School board members voted 6-1 to support the implementation of the IB program at MacMillan School at the MPS Board Meeting on Tuesday,February 28th 2014. Thanks so much for showing your support!! For the past several months, the MacMillan staff has been researching and exploring the possibility of applying to become a Primary Years International Baccalaureate Program. The most significant and distinctive feature of the IB Primary Years Program is the six transdiciplinary themes. These themes are about issues that have meaning for, and are important to, all of us. The program offers a balance between learning about or through the subject areas, and learning beyond them. The six themes of global significance create a transdiciplinary framework that allows students to "step up" beyond the confines of learning within subject areas. * Who we are * Where we are in place and time * How we express ourselves * How the world works * How we organize ourselves * Sharing the planet Each theme is addressed each year by all students. These themes provide the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum.

I recently returned to the area, after being away for over a decade. I'm returning with 2 brilliant boys! I was filled with nerves after hearing, less than glowing remarks of the public school system. My nerves were soon calmed upon hearing of MacMillan. I was so excited when my youngest was able to attend. I had heard about and now have witnessed for myself the pure joy, enthusiasm, and encouragement, as soon as you enter the campus, pouring from the principal, teachers, staff, and parents! It's the BEST!

This school has a lot of love and support not only from the staff & teachers; but the parents as well. The exerience of multi-cultures learning various cultures is wonderful!!!

4 out of my 5 children have gone to MacMillan. I love the way the staff teaches about the different countries and cultures from around the world. They have a lot of projects that help the students apply what they are learning.

It feels like one big happy family. This is a magnet school without all the stress and the kids are happy and eager to learn.

Excellent school. I almost didn t enroll my daughter because the neighborhood is terrible. I am so glad I did enroll her. She is very safe (cameras are all around the school, and only authorized people are allowed in). Also, a bad house was demolished, and rezoning is happening, so progress is being made to improve the neighborhood The new principal, Mr. D , is excellent. He is a strong leader who is professional and approachable. The students will have uniforms next year, 2008-2009. I am pleased about that. Also, the teachers are top rate, the school scores are impressive, and the international focus is great. My daughter had projects about Canada, India, and Australia. Each grade learns and presents on different countries. The computer lab is up to date, the new librarian is making great changes, and the Spanish classes are a bonus. I can t say enough about this school.

My daughter has been attending MacMillan for 3 years now and loves it. We love the diversity of the students and the fact that our child can learn about other cultures. All of the teachers know all of the students. It is a very close knit school. As with all schools, some of the teachers could be a little nicer to the students. The parent involvement is also great. We love MacMillan!

I think the school should focus on buying soap for the restrooms before they worry about buying anything else. With all the germs running arouns that school, no wonder my daughter is always sick!

Macmillan is an exceptional place. It blends many cultures and gives my daughter a much broader view of our world than I was taught. The school offers opportunities for public speaking and technological experience with the in-school television and radio programs. My child's teacher has gone the extra mile to keep my child challenged and excited. The small school provides a closeness throughout the entire school population, teachers and students across grade levels, that is not found in larger schools.
