In order to become an exemplar of Jewish education nationally and a sought-after independent school in the region, we must intentionally connect with local, national, and international Jewish and non-sectarian communities to expand the student body, attract experienced educators, and engage current and prospective members of the philanthropic community.
To that end, our initiatives over the next five years include the following:
MILTON has established a reputation for developing unique curricula and programs including in Hebrew language and Judaic Studies instruction, our Jewish space curriculum, Design Lab programming and the creation of our of our own siddurim, to name a few. As our teachers look for leadership and growth opportunities, we will explore engagement with other Jewish day schools and synagogue-based weekend or evening religious schools to share best practice. This will include an assessment of the availability of grants for teachers to develop curriculum, assessment tools, and other projects during the summer and the possibility of establishing a center for professional excellence where educators from other Jewish institutions might participate in short or long-term professional development programming and explore providing curriculum and materials to other schools who are looking to purchase or adopt those resources.
