Milner Middle School strives to create a strong family and community connection; a positive school environment, including non-school factors; effective leadership, effective teachers and staff; an effective curriculum and instruction program; effective use of time; and effective use of data to inform decision-making.

As a member of the newly-created Commissioner's Network, Milner's school design was formed in partnership with the state, parents, teachers and community members.

Special Features and Highlights

• More instructional time during the school year and during the summer months.
• A leadership team composed of a principal, an associate principal, a family and community.
• The addition of 20 academic assistants to be instructional partners to the teachers, thereby lowering the student-to-staff ratio from 12 students to one adult to eight students to one adult.
• A room parent to support each classroom.
• Community-School programming, including an after-school program aligned to instruction.
• Additional supports for Milner’s growing population of English Language Learners.
• A continuing oversight and monitoring role for the Milner Turnaround Committee to track progress and provide feedback.
