Millard House II was appointed Superintendent of Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS), effective July 1, by Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.
House comes to PGCPS from the Houston Independent School District. During his two-year tenure with the largest school district in Texas and the eighth largest in the country, he implemented HISD’s first comprehensive five-year strategic plan shaped and guided by community input. Under his leadership, the administration delivered on the plan by lifting 40 of 50 campuses off the state failing list, increasing teacher compensation by 11%, making a nurse, librarian, and counselor available on every campus, addressing a structural deficit, and making challenging high-quality instructional material accessible to all students.
At the end of his first year at HISD, Council of Great City Schools honored Superintendent House as a Green-Garner Award finalist for outstanding contributions to urban education. The Houston Area Urban League also recognized his contributions to the city’s children with a Black Excellence in Education award.
Previously, Superintendent House served as superintendent of the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System in Tennessee for four years and in 2021 was named TN Mid-Cumberland Superintendent of the Year. Under his leadership, CMCSS produced steady academic gains across subject areas; expanded educational options for families; implemented an innovative Teacher Residency Program to prepare new teachers; ensured every student in kindergarten through 12th grade has technology to learn; and implemented a Foundational Literacy Skills Plan to support young children who are learning to read.
Superintendent House is a Tulsa, OK native who started his career as a physical education teacher and has more than 25 years of experience in education and the nonprofit sector. He previously served as chief operating officer of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina and as deputy superintendent of Tulsa Public Schools in Oklahoma.
Prior to joining the executive cabinet in Tulsa, he founded and led a college preparatory middle school in one of the city’s most economically underserved neighborhoods. Over four years, Superintendent House’s school became one of the highest-performing and most sought-after schools in the community. Before founding his school, Superintendent House was one of the nation’s youngest public-school administrators as he served as assistant principal for one year and principal for four years at Marian Anderson Elementary School in Tulsa at the age of 26.
During Superintendent House’s tenure, Anderson Elementary went from being designated one of the lowest performing schools in the state of Oklahoma to being one of the highest performing Title I schools in the state of Oklahoma.
In 2003, Superintendent House was voted Tulsa Public Schools’ Principal of the Year. He was the first African American educator to earn this honor. He also was named the Outstanding Administrator of the Year by the Tulsa Area Alliance of Black School Educators.
Superintendent House earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Montevallo, Alabama and his Master of Administration in School Administration from Northeastern State University, Oklahoma. He also graduated from the Fisher School Leadership Program at the Hass School of Business, University of California at Berkeley.
Superintendent House has served on several boards, including Tulsa Educare Board, Oklahoma Center for Community & Justice Board, Oklahoma Education Oversight Board, Southwestern Educational Development Laboratory Board, Harvey B. Gantt Museum Board, Charlotte Children’s Theater Board, Tennessee Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission, Complete Tennessee Steering Committee, and the Clarksville Chamber of Commerce.
