I would also like to add that the Middle school could definitely use a place for the students to store their books and other supplies. The hallways have enough room for the students to have lockers. These kids have to carry around ALL of their books each and every day, even if they do not need them. They do not have desks to keep them in (at least in my sons classes) and if they leave them on top of their desk, they could easily get lost or stolen especially during the switched classes. His back pack probably weighs about 50 pounds and he brings it home and back to school EVERY DAY....that is rediculous. These kids are sure to have back problems.

I am constantly amazed at what the students learn at Millbrook Junior High! I applaud the teachers and administration for their hard work and dedication to the students. Discipline problems are nothing compared to surrounding counties. Keep up the good work! This military family is pleased.

The junior high side of Millbrook middle-junior lacks greatly in several areas. Textbooks are out of date and very worn. The hallways are very narrow. There is a lack of supplies and cleanliness in the bathrooms. Ask any student who has not spent all their life in Elmore County what they think about this school. There is no music, art, or computer lab. Some classes are two hours long. As bad as this school is it is one of the better schools in the tri-county area which doesn't say much for the state of Alabama. There seems to be dissention among the communities within the county system. This military family is not satisfied with the education offered at Millbrook.

The principals are tough and have zero tolerance for laziness. The teachers inspire and motivate with high expectations and creative learning styles.I too have seen many school systems around the state, and MMS ranks among the highest!

I think Millbrook Middle is a great school. We are in the military and have been all over the place. Our son has been at Millbrook for 2 years and is starting 6th grade this year. Anyone who complains about this school has no idea whats out there. They provide a great education to any child who wants to receive one. Millbrook Middle is an awesome school. Mr. Tom Brock is an outstanding principal. Keep up the good work Millbrook!

There are just a handful of teachers that are very excellent teachers but there are more that all they care about is 'writing up' your child. The asst. principle leaves much to be desired. He needs to retire. If I could get out of Millbrook it couldn't be sooner than I want.
