Welcome to the Milford School District
Located at the foot of the Monadnock Mountains just ten minutes from Nashua and thirty minutes from Manchester, Milford, also known as the Granite Town, provides its 15,000 residents with an ideal blend of traditional New England culture with close proximity to urban businesses and entertainment. Like the community it represents, the Milford School District provides rich and diverse educational experiences to its youth.
The Milford Schools educate 2,800 pre-school through high school students within its five school facilities. Our two hundred fifty teachers provide a highly personalized education to our students, offering curriculum and instructional methodologies designed to allow each student to achieve to his or her potential. Challenging school programming and a wealth of co-curricular opportunities are available to students. From on-site, before school child care to programs for advanced learners at all of its schools, there is something for every student and family in the Milford school system. The Jacques Memorial and Heron Pond elementary schools provide our children with an excellent foundation for educational advancement while the Milford Middle School meets the needs of developing adolescents. The unique educational commitment of Milford extends to its special needs population by providing identified students with a smaller, alternative school environment.
The Milford High School and Applied Technology Center serves as a model for real world, integrated learning experiences. Students may select from courses such as bio-technology, pre-engineering, and culinary arts in addition to Advanced Placement courses. The high school is proud to admit better than 50 students from other districts who, on a part-time basis, desire participation in the Applied Technology Center. Milford offers a full array of interscholastic athletic activities, including swimming and wrestling, in the state’s intermediate division. In 2010, our high school Basketball team won the Class I State Championship and our “We The People” team is a consistent State champion. Nearly seventy five per cent of Milford students go on to post-secondary education.
