My daughter is in 2nd grade here and my son just started kindergarten both had/had Ms. Kozan for K she is great. The teachers and staff are all great. They just rebuilt the entire school building - it is very nice. The school is excellent, my kids both love it and have learned a lot and have had a positive experience.
my child went to Milton in the special needs class...my child regressed by over a year within one calendar year....the aides were nice but untrained , speech was horrible, OT outsourced (a string of new hire OTs with no skill), and the kids were left frequently with just the aides (teacher was out a lot)...no support from the psychologist...horrible...the school is beautiful, community very nice, kids very nice but the actual program horrible...do not show up to this district without an attorney...they will present you with a beautifully wrapped 'package' that is nothing more than an empty box to warehouse special needs kids...they should be ashamed!! I would never let any child that has any special needs attend this school...it is not equipped to support them and the special education director could care less....
Our children arrived in 4th and 5th grade of Milton, coming from Switzerland and only mastering a very basic level of English. We speak dutch at home, our kids have their education in german. The Milton experience has been fantastic ! Great, highly qualified teachers, diverse school programme incl. extra-cirriculum, very active parents teachers organization. The english as second language (ESL) programme and flexible attitude of the teachers, has greatly helped our kidds to get over the language hurdle. Milton's programme is intense and advanced. Highly recommended ! Go Milton !
As a new parent in the school, I am thoroughly impressed by the entire Milton Experience. The quality of the academic programs are superior and the environment is very warm and nurturing. The music and art programs are excellent. There are many after school programs offered by the PTO and much of the organized sports at this level are provided by the city and the YMCA. The parent involvement is fabulous and the accessibility of the faculty to the parents is noteworthy. My son loves his school and is having a wonderful experience at Milton.
Excellent school. Great academics; wonderful, dedicated teachers. Overall a superb curriculum. Private school education in a public school system. Small classes; great teacher to student ratio. Very caring, involved principal with the highest academic standards, but interested in the students as a whole, not just academically. Great environment to learn.
