Absolutely wonderful school! My daughter has had a wonderful experience at MHS! The administration and faculty really care about the education of their students.

Neither my husband nor I grew up or graduated in Milan. I have three children who now attend Milan Special School District. They really have top notch teachers and they love their Bulldogs....although football is the favorite, they have great success in all sports and activities.

The dedication of teachers and parents to make it a better school.

I did not attend Milan, but had three children that did. This school system is one of the best if not the best in Tennessee. All of the teachers and faculty have been nothing but great to me, my wife and my children. The entire school system as well as the Milan community are No.1 in my book. I am not originally from Milan, but I am a Bulldog.

I went to school in Milan from second to tenth grade. It was the worst school system I have ever attended. I never learned anything in this school system, yet I had a 4.0 GPA. How is it possible? The only thing good that came from Milan School District is Mr. Brown the High School music director.

Milan High School is a great school. I have a son graduating this year. I also went to school in Milan from 6th thru 12th. Milan Bulldogs are great. Football is the #1 sport in Milan.

I graduated in the Fall 2001. I had to stay in school an extra semester to graduate. I had been to 4 different High Schools within my 4 years, and Milan High School was definatly the best one. A local school to compare it to was Chester County High School, which since then has a new Vice Principal and become a better place. I give Milan High School an overall 5 out of 5 rating. The teachers really care and get involved in student learning (unlike some schools where they just give out assignments). They have many activities to get involved in, to include football, band, Auto Body, DECA, and many more. They had 'Pep Ralleys' almost every week to keep school spirit up, which was the only High School I had been to to do so. You should feel very good about sending your kids there or going there yourself.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
