from Harvard looking for temp positions that can't write a resume to save their lives...and then I get a beautiful resume from a high school junior. It totally just depends on a students own work ethic. The school is great, amazing faculty and staff, the best music and theater program you will see in the state of MA!

I have a child in Milford High School (10th grade) and am very pleased in general. I find the teachers to be very good at what they do. There are plenty of extra curricular activities. And for us have found the administration to go above and beyond duty whenever necessary. My child has plenty of homework and has done well. I think the majority of kids are good kids. And most have not been in the court system. I've never seen that fact posted anywhere.

I was just reading some of the comments made by concered parents. I attended Milford High and graduated in 2002. I had amazing teachers and I am thankful for that. Once I got to college I was absolutely shocked that many to the majority of students in my class did not know how to write papers. They did not know how to cite information or do work cited pages. However, I do believe it really depends on what teachers a student has and how involved parents get in making sure their children get the teacher that can teach well. The music department is absolutely amazing, trust me, after observing some schools in inner cities, we really should be thankful of our well rounded academics.

I just enrolled in Milford this year and out of the 3 high school's I've attended, Milford is, without a doubt, the best out of all 3. The students are respectful, most of the teaching methods are impeccable, the administration is on the ball at all times. They offer music theory, which most school tend to overlook and disregard, their music program all together its wonderful! They offer many chances for the students to get involved in the community and in the school, and most students take those chances at bettering the town of Milford. I'd give Milford an A+

The Milford High School is a mess. Theres so many problems. MHS needs to start with a new administration from the principal down to the Vice principal. The school work is very easy and my child never gets homework. MHS is very disapointing.

Overall I am satisfied with the school. However, I believe that there could be more emphasis in two areas. One would be homework. There is not enough of it or it seems that it is not challenging. Make homework fun and enlightening, not something that will completely stress out a kid. The other would be to open up discussions about current events. Don't try to sway them one way or another, but allow them to talk about what is happening in their world, study the facts and work towards practical solutions from their perspective. This world will one day be theirs and they need to understand and respect the viewpoints of others and work towards creating civil understanding among all.

I am very dissapointed at the middle school level. The schools have an abundance of older teachers that should have retired when they lost interest in teaching. The children are not being stimulated or challenged. The children NEVER have any homework and mine are in 'AP' classes. I think in general the schools are hyper focused on MCAS and as a result are not teaching the kids what they 'really' need to know

I disagree with the other review. I do not believe that the parent making those accusations has correct information. The majority of Milford students have not even seen the inside of a courtroom. Also, with the introduction of character education, the students are learning the skills needed to become productive members of society. The administration has strong control of the students. When a problem arises, it is addressed in an immediate and consequential manner. I do not believe parents should attack a school and the administration when they do not even have accurate information. It appears that this parent had their own personal problem with the school and took it out on this school as a whole.

As a parent in Milford,MA I am very worried with the Milford School System. Children are not learning the skill needed to become respectful,diverse and productive members of the community. Did anyone ever analyse the police Reports in both Juvenile and adult court records in Milford against the children in the school system? It is sad a majority of the children are in court? The data is alarming. I rate this school among the lowest. Civil Rights violation against seniors, I am not surprised. These kids are out of control.
