Millikan is a huge mess. Yes, there is bullying, however, school does nothing about it. Leadership prefer to ignore the problems and simply do not address concerns. Huge load of homework, poor kids have no life! Most of the teachers are not approachable, they don't do emails, don't have voicemail, just fill out the office request and wait entire year until they respond, if at all. Same with administration. Deeply disappointed with "performing arts" academy instrumental; they simply do not perform. Bottom line - find another place.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
I agree here because when I've asked my son if he's seen or been the recipient of any bullying, he said that he wasn't and hasn't seen anything that he would consider bullying.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Nope. My son is gifted. He is in honors classes. In there, they teach through loading the kids up with as much work as they can and don't offer students time or safe space to ask questions. I can see the bulb dimming. It's sad.

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
Not sure what leadership this site is referring to, but the office staff are extremely annoyed when I come in to ask questions. Give quick answers and do their best to get me out of their hair.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
I have seen nothing to indicate this. The only character trait they seem to be developing is conformity and breaking the spirit through volume of work. There is nothing in place to help them develop socially that I am aware of.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
With the exception of 1 teacher, I have found that the teaching staff are "over it", and prefer not to be bothered. Instead of engaging the students and grabbing their interest, they keep order through threat of punishment.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Quantity over quality. Creates imbalance in child's social and physical development in the we don't have much time for anything other than homework. Most of the homework is redundant and does not engage the childs creative thinking, problem solving abilities. It's just a ton of work.



- a
Modern mentality school with motivated teachers and great leadership. Not an old school thought process with "institutionalized" staff just waiting for the bell to ring. I have two kids there in different academies and both are thrilled with the school. A happy place where kids are pushed hard and getting prepared for the real world in the 21st Century.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Character is emphasized through the use of the Medal of Honor school program during history classes and classes emphasize honesty and integrity with the use of an honor code requiring all work be attributed. Students can report bullying anonymously through boxes posted throughout the school encouraging students to do the right thing without fear of being considered tattletales.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers find ways to make assignments meaningful. Now that testing is over, we're even seeing poetry & novel reading in English, science homework often allows for options to choose assignments that resonate with students. Math students are taking high school level courses eagerly. This is the toughest age to teach, and many teachers find a way to connect with students making learning deeper.
