Milton is amazing and we couldn't be happier. We had an incredible kindergarten experience there for our youngest child and were so impressed that we ended up switching two older siblings to the school the following year. We have been wholly impressed by all of the teachers and administrators. Milton is nurturing, academically challenging, and has brought out a true love of learning within our children. Milton is truly a gem of a school. My only complaint is that we didn't start there sooner!

Best school EVER. Can't say enough amazing things about the stellar, cutting-edge academics, including a strong emphasis on writing & research, critical thinking, and STEM, and innovation, as well as the warmest, most nurturing community. And the teachers and administration go above and beyond for students. I feel so fortunate to have found Milton for my kids. It is everything I was looking for - an exceptional education within a Torah-values environment. Happy mom (and happy kids).
