Good Evening Millennium Community,

Thank you for your support and quick response to the plumbing problem that happened earlier today. Upon further investigation it was discovered that one of the main underground pipes is damaged. This damage will require excavation of the back area and intermittent shut down of the restrooms on campus. Due to these circumstances school will not be in session next week in addition to the Thanksgiving Break. There will be no school from November 12th through the 23rd. Students will return to campus on November 26th. The office staff will be available during the week of November 13th-16th if you have any questions. The school calendar will be revised at the next Board meeting in order to make up for the unexpected 4 days off. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Burns at Mburns@mchs.school.

Thank you again for your support and commitment to Millennium Charter High School!

Millennium Charter High School is a community, not an institution. It’s small enough to be close and caring and big enough to provide opportunities unlike any other high school in Monterey County. At our State of the Art Facilities at the Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE) and Sherwood Park, curriculum and instruction are based on hands-on learning in the arts and technology. We have all the classes students need to be prepared for college as well as for careers in Arts, Media, and Entertainment. At the MCOE site, students have access to a Digital Media Lab featuring laptop computers and state of the art editing software, a black box theater, a high-definition television studio with professional control rooms, and a radio station designed for broadcast as well as podcast production.

MCHS is an independent, direct-funded public charter school with two locations in Salinas, California: at the Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE) and the Sherwood campus at 940 N. Main St. MCHS’s curriculum and instruction are based on hands-on learning in the arts and technology, integrated into content areas. Students from throughout Monterey County receive college preparatory education in which the Common Core standards, Visual and Performing Arts standards, and Digital Media Arts standards are delivered through the lens of four School-wide Learner Outcomes (SLOs): Creativity, Self-awareness, Empathy, and Critical Thinking. MCHS’s program fosters an academic environment in which students see the relevance and importance of their education. The school’s focus on Digital Media Arts is unique to the area. MCHS is currently both the smallest public high school and the only site-based charter high school in the county.

Millennium Charter High School graduates will be prepared for college and ready for employment in the evolving world of Media Arts Technology through a balance of traditional academics and real-world, hands-on experiences. Our students will discover their unique gifts and talents and how to use them as they work individually and collaboratively. Engaged and educated in a true community of learners, our students will be empowered to realize their dreams.
