Millikin Elementary School 2

Posted November 04, 2014

This school has great test scores but its basically a school for the kids of software engineers who are here on work visas. The demographics in this school are one dimensional. Most of the kids go to cram schools after regular school so of course test scores are going to be high. Few of them live in the neighborhood, they clog up the streets by commuting from the other side of town. This is not a normal school, it is a school for the people who want to live in Cupertino but cant afford it. I don't understand why this is a public school, it does nothing for the local community. it should be funded by Google or Oracle.

Millikin Elementary is an overall fantastic school, with teachers and parents that care and support each other in a way that encourages the education and growth of each and every student in attendance. With an excellent staff; from the principal and teachers, all the way down to the janitors, Millikin is an example of how the model of one elementary school could turn California's education system around if only it's principals and examples would be followed by the rest of the state. One warning however, if (as a parent) you are not prepared or willing to be extremely involved in extracurricular school activities, both from a volunteer and homework perspective, than this school is NOT for you! If, on the other-hand you find that that sort of thing is your cup-of-tea, than I would encourage you to throw your hat in the proverbial lottery... your child will thank you for it and you would be hard-pressed to do better! Best of luck, Proud parent of two Millikin kids

This school is consistently rated as one of the top elementary schools in California, so if your child can win the school lottery, consider them very lucky. I know that by the time my daughter graduates Millikin, she will be well-prepared for any middle school because her school is laying a strong foundation in her most formulative years. I'll have to admit that I questioned whether she would be able to adjust to Kindergarten at Millikin, but so far, she seems to really like her teacher and made lots of friends already. In addition, she was academically prepared for Kindergarten, and socially well-adjusted, so I believe those things helped her adjust quickly. If you are not able to help your child with nightly homework (which I heard can get pretty intense during the higher grades) and academic progress in general AND volunteer some of your time to help the school, Millikin is probably not the right choice for you.

Not all the kids will fit to their system. Think about your kid before enroll. Score aren't everything about their life.

It is a top school that really focusses on overall development of the child.

I just read one of the reviews from a parent that said that Millikin has all the best kids so cannot be judged as an excellent school in comparison with other schools. Enrollment at Millikin is open to ALL students who live in the Santa Clara School District. Selection is random and students of all ability levels are accepted. Students are NOT turned away due to learning differences or disabilities. I have witnessed this first hand. The new principal, Dr. Rhodes-Stanford, has been an advocate for special needs students. Currently, special needs students (including autistic students) are taught with accommodations at Millikin. This is an excellent school in every way!
