Dr. Peter Burrows, Superintendent of the Milton Public Schools 

It is with great excitement that I join Milton Public Schools! Peter Headshot 11-2021.jpgThe clear commitment of the Milton community to support our schools and our students has been palpable to me over the last months during my visits. I, too, am committed to the work of continuing with excellence, while addressing where we are falling short. As Milton’s superintendent, I will lead with transparency, clarity, and collaboration to create the best experience for our students.

There is great capacity in Milton, with a strong leadership team, exceptional staff, and a committed community. The last years have been challenging both locally and globally, and we carry considerable strength in Milton to respond to the challenges and build forward to address learning loss and reimagine what’s possible. I believe that all students can learn at a deep level, and am absolutely committed to lead towards access, success, and belonging for all students.
