The Milford School District provides an authentic, rigorous, and personalized experience for all students, so they can pursue their passions and become reflective, empowered, and contributing citizens of an ever-changing world. It educates more than 2,332 Pre-K to 12 students and employs approximately 378 staff members. It is comprised of 1 high school & ATC, 1 middle school, 2 elementary schools and 1 alternative school.
Entry into the school district officially begins at Jacques Memorial Elementary School which focuses on literacy, communication, social-emotional learning, and beginning technology skills. These foundational skills are then being developed, nurtured, and strengthened at Heron Pond Elementary School.
A full-time gifted and talented instruction is offered to selected students and a unique educational commitment of is extended to students with special needs through a smaller, alternative school environment. Also, a robust instrumental music program is being offered to third grade students because we believe that instrumental lessons offered to students in the elementary grades will provide a solid foundation of skills to feed and expand the middle school and high school bands. The Milford School District offers a full array of interscholastic athletic activities, including swimming and wrestling, in the state’s intermediate division.
Meanwhile, our Milford Middle School helps our students transition from elementary school students to high school readiness by providing them opportunities to grow and develop into young adults. Respect and responsibility for self, others, and property is promoted as students are guided toward their fullest potential in academics and citizenship.
Lastly, Milford High School provides students with rigorous and varied curriculum through multiple course offerings. The school engages all students in authentic experiences and motivates them to achieve their potential. Career Technical Education (CTE) classes at the Milford High School’s Applied Technology Center (ATC) offer multiple career opportunities in a variety of fields. The ATC currently offers nine career clusters/pathways for students graduating with advanced skills in biotechnology, precision machining, engineering, culinary arts, business/accounting/marketing, video production, graphic arts, construction technology, and computer science.

The oldest document that exists in the archives of Milford Historical Society is an old leather-covered volume entitled: "Records of the first school Class in Milford" with the report of a meeting in December 1788. Based on other old records related to this particular year, speculations have been made that a schoolhouse was built in 1788 at a location west of the meeting house on the site of a later brick school which is still standing and is known as a Krush block.
