I have two sons who attended Milford High School after going through the Milford Exempted School District for their entire edduucation. The school has a lot of variety in curriculum choices. The 9th grade community did seem to help them make the adjustment to High School. The School had Ohio's Excellent ratitng for the past 10 years. Both my sons had positive experiences

I graduated from Milford, as did my Mom and aunt. My Mom and a friend wrote the words to 'Here's to Dear Ol' Milford High School.' in 1924. It is the school we wanted our kids to attend, and now some of our grandkids have attended also. Good school.When they started the first Milford High School Hall of Fame, my Mom was one of the first to have that honor.

Quality curriculum and student program. Very understanding and professional staff. Current levy issues do not detract from the high quality of the district.

Even being a student in MHS, you can tell that your future will be good. As I have a couple friends who have graduated and gone on to top colleges. They do give out excellent honors courses.

As a student at Milford, I would like to say that our academic programs are amazing, especially the selection of Honors courses. And academics are, after all, the whole point of a school.

We have had 4 daughters graduate from MHS. They have all been successful at IU, Marquette and EKU and are very prepared. As their Dad says, 'You get what you pay for.' Involvement in the school reeps benefits with extracurriculars in academic and non-sports as well as sports.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
