Principal's Welcome

 

Principal’s Message

Greetings Milford Parents and Guardians,

I hope you are having a great summer with your family. I am proud to announce that Milford is turning 70 during the month of September.  After graduating more than 300 seniors who earned over 3 million dollars in scholarships, Milford received a diversity award for increasing female access to AP Computer Science courses, which was highlighted with a featured school tour by the National Magnet Schools of America conference.  Further, Milford saw an 11% increase in incoming 9th graders who earned credits towards graduation. We had the unique opportunity to host our first National Magnet Conference Tour where our students led demonstrations and discussions on the importance of equitable programming to engage learners. This year, I am proud to announce that we are an official apprenticeship school. Our students will now be able to participate in paid apprenticeship opportunities in the Baltimore area that directly lead to career opportunities.

We are making enhancements to our campus and facilities, and you will notice signage throughout the campus to show our Miller pride to the community. We have a new dance room that expands access to non-magnet students. Our students requested more afterschool activities and we responded by offering two new opportunities, Step Team and Gamers Club. Our robotics team has grown, and we have received new equipment that will allow us to participate in larger competitions.

We just completed our first Summer CCBC dual enrollment course for our rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who had the unique opportunity to earn both college and high school credits. We are offering more of these dual college credit opportunities throughout the school year, please contact Ms. Whitaker for more information at twhitaker@bcps.org or at 443-809-0662. We also hosted our first Career Technology Education (CTE) camp for our incoming freshmen and sophomores. We ended the summer with an orientation camp to help incoming freshmen successfully transition to high school.  We will have celebration activities during the month of September followed by our Platinum 70th anniversary gala on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

I am looking forward to another amazing year of working together to ensure our students meet with success. I am so honored to serve as your Principal, and I thank you for your continuous support.
