Mr. Downs is very proud of Millbrook and would list the following among its most important characteristics:
The clarity and importance of our mission. We know who we are and while one of our goals is to provide excellent preparation for college, we see our fundamental purpose to be to ready our students for lives which are satisfying and successful. More specifically, we seek to instill in each of our students curiosity, respect, integrity, stewardship of the natural world, and a commitment to serving others.
The exceptional talents and commitment of our faculty. These individuals have remarkable energy and ability and they find nothing more gratifying than using their talents and experience to help their students grow in healthy and substantial ways. They are an impressive group.
The richness of our program. At Millbrook students do not have to sacrifice choice and opportunity to benefit from the close individual attention and the strong sense of community which is so much a part of this small school. In fact, it is the combination of that choice and our size which creates the school’s hallmark - involvement. Millbrook students are fully immersed in the life of their school. They are encouraged to explore their talents and interests and to contribute to the well-being of others."

The next best thing to a Millbrook School visit, is to sit back, relax, and click your way through our website. Get to know the beauty of our campus, the depth and richness of our programs, and the warmth and caring that define this unparalleled institution. As a Millbrook graduate, former director of admission, and now proud headmaster, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to your cyber visit and hope that I will have the chance to meet you and to tell you about Millbrook in-person soon. In the meantime, enjoy each and every stop on our site and don't hesitate to be in touch if I can be of further help (email@example.com).
With every good wish,
Jonathan Downs '98
