My daughter goes to fiirst grade here. All the teachers are great here especially Miss Nguyen. She is very hardworking and loves to teach. The principal Mrs Welch is also very good. The API score is also improving every year. I love this school.
The school is improving every year.Teachers are great and motivating. My both kids are going there.
I have two boys both attended Millbrook school my elder one has already graduated from this school and younger one is attending fifth grade they both love this school and so I do. Staff is great, teachers are amazing, Principal (miss Welch) is the most awesome lady I ever met. She is always there to help children and parents. Overall it is an awesome school. I am a proud parent of two Millbrook students.
My son is in sixth grade and other son is in third grade. They help my sons alot in this school. Its excellent that the teacher are so concern about what happens to the student. They help my son so much that its help me
my son is in the 5th grade and loves milbrook. although he did prefer dr. rucker's attention & sweetness. mrs. welch did impress me when we had a problem with bullying. i talked to mrs. welch and his teacher and it is now taken care of. they did not tolerate it and now he's having no problems. he even got the monthly courage reward for speaking up- that helped him also. although, some of the front office staff is not so courteous & one lady KEPT giving me the wrong information about enrolling my other son. i was quite upset but she didn't seem to care to attempt to get the correct or at least helpful information. So, I also avoid the front office as much as possible.
My daughter enjoys going to school everyday...she loves her teacher..the school is kept very clean ..the students here all so respectful kind to one another. The principal is great! so nice and welcoming to all the parents and children..the only down side is the administrative office staff ..not very friendly..try to avoid it as much as possible..other than that..this is a GREAT SCHOOL
My sons are in kindergarten and first grade, enjoying a challenging atmosphere and strong parent involvement. The principal is great, really involved and familiar with the children individually.
teachers really care about the kids, we do really well with PTA events, the school is kept clean no fights or bullying are toteralted
My daughter went to Millbrook until her 3rd grade and then we had to move. Millbrook teachers are generally exceptional when it came to teaching. However, some of them and especially in the administrative office and the custodian who conducts the parking space need to treat students and parents with more respect. They don't seem happy helping parents when parents need help. In other words, they were not the friendliest people to encounter so I avoided the office most of the time. Also, the principal did not seem to be as involved compare to other principal I've seen in other district..
We are happy with are new principal. Her name is Mrs. Welch. She has a lot of energy, and loves the kids. She wants more parent involvement at Millbrook. We are lucky to have her at Millbrook.
The 2007-2008 year has been wonderful. My son is in 4th grade this year and his teacher has been amazing. Also the new principal has hit the ground running. She knows many of the kids and seems to be fostering a wonderful environment for them and for the teachers. Way to go Millbrook!
My daugter got hurt 2 times in the same week at the play ground. Some kids are rougher then others and all they do is give them a time out. I think they need to improve on their safty on the playground.
This school year Dr. Rucker was transferred to another school and Mrs. Welch, is new the principal. Mrs. Welch appears to be a strict and assertive person and my kids are missing the kind and personal note Dr. Rucker gave to Millbrook. Safety, discipline and school & student success are definetly key issues at Millbrook.
Excellent team of teachers. Has a good mix of new and tenured staff. The school grounds redone. Brand new classrooms. Overall, a good environment for my daughter.
Millbrook is a great school. The PTA does alot for the students and the children are happy going to school here. Whenever I see Dr. Rucker, the principal, she always has a smile and time to say hello. The teachers care about their students and have a great leader in Dr. Rucker. This school gets an A+.
I think Millbrook is one of the best in San Jose in the academic dept. also they have the best principal any school could have, she is really down to earth and has a good and caring heart. They have a great faculty! They really came thru for my family in a time of need, my daughter loves this school.They have good programs to help the kids learn in a fun way.
Millbrook is a great school, the only thing I can think of is the decrease in field trips. My kids love this school.
I have been a Millbrook parent for 7 years now and I have been pleased with most of the teachers my children have had. Some of them, (exceptional teachers!) Millbrook right now does not offer any type of extracurricular sports, but it does offer a homework center. I have seen a lot of parent involvement. A lot of times the same parents over and over. PTA does a wonderful job of trying to keep the school alive with different activities and functions. The principal stays active in the school. Again, a lot of great teachers!
This is a great school. Well ahead of all other schools. I feel this is a College Prep school. Teachers are fantastic and the teacher to student ratio is good.
Overall school activity and teachers are great. Especially as an elementary school it is really good.
