Millikan is an outstanding high school. My daughter completed her freshman year in the QUEST program and loved it! Faculty is accessible and there are many opportunities for parental involvement. I strongly recommend MHS!
I was very concerned about sending my son to such a large high school but Millikan has been amazing. Millikan and all of LB high schools deal with the huge student body with small learning communities which allow a student to be part of a smaller group. Students take classes within these groups and teachers are assigned to teach within these groups. My son is in QUEST - the high achieving/GATE program and he has just blossomed. I feel that his teachers know him and that his councilor knows him. This is true even with a student body of over 4000. I also must commend the SPED department. He is both gifted and disabled and they have been extremely supportive. I highly reccomend Millikan for any child who needs a strong academic program as well as a child who needs support. Great job Millikan. Can't wait to send son number 2 in a few years.
The school is great BUT WAIT... Charging my child $2 everyday or every time they forget their student ID? NO NO NO NO This is a public school and my child does not have to pay even a dime for any school materials a law that was established back in 1879. BUT WAIT if my child forgets their book in one of their classes it is known that my child has to pay the teacher who is paid a salary $0.25 to rent a book in order to join that class, Well I am here to stop all these charges by a free public school in a free public school system. A child in a California Public School charged any such fees violates the California Constitution, which has provided for "free school" since 1879. Any school requiring students and families to pay for instructional materials is in violation of the free school guarantee! CHANGE YOUR POLICY TODAY OR THE ACLU WILL BE SEEING YOU IN LITIGATION.
Strong academic programs, particularly QUEST. Great administrative leadership and excellent faculty. Safe and secure school with high expectations of its students.
The Compass program is great! Very creative teachers encourage my ninth and tenth grade students to be thoughtful and innovative in finding ways to serve the community.
Teachers and staff are very helpfull. My PE Teacher Mr. Petkovic is the best. You never rest in his class. Just work, work, work, but results are there. Thanx for all the help!
We joined Millikan last year and the staff had been very welcoming and kind. After a great tragedy in my family this year, every one there treated my sons with the honor they deserved at that time. The staff has been working with my teens to get them headed in the right education path..which is college! Thanks everyone for all you have done and all you will do.
I holenstly think as a student that is attending Millikan as we speak, well its summer so you know what I mean, that everyone that has written a negative comment doesnt know what they are talking about. They dont come here everyday and go to class with us. As far as the teachers not caring that is a load of crap, I was failing english and my teacher Mr. Benson, took time out of his scchedule before and after school to help me. I will agree that the principal is a total duch but just because of one persons stupidity y ou cant judge a hole school, as fat as the halls being too crowded what do you want it is high school, you arent going to find a high school with 5 kids in the hall ways. I kdont know how some parents expect the staff to make friends for
Well in my opinion I think that they have one of the best academic programs. The program that my daughter is in is great because the teacher actually take time with the students and engage in their students work. All their extracurricular activities are available. My daughter is very involved in her school sh is in the marching band, orchestra, cross country, and also the track team. She is also the president of two clubs on her campus. So I do think that their exta-curricular activities are available its just a matter on wether or not a student wants to take part. I think that the parents do take an active roll in the school.
Millikan was a wonderful school to attend! It always felt like the teachers truly cared. The friendships made there will last forever.
Millikan High School is a great school for your child. Millikan teachers' mail goa is the success of the student. Teachers at RAMHI get to know your student and their individual needs. Millikan students graduate with a sense of pride and accomplishment ready to enter college. Millikan offers SLC's (Smaller Learning communities) so students can learn in a small school evnironment while having all of the benifits of a large school. Also, Millikan encourages parent involvement at home and on campus. They offer a website on which parents can read the daily bulliten and school newspaper, check grades, email teachers directly and get prompt responses, and learn more about the school. Also,Millikan offers many classes of the arts; instrumental, vocal, theater, photography, drawing and more. Millikan sports are open to every student. Millikan students can join student council, the principal advisory committe, or clubs to get involved. Visit: http://www.lbusd.k12.ca.us/millikan/index.htm
I have a grandson who went to Christian school for 8 years and now he is in the 9th grade he has decided to do his work at home with no one to follow up on if he gets his work done or not. How can this happen. Can we let our 14 year olds make that kind of decision? Is the school so busy that no one is following up on his work. He is missing out on so many things because he isn't at school associating with kids his own age. He decided to do this before he started school this year and no one stopped him. What can we do so children like him are not forgotten.
Millikan is a great school with committed teachers and a wonderful staff
Lack of interest from staff in helping a good kid with good grades adapt and fit into a new school. Heard mostly what she can't do, not what she can.
This school is up to date technology-wise thanks to extended funding from the E-rate programs.
Millikan is the high school my two eldest daughters attended and graduated from in 2002 and 2004. Millikan is located in a nice neighborhood and it is attended by a racially diverse population. I believe the diversity was an advantage for my daughters. They each had friends from other races and thus became more informed about other cultures and also more compassionate. Millikan is a school that ends up taking on students from other schools that didn't maintain a 2.0 average. Millikan is quite crowded, my daughters both complained about how difficult it was simply trying to walk to class. My eldest daughter was in the GATE program at Millikan, called Quest. She seemed to really enjoy the Quest teachers. I sometimes worried that she was receiving more work, and maybe she would have benefited from more enrichment. The drama and music departments are excellent.
This school has average staff, with average programs. Students appear to be motiviated, but most ood students would rather attend POly High School downtown.
my son is currently a junior at Millikan High, he has had nothing but success. He is in the top 10%in the class rank. And boy is he ready for college!
This school has a lot to offer to it's students with many smaller learning communities that are aimed to able students learn about specicfic areas within a smaller group, which promotes academic awareness and success within each community. The counselors and all staff really care about there students. Most of the teachers are great and lend a hand to help their students, but I do believe that there is an aspect of a successful learning experience missing from this campus, and that's parent involvement. But I truely believe that this school has alowed me to grow.
I am not at all impressed with this school and its preparation for students entering college. My son recently graduated from this school and the results of his testing skills for college are below average.
