Milford, the "Small City with a Big Heart!" was recently rated one of the Best Small Towns in Connecticut by House Beautiful, a Hearst publication. Milford, with its 17 miles of Long Island Sound coastline, has a small town feel, filled with charm and a sense of history, while also having a rich and diversified economy, beautiful beaches, and a charming downtown. There are wonderful cultural, recreational, and employment opportunities, a hospital and a mall and a top-rated school district.

The Milford Public Schools are committed to attracting, recruiting, retaining and fostering a diverse community of talented professionals as well as creating and maintaining a sense of belonging for all members of our learning community. Our 1000+ dedicated professionals support more than 5000 students in our 14 schools. Our vision is for our students to:

  • be curious and challenge themselves,

  • comprehend, organize and analyze information in order to solve problems and articulate solutions,

  • engage in self-care to result in a healthy lifestyle,

  • identify and regulate their emotions and behaviors, set and achieve important personal and academic goals, use social-awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships, and demonstrate decision making and responsible actions to achieve success in school and life,

  • be global citizens who think and act beyond self towards service to others and their community, and

  • be imaginative, curious, and challenge themselves to make, shape, and invent their learning experiences.

Teaching and Learning in the Milford Public Schools is built upon the foundation of our model of High-Quality Instruction, which is anchored in The Developmental Relationships and Equity Frameworks and Milford's Vision of the Learner. These elements are surrounded by our commitment to ongoing and interconnected Professional Learning for all adult learners.
