At Milton, we emphasize critical thinking, active learning, and Design Thinking in our STEM, humanities, Hebrew, and Judaic Studies curricula.

We challenge students to reason, question, and analyze, and provide opportunities for independent thinking and creative expression. Milton students find joy in discovery and in intellectual, religious, and moral growth.

“When you enter the school, you can feel that it is a place of joy, a place of excitement, a place where students are engaged in what they were learning.”

Low student-teacher ratios allow Milton faculty to devote much attention to each child, addressing individual styles and rates of learning within the classroom.


Students are encouraged in an appropriate manner to fulfill their potential. Our approach to learning inspires students to make connections across disciplines and to establish a relationship between their studies and their experiences.
