2015-2016 “Schools Of Distinction” Awards

April 6, 2017

What makes us in Milford tremendously proud and what I believe is truly special is that this distinction award is a testament to demonstrating equality in education. We are a diverse community and this award is given to schools that have produced an environment in which ALL students have been given the opportunity to succeed. It is also a special award because it shows not only high achievement, but also growth and tremendous improvement. This is a testament to all of the hard work of administrators, teachers, staff, students and parents have put in to raise the standards of education. It is something I think we as a community should all be tremendously proud of and I hope you will all continue to strive for excellence.
