Millennium High School (MHS) provides a rigorous liberal arts academic program. We prepare graduates for a college of choice and empower students to set and reach meaningful goals. MHS also supports and embraces teacher leadership and provides an extensive professional development program based on content, pedagogy, youth development and advisement.
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 fund raising events throughout the year. All parents are automatically members of the PA. Please click on the Parents tab for more information.
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 newsletter!
Millennium was founded by former principal Robert Rhodes and former assistant principal Danielle Salzberg in 2002 with a $500,000 grant from New Visions for Public Schools. Lower Manhattan's Community Board 1 raised $14 million to build the school, which is located on 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 enrolls approximately 680 students.
