Touring our campus or attending an open house event is an important step in becoming a part of the Millwood family. Not only do these opportunities allow you to see all that our facilities have to offer, they help you experience the close-knit community our students enjoy.We look forward to meeting you face to face, introducing you to teachers and school leaders, and allowing you to explore our beautiful campus.
THERE ARE NUMEROUS OPPORTUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO VISIT US:
- Open House Events: Our Open House events (occurring each fall and winter) allow parents to hear from our administrators, explore our facilities, and see firsthand if Millwood School is a good fit for their family.
- Private Tours: We happily offer personal tours of Millwood throughout the school year and summer months. This is a vital step in the admissions process and gives you an opportunity to experience how our learning environment is different.
- Student Day Visits: Student shadowing is a great way for your child to become familiar with Millwood School before they even enroll! Prospective students are assigned a “buddy” at their grade level and spend the day by their side. Pre-admission testing is also completed during this time.
Our very own Claire Hollingsworth is doing such great things and was recently filmed in a recent “Science Matters” episode. Way to go Claire - keep up the good work. Check out the video below!
WALLOPS ISLAND — A spacecraft carrying 40 mice, two flying robots and the dreams of hundreds of science students is flying to its scheduled rendezvous with the International Space Station after a flawless launch from a state-owned regional spaceport here on Wednesday afternoon.The Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft separated from the Antares rocket nine minutes after the 4:46 p.m. launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, based at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility on this barrier island along Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The spacecraft, named after U.S. astronaut Roger Chaffee, is scheduled to dock with the space station orbiting Earth early Friday.Before approaching the space station, Cygnus will deploy 63 miniature satellites, called ThinSats, that students in Virginia and other states helped to design for an inaugural experiment for bringing huge amounts of data from the Earth’s outer atmosphere into classrooms across the state and country.Earlier in the month, Millwood School middle school students traveling to this exact location and explored the region via scientificy and organic exploration!
