Welcome to our Milverton Public School homepage. We are so glad that you found our home on the web, and hope that the information and resources available here can share a small glimpse of just how great it is to be a Milverton Mustang!
Our school sits on the site of the former Milverton High School, and some parts of that original iteration still remain. Our school gymnasium and intermediate wing have many features reminiscent of secondary schools in our district, but have been updated and maintained to meet the everyday needs of current students. The original main building, a 3 storey grand brick structure, was removed in 2010, making way for updated office space, our spacious and welcoming library, as well as staff work space, and accessibility features, allowing us to share our school with all who wish to join us. Milverton Public School, like all other schools in Avon Maitland District School Board, is a safe and inclusive place for all members of our school community – students, staff, families, and community members.
At the same time as welcoming and supporting all who enter our building, we work to provide a rigorous, engaging, supportive learning environment for all students. From our Early Years team, through our Primary, and Junior divisions, up to our Intermediate team, we are fortunate to have talented, compassionate, experienced staff in each one of our classrooms. Curricular programs such as French, Music, the Arts, and Physical Education are also supported by subject specialists who help students develop skills and explore new activities and opportunities. We are also able to provide supports for students with all types of strengths and needs through our excellent team of learning and behavioural support staff. Our updated library and office areas provide students, staff, and families opportunities to connect with very knowledgeable staff who can answer questions and make suggestions to help enhance their experience here at Milverton Public School.
Staff and students work together at Milverton Public School to extend student learning beyond the classroom. Many opportunities exist for student leadership, whether it be supporting our traditional student council and intramural sports and activities, or something a little more unique such as coding and robotics groups. A number of student initiated, student led groups exist as well, providing opportunities for growth and learning in many different areas. Given our unique location, nestled within the beautiful, growing community of Milverton, surrounded by a thriving agricultural area, we strive to provide a learning environment that offers something for everyone.
Our school is fortunate to be supported by a generous and caring community. We have recently completed work on a number of projects to update and enhance our school yard, initiated by School Council, but funded by donations from individuals, families, and businesses from the area. Parents and community volunteers make up our School Council, but are also an integral part of the supports within the school. A number of active volunteers read with students, support field trips and activities, help with fundraisers, and our healthy snack program.
Milverton Public School is renowned locally, and throughout the Avon Maitland District School Board as a welcoming, supportive, dynamic school. Feedback from system level staff, as well as from those who have joined our staff or community from elsewhere, regularly reminds us that we are unique, in so many amazing ways. We look forward to you learning more about what we have to offer, and the ways we can support all of our students as they experience a positive, inclusive learning environment, while we strive to maximize learning outcomes for each one of them.
Thank you for visiting the Milverton Public School website. We appreciate your interest in our school!
