Summer 2017

Dear Milford Parents/Guardians:   

We put the final touches on the 2016-2017 school year on Friday, May 26.  I have been a parent, teacher, and administrator in Milford for more than 24 years and know the feelings of satisfaction, happiness, and exhaustion at the end of a school year. It’s been a rewarding year for me personally in my first year as Superintendent.

In 2016-2017, Milford School District….

  • Opened two beautiful new elementary schools and looked ahead to replace our junior high school, preschool, and complete renovations to our high school. We are hoping for the state share of the funding to be approved in July 2018.

  • Led a visioning process to enable our school community to learn more about and discuss the educational facilities that will be necessary to support teaching/learning in the 21st century.  

  • Shared two online community surveys to solicit feedback on the facilities plan, communications, parent satisfaction, and homework.

  • Established new core beliefs to drive all of our decisions.

  • Celebrated 25 years of DARE training in our buildings.

  • Established a 24/7 new parent/student hotline to report student bullying and school violence.

  • Honored more than 400 veterans during Veteran’s Day celebrations districtwide.

  • Recognized three National Merit Semifinalists and five commended students.

  • Received the top five-star rating for Milford Preschool program.

  • Celebrated many local, regional, state, national and even international student successes in fine arts, music, academics, and athletics.

  • Expanded STEM opportunities for our students.

  • Received the Auditor of State award for a perfect financial audit.

  • Sent hundreds of students into the community to serve others.

  • Honored exceptional teachers of the year, classified staff of the year, and retirees for their dedicated service to our district.

Our district and community offers a variety of activities for students of all ages this summer. If you are looking for summer activities for your child, please visit the community flyers page on our website under quick links at www.milfordschools.org. Summer reading assignments for our junior high and high school students can be found at summerreading.milfordschools.org.

Our buildings, except for Milford High School, will be closed in July. If you have any questions over summer, the district’s central office on Garfield Avenue will remain open and our central office staff can be reached at (513) 831-1314. The office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Milford Exempted Village School District Superintendent. My guiding principle has always been and will continue to be that every child has unique gifts and can develop the skills to achieve their dreams. Thank you for partnering with us to help each child reach his or her dream.

Have a wonderful summer, 

Nancy House

Quality Profile

Milford Schools is proud to present the fourth edition of the Quality Profile, an overview of what makes our district unique with highlights of the quality education and services offered during the 2015-2016 school year.

"The Quality Profile is a great reflection of who we are as a district from our amazing STEM offerings to our stellar creative and performing arts programs. It not only showcases our academic offerings, but the service learning and community service programs that make our district stand apart," said Milford Superintendent, Nancy House.

Milford is one of approximately 70 school districts throughout Ohio releasing a Quality Profile, a comprehensive, community-oriented companion to the state’s Local Report Card. The profile includes additional accountability measures that better define a high-quality education and are not included in the state’s report card.

The Quality Profile helps characterize the overall educational value of public education beyond standardized testing. The content is based on six categories: academics, arts, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, student leadership and activities, and student services.

The Alliance for High Quality Education sponsors the Quality Profile. This statewide education consortium works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
