Semester Exams

As we sink our teeth into the 2nd Quarter of the 2015-2016 school year, teachers are preparing for semester exams, which will take place Monday, December 14 through Thursday, December 17.  Exams are scheduled to last for 90 minutes, and should provide our students an opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of content learned over the first semester.  Exams are an important component of the semester and final grades for students and are weighted as 20% of each student’s semester grade for courses.  Regular, daily attendance is expected by all students for their exams.  Parents are asked to plan accordingly to ensure their students are in attendance for their exams as scheduled.  The schedule for exams is available for viewing here.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Our second round of Parent/Teacher Conferences is upon us.  Parents will receive an email this week with instructions for signing up for conferences with your child’s teachers.  Conferences are an important part of the educational process and empower all of us to approach educating our students as a team.  We look forward to seeing many of you on November 19, 3pm-6:30pm for conferences.  If you did not receive the email with instructions, or would like to view a copy online, please click here.

AP Capstone Coming to MHS

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of AP Capstone to Milford High School, beginning in the 2016-2017 school year.  The AP Capstone program is offered through College Board, who also oversees the Advanced Placement course offerings across the globe.  Schools who have been invited to offer AP Capstone have completed a rigorous application process and have demonstrated over time a commitment to preparing students for college through a robust AP curriculum.  Milford High School is thrilled to be one of only eight schools in Ohio selected to provide AP Capstone to students.  A team of MHS teachers and administrators is currently planning for implementation of AP Capstone next year.  As more details become available, they will be shared with students and parents.  In the meantime, should you desire to know more about AP Capstone, College Board has made available a number of resources on their website: https://lp.collegeboard.org/ap-capstone
