Community Outreach-We Need Your Help
We need you! Milton High School’s Launch Program is looking for community partners to work with our students during the 2022-2023 school year. The Launch Program, which services students with a range of special needs, is looking for local businesses to support students in the development of their pre-vocational and vocational skills. Your support can help our students become more involved in the community and develop the skills needed for a successful transition to life beyond Milton High School. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Mark Harrison, Assistant Director for Pupil Personnel Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for your interest and investment in our students.
Last Day of School, Friday, June 24th
As we close out the school year, I want to remind all students and families that the last day of school is Friday, June 24th. While we may not have a formal exam schedule in place, teachers and departments will continue to have projects, assessments and exams up to and including the last day of school. Students are expected to be in school until June 24th and if a student misses any end of the year assessments they will be asked to come in over the summer to complete them so final grades can be issued. Teachers will provide administration with the assessments and students will be given time on July 11th and 12th to complete them at Milton High School.
MHS Internship Program
This spring MHS piloted a new internship program under the direction of Joyce White. Some Milton High School seniors volunteered at various businesses throughout town. The students were awarded the privilege to interact with the business community of their choosing to exercise their intellectual curiosity in a field of interest. The program provided hands-on learning opportunities that challenged them outside of the classroom, developed civic awareness and established a deeper understanding of responsibility.
The Milton Chamber of Commerce supported the program and students chose the following businesses to explore: BID-Milton, who hosted 7 students; Julia Bradley, Kayvoune Charles, Taliah Gabriel, Alona Lynch, Madeleine Miller, Jared Mitchell, and Nkechinyere (Kechie)Onyiriuka. Milton Public Schools Consolidated Service Department hosted Joseph Pender, and James Jenkins. The Milton Times hosted Jordan Elliott, and the Eustace Estates partnered with Diana Duran.
The program ended with a celebration of success and was attended by our students, business partners, family and administration. Students expressed their gratitude by creating a video and speaking directly to their mentors, and they prepared swag bags, snacks and drinks. Matt Levine, Volunteer Services coordinator of BID Milton, spoke of his admiration for the students which he supervised during their weeks of service.
Thank you to everyone involved in promoting this amazing new program for the Milton Public Schools.
We look forward to building more relationships with community businesses in years to come!

Anonymous Bullying & Incident Reporting
As discussed at a recent School Committee meeting, the Milton Public Schools has updated our school incident reporting forms so people can specify incidents on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion and more. The Milton High School incident form can be found here and each school has a form linked on the front of their school’s website and they are also linked on the front of the MPS website, the MPS Education Equity page and MPS Anti-Bullying page.
MPS is unable to serve summer meals this year, as we do not meet federal guidelines. There are local resources available to all families and the list of local sites can be found here.
If your family is in need of further resources, please reach out to MPS Family Outreach Liaison Marti O’Keefe McKenna via email or phone (617-980-7343).
