Welcome to Milan High School
Welcome to Milan High School!
Milan High School combines a small school atmosphere of student individuality and personalization with a big school menu of class selection and extra-curricular opportunities. We are currently in the process of implementing a 1:1 curriculum that will officially roll-out at the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. The 1:1 initiative will place laptop computers in each of our students’ hands and will allow our teachers to deliver instruction through a variety of methods to meet the needs of ALL of our students. This initiative will propel MHS into the 21st century learning environment and enhance our students’ educational process as they prepare to enter an ever-changing digital world.
I believe the educational process must be a collaborative effort from teachers and parents. Our teachers are dedicated to our student’s success and our school vision statement: “Milan High School will provide caretakers of the Future who will be skilled, responsible, and independent life-long learners”. It is crucial that parents remain involved in their child’s educational progress through their high school career. It is through parent support that we can make a significant difference in the lives of our students.
I am very excited to assume my new responsibility as Principal of Milan High School. As a Milan High School graduate, I have a lot of pride in the Milan community and the quality education that I received while attending Milan High School. I believe in our community and I believe in our schools. It is with the greatest sincerity that I assume the personal responsibility to provide your child with a quality education and help them reach their fullest potential.
The Milan Way….Your Best Effort!

Chromebooks are Here and Milan is 1:1
Milan went to a 1:1 program this year, in which each student has a laptop that they take with them from class to class each day. Below is student Kenny Meyer's perspective of how the 1:1 integration has gone so far.
Chromebooks were the big thing here at Milan this year. They decided to go 1:1, which basically says you do many things through the internet.
The school chose to use the Dell distributors for the computers. Thes Chromebooks are very unique in many different ways, with many websites that the students and teachers use it is a great help to the coorporation. Some of these sites include Google apps and mybigcampus. MBC is something the teachers started using this year to share updates and calendars about what is happening in class. The battery life on these Chromebooks is very nice too. MIne usually when I get it full 100%, it will be on about 40%-50% at the end of the day.
I think the Chromebooks are very handy. Milan made a good choice and I personally think the students are liking the whole 1:1 thing.
