Millennium High School is definantly the best high school that any of my three children have been to. It is a place where their minds are constantly challenged, and education is the number one priority. The atmosphere is amazing, and school support is huge. It seems as if everyone is always envolved in every thing. I can't wait for my two eighth graders to attend next year.
I was a student at Millennium in 2005 and I wish I had gone to Agua Fria, in Avondale. For most programs I was in, such as student council, track, and drama, it took all four years to make it good, and even when I left, there were problems. The school is definately not strict on clothes.
We are only 6 1/2 weeks into the school year and my son loves Millennium HS! He is getting great feedback from the teachers in regards to Math and English. He's getting involved with the soccer program and loves his art class! I had the opportunity to meet the principal over the summer and Dr. Runyan really does want to see the kids succeed (as do the rest of the teachers!) I have nothing but great things to say about the entire teaching staff! My only issue is with the class sizes. However, that could be taken care of with portable classrooms or by opening up Verrado HS completely instead of just one grade at a time for the next 3 years. Or...add another high school to the area.
The school administration has difficulty picking their battles wisely when dealing with teenagers. Too much effort is put into disciplining foul language.
MHS is a good school. The Theatre department is doing a great job as well as the core academics. Parent involvement is lacking but under the direction of a new principal, MHS is starting to develop a 'community' feeling amongst students, faculty and citizens of Goodyear.
I found Millennium High to be well performing and has an excellent track program that my son has participated in.
'Both my children have gone to ANLC since they were 5 years old. ANLC is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you ANLC for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! '
My daughter had atrocious first year math teachers for both her freshman and sophomore years. Despite meeting with the chair of the math department, no changes took place. Their attitude was that the teacher must cover the entire text book by the end of the year. If students don't master the material, tough, the teacher goes on anyway! Needless to say, our daughter no longer attends this school.
This schools is a good school except the dress code is an outrage. They expect the shorts and skirts to be, hands down to their side and finger tip lenght. The female students have been complaining that stores do not sell shorts and skrits that long. The staff at millennium so then wear boy athletic shorts. What that sounds like to me, is that they want all of the students to dress like boys. Also, if a student would be sitting down, or bending over and you can see any little piece of skin the student gets into trouble.
Millennium High School is a school that cares about their students and appreciates their community! With Millennium's goal in preparing high school students for college and life, the academics, extra-curricular opportunities, learning experiences, faculty, administration and students are favorably exceptional in working together to create a positive atmosphere to learn, grow and create lifelong friends.
Millennium is a good school with good teachers and nice kids, nothing extraordinary. Soccer was best in state for 2003-04, the football program is great, there is a lot of pride at this school, an excellent theatre department, and the foreign language classes, French, German, or Spanish really teach students lasting language skills. The school is relatively quiet, and the students are, for the most part, very well behaved. The atmosphere is accepting, light, and fun. Work is expected to be completed by its due date, or points are not issued. Students attending Millennium High School have absolutely zero lee-way when it comes to not passing classes-if you don't pass even one class, you don't graduate. Students must also pass Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards, aka the AIMS test.
I have one child who is a sophmore here and had one other that graduated in 2003. For the most part I am really pleased with the faculty and administrative staff. I do feel, however, that the guidance counselors need to be more proactive and reach out to students.
Millennium has a great curriculum with plenty of challenging courses for advanced students, a well as standard courses for those who are average achievers. I have found the teachers to be helpful and welcoming of parental input. Discipline is maintained inside the classrooms which ads to the overall learning environment. The athletic program is outstanding and the relatively young school has already won many regional championships and a couple of state championships. My son is graduating this spring and I can truly say that he has enjoyed his four years at Millennium. He will be going on to technical school this fall, and Millennium has prepared him well for this next step toward a career.
The new assistant principal should be principal as he knows how to respect the kids. District needs to have a better meeting time for meetings to get parental involvement. All sports coaches and after school programs are great.
I think that consistency is the key and is the only thing that Millennium is lacking. Maybe with new leadership next year the consistency of discipline will improve. I think that Millennium is a wonderful school with great parental involvement and that the parents and teachers should be applauded because overall we have a great group of kids.
I'm a 2001 graduate of this high school. This school is a sparkling example of the overall low quality of Arizona's school systems. I transferred to this institution sophomore year and graduated with no more knowledge than I arrived with. The West Valley school system has a long way to go, and I regret choosing to stay at this inadequate establishment.
Coach Darla Ford is outstanding! She excels at every aspect of her profession! We will miss our wonderful principle.
This is our first year at Millennium. My biggest frustration has been getting some of the teachers to respond to voice/Emails that I send in regards to my child's progress or current grades. Several of them seem unwilling and have indicated that this is not part of their responsibilities. I feel that the teachers need to be more willing to assist the parents. Educating our children is a team effort between home and school. Push for the teacher's commitment back to the children and parents!
The teachers at this school seem to enjoy their jobs and care for the students. The other high school in this district leaves something to be desired.
