The Millard Public Schools is a school district in the southwest part of Omaha, Nebraska. The first school in Millard was established in the fall of 1870. The school district is named for Ezra Millard (1833-1886) who platted Millard, a mostly uninhabited prairie 12 miles southwest of the city. The former city of Millard was annexed by the City of Omaha in 1971 after a lengthy legal battle. Today the Millard School District has diverse programs such as Nebraska’s only K-12 International Baccalaureate program, offered at Millard North High school, Millard North Middle School and Aldrich Elementary. The district also offers the Core Academy and Montessori, as well as many other programs.

Thirteen Millard schools have earned the Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education.[citation needed] Kiplinger's Magazine cited the "top-rated, nationally recognized" Millard School District as one of the reasons Omaha rates No. 3 in the list of the Top 10 Best Cities for 2008.[citation needed]

Millard is the third largest district in Nebraska. The district currently has four high schools: Millard North High School, Millard West High School, Millard South High School, and Millard Horizon High School.
