Administration and Staff
Principal Colin McEvoy is a founding faculty member at Millennium High School. Formerly a Peace Corps volunteer in Estonia, where he taught English as a second language, he received a Master's degree at Columbia University Teachers College. The faculty members of MHS all have Master's degrees in their respective fields, and many have been recipients of highly competitive grants. Some of our faculty participate in professional development programs such as the Pace Inquiry Learning Collaborative
, while others are recipients of fellowships from Math for America
and Fund for Teachers
The Parents Association
at MHS is very active and provides resources to the school that would otherwise be unavailable. They meet once a month and hold a number of fundraising events
throughout the year. All parents are automatically members of the PA.
The Millennium High School Alumni Association
was created in 2016--ten years after the first class graduated from MHS! Our mission is to foster a lifelong relationship between MHS and its alumni. We want to provide a professional networking platform for our diverse alumni base while promoting and facilitating alumni sponsorship of academic and extracurricular programs. Once an MHS student graduates, they are a new voice in the Association and a member for life! You can learn more about us at our website
, by joining our Facebook group
, or by signing up for our Alumni Association Newsletter
Millennium was founded by former principal Robert Rhodes and former assistant principal Danielle Salzberg in 2002. Madelyn Wils, as chair of Manhattan Community Board 1, led an effort raising $16 million to build the school and coordinated planning and site construction. Additional funding included a $500,000 grant from New Visions for Public Schools with money donated from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
, and contributions from the Carnegie Corporation
and the Open Society Institute
. The school occupies the 11th, 12th and 13th floors of 75 Broad Street, the 1929 "International Telephone Building." Mr. Rhodes has been a public school teacher and administrator for more than 20 years. During his tenure at Millennium, he received Clark University's Secondary Educator of the Year Award in 2003, and in 2008 was awarded a Cahn Fellowship designed by Teachers College to recognize outstanding principals. MHS' current enrollment is approximately 660 students.
