Finding the Right Fit
Parenting is a tough job, and making decisions about our kids’ education can be stressful. Middle school is a very special time, when students are ready to step out of their childhood and into early adolescence. They look older on the outside, but are still young on the inside. We want them to be challenged enough to be ready for high school, yet safe enough to still be themselves and not lose their love for learning.
The good news is… they have you as parents. We live in a community with a lot of great education choices, and they feel your presence in guiding them. We’re looking for students and parents who deeply value self-awareness and reflection, intellectual curiosity, empathy, and continual personal growth. Equally importantly, we’re looking for those who are excited to help build a community, who understand the entrepreneurial challenges of a young school and are inspired to create a diverse, inclusive and loving place.
To us, there is no such thing as a perfect student, nor a perfect school. For parents, we invite your authenticity around sharing both strengths and challenges for your child. We review each student holistically, knowing they are far more than a GPA, and that often their challenges are the ingredients for future strengths.
Here’s a look at some of our founding families
Diversity & Inclusion
Millennium School serves both students and community best when it represents a wide range of perspectives, talents, and experiences. We define diversity broadly, embracing students and families who reflect diversity in gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, culture, family composition, sexual orientation, physical differences, and socioeconomic background.
Our commitment to diversity stems from our developmental approach. We know that middle school is an essential period for identity formation, when adolescents begin to answer fundamental questions about themselves. To answer these questions well, few experiences are more powerful than membership in a diverse, inclusive community. Such a community pushes students to learn how to incorporate multiple viewpoints and experiences; it enables them to honor what is unique within themselves; and it develops the empathy, social agility, and cross-cultural competence that is essential to life in the twenty-first century.
life after millennium: high School!
Millennium School provides students with the foundation they need to be successful in high school, college, and beyond. While in middle school our students learn how to study, to organize their materials and their time, and to seek out support when they need it. Millennium also provides SSAT testing prep throughout 7th grade, and application counseling to help 8th grade families find the right fit for high school.
We encourage Millennium students to follow their own path, and we are proud of the broad range of high schools our students have been accepted into already:
Bay School ● Branson ● Drew ● International ● Jewish Community HS ● Lick-Wilmerding ● Marin School ● Nueva Upper School ● Sacred Heart ● San Domenico ● Stern School ● University High School ● Urban School ● Waldorf HS ● SF School of the Arts (SOTA)
