Worst teacher in the school miss jack! My daughter has such bad memories of grade 1! All she did was scream at children and the only day she use to be good with class was on Friday ! I was not sure if I should have my daughter continue with the school so I pulled her out and put her in a private school where she is much happier! Good riddance to miss JACK!

I have two kids at Millard, and a 7th grader that graduated 6th grade at Millard. I am for the most part pleased with the school. The teachers take education very seriously, the parents that I've met are very friendly and involved, and for the most part my kids have been happy there and they are all doing well academically. My one huge complaint about this school is the principal. She is the rudest most un-sympathetic person I have ever met. In the last 3 years, there have been two incidents when I had to talk to her, and both times she was very impatient and obviously annoyed by the fact that I was using up her time. She should be fired, and replaced with someone 100% better. A woman with an attitude like that should not be working with the public. I have filed a district complaint about her, and will not hesitate to do so again.

I have a 16yr old daughter that attended Millard since 1st grade, my 10 yr old son has been attending since kindergarten. They love the school. My daughter still goes back and volunteers for activities. Millard and Millard PTA are amazing. They put together many activities throughout the year that bring the community together. The teachers are all great, honest and suportive. I have 2 more kids that will be attending in the distant future. I am happy that we have a great public school in our area.

My daughter has attended kindergarten and 1st grade at Millard. Her teachers have been great, especially Mr. Poe. They have allowed her to progress at her own speed, even though she is well ahead of most of the class and it means more work for them. I have seen a lot of parents actively helping in the classrooms too. Unfortunately, the staff in the front office is rude and unhelpful, so I have to take a star off for that.

Millard is a great school but during pick-up time I see some parents acting weirdly. I ve encountered a parent who shouted at a poor little child s face and threatens him to tell his teacher when her kids came in conflict with the kid while at play. Her kids were playing with 2 of the 3 school property toy stuff and many kids wanted to take turn. The 3rd toy was being shared by many boys, but she was running with the kids in the middle of the playground just to make sure that no other kids can disturb her kids with the school's toys. She volunteers in her kid s class but neither socialize nor joins school s family events and activities. Millard have several fun family activities where families can interact and learn from each other but unfortunately her likes don t participate. There is also one guy who is like a stalker and also volunteers in his kid's class. I've never seen like these in my child's previous schools.

Millard School is ok. My child has been picked on at millard. The school has a lot of vandalism. Some staff aren't that nice towards me and my child. Teachers at millard are the best they understand my child and help him. Unfortunately, my child hates Millard so we moved out of Fremont.

The program at Millard surely meets all California requirements, however the teachers and principal, when tasked with a major issue to solve, have failed 2 years in a row. The neighborhood is nice and the parents are more involved than usual but additional involvement is required from parents because the teachers don't communicate with the principal well and don't follow thru on committments to work out issues with parents.

So far I've been happy with the quality of education my children are getting. Every teacher my children have had were excellent. It seems that almost all of the teachers have good judgement in the discipline department. Parent involvement is better than some other schools in the FUSD. The principal is not always easy to reach but somehow is able to address whatever your issues are although not always personally. Overall this is a good school with high quality education and a staff that cares.

I will say that Millard is overall a great school. But along with that I will say this... take careful consideration if you have a child with learning disabilites. Unfortunatly I have foud that some of the teahers have little or no tollerance. Over all I love Millard just be careful if your child is outside of the 'NORM'.

I am very satisfied with Millard in terms of quality of education, parent and teacher involvement and extra curricular and social activities. This is our first time to experience public school teaching because we just moved here from Asia. My child has always been enrolled in private exclusive schools over there and there's really not much of a difference with the quality and standards especially the Values formation that is instilled upon the students. The only downside of the school so far is the lack of security. They do have a policy on visitor's and volunteer work people but I have seen adults roaming the campus a couple of times who are not part of the school staff and faculty without proper identification stickers, however, I am guessing that perhaps the presence of many parents in the vicinity will ward off unwanted personalities. It is in a good neighborhood anyway.

I have to say, many teachers at Millard remind me of the teachers I had in school. They care about the kids and preparing them for the future. The PTA provides many family oriented social events. I know my kids hate to miss any of these. We have been at Millard for 5 years now, and have never had a bad teacher yet. The surrounding neighborhood is quite pleasant. I can only hope that the schools my children move on to over the coming years are half as wonderful as Millard has been.

I find Millard to be a wonderful school! The teachers are educated and caring. They go the extra mile to help any child who is struggling. I feel I am a good judge of the difference in schools as my children have went to two other Elementary schools and neither one even came close to Millard. My children learned more in the fist few months of first grade than they had learned to date at the other schools they attended. I am very happy with the Music, Arts and Sports activities.... Although not all parents are involved as much as they could be there is triple the involvement of the other schools we were at. All & All Millard is one of the best!

The school is surrounded in a good clean cut neighborhood. The kids are your average kids. The teachers now, are just okay, they're not memorable. I liked the previous teachers, the ones that had transferred to a new school or retired. This is your classic, Average American school. Well behaved, well liked kids, one or two or three class clowns in the whole school, playing small minor pranks and jokes.. Of course. I consider the teachers to be too uptight. Unfortunately, this school used to be at least 2x better than it is now.
