Learning at Millwood

Millwood School’s unique learning environment provides students with the tools necessary for academic excellence. Every grade level has a rigorous core curriculum of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The core curriculum is enhanced with instruction in world languages, technology, art, music, library skills, and physical education.
      Lower School students prepare for
​​​​              Monday Morning Meeting.
Millwood views these courses as integral parts of the curriculum. Our integrated curriculum offers a richly-textured, dynamic, and flexible course of study that promotes intellectual growth and creativity. Students express what they’ve learned through leadership and participation in public speaking, concerts, plays, our whole-school weekly meeting, and other events.
 

A Tailored Education

Millwood School addresses the individual needs of students by placing them at instructional levels commensurate with their abilities and by selecting materials that are appropriate for them. There is no ceiling in the curriculum to hold back advanced students, nor are there places to hide for students who may be experiencing difficulties. The school’s integrated curriculum includes a rich variety of subjects presented in innovative ways reflecting many different learning styles.
 

METHODS OF ACHIEVING 21ST CENTURY LEARNING:

 
      "Dr. Seuss" day was a hit among our students!
A COMMITMENT TO USING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
Beginning in Junior Kindergarten, students learn with the tools of their generation. Our classroom technology is ever-evolving to create a dynamic and engaging learning environment.
 
TEACHING STUDENTS TO FUNCTION IN A DIVERSE COMMUNITY
Millwood families reflect remarkable ethnic, cultural, and geographic diversity. This prepares students for the real world and helps them embrace the values of inclusion and respect.
 
IMPARTING VALUABLE LANGUAGE SKILLS
There is no better time than childhood to learn a world language. Accordingly, Millwood’s instruction begins in Junior Kindergarten. We offer exploratory opportunities in Spanish and French.
