Mission and Core Values

Our Mission

At Milken Community School, we think education is more than what you know. Our School, founded on Jewish values, is about who our children can become and how they can help others become who they might be. 
Because the world our children will create tomorrow is born in the School we build today, our mission is to educate our children so they can surpass us. 

*Inspired by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
