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.
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.
