Integrated Experiences at MCHS
In conjunction with Dr. David Meyers and his graduate students from the UCLA Jewish History program, the educators at Milken designed a state-of-the-art integrated two-year exploration of Jewish and World History beginning with the Age of Discovery through post-World War II Europe and the development of the modern state of Israel.
The Visual arts program provides multiple opportunities for students to explore both self and Jewish expression in a variety of media.
All seniors can choose to challenge themselves in the year-long AP Literature and Composition/High Honors Jewish Philosophy seminar (Course Syllabus and Course Schedule.) Students who take the course are both prepared for the Advanced Placement Literature exam in May and upon completion of the course receive college credit from the University of Judaism, transferable to most major colleges and universities in the country.
