History[edit]

The Milton-Union Exempted Village School District was formed in 1936 when the Milton Village District and Union Township District merged. The former building was erected in 1938 and has been renovated and added to many times during its existence.

Voters recently approved a measure to build a new K-12 building. The Old High School, elementary and junior high have be demolished. The new building has been built and is in use currently.
