The outcomes our students experience each year are a testimony to the vision of our leadership and founding stakeholders. Millwood was founded by Dr. Louise Bagwell-Robinson. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive independent school in the Midlothian area, she dreamed of a nurturing environment with academic rigor and strong character education. Thanks to the support of trustees, faculty, parents, and members of the community, this dream became an inspiring reality in 1989. Despite modest facilities, parents saw the exceptional educational experience that Millwood’s faculty were committed to providing and soon classes overflowed. The entire school community celebrated when — just nine years after opening — Millwood moved to its current site: a wooded, 79-acre campus adjacent to the beautiful Woodlake neighborhood of Chesterfield County, VA. As Millwood School continues to grow, we are excited to add more academic buildings and athletic fields to enhance the learning environment for our students as well as welcome our second Head of School in July 2017, Mr. Christopher Ryan.
