This is an aweful school. It is extremely unorganized, With the exception of one, the teachers probably belong more in the preschool level than in elementary education. In the 3 years my son has attended this school, 2 of his teachers have left mid year due to pregnancy. I don't blame those teachers for this, however they were not good teachers in the first place. They were then replaced with substitutes that I wouldn't even allow my son to go to for after school care. My son is a TAG student that somehow seems to be allowed to fail with no concern from the teachers or administrative staff. I worked in education myself for many years and I have never seen such disorganization, blatent religious teachings, and no actual concern for how well the students are doing. When we are forced to leave our kids in the care of others for 6 hours a day, you would expect that they are getting something out of it. They are not at this school. We are pulling our student out of Sarah Milner Elementary for his final year of elementary school because we feel the school is failing him. The only reason I have given this school 2 stars is because of the one 3rd grade teacher that is worthy of an award.

The teachers at Sarah Milner are enthusiastic, caring and compassionate. My children are excited to go to school every day and are showing great progress. The teachers work hard to challenge my children and encourage them to do their best. I am proud of my neighborhood school!

Overall Sarah Milner is a great school with caring loving teachers. I wasn't a big fan of one of the 5th grade teachers and didn't feel he did a very good job teaching math, but he wasn't the worst teacher either. A couple of years back when my oldest was going there we had an issue with a 4th grade teacher doing a very poor job of teaching math or keeping her word of sending home more information on their math program. Refused to work with us so that we could ensure that our son learned basic math, but was a rotten math teacher herself. We ended up having to teach him math at home. Since then however I have been very pleased with the school and teachers, but if any of my kids were to be assigned this 4th grade teacher I would have them taken out immediately.

The teachers try hard and the school is kept in decent condition. It would be a great school if the principal were to leave. He is unfriendly, (and sometimes downrigh rude!) doesn't listen to parent ideas, and seems to struggle in managing students without losing his temper. In a time of school budget cuts, and negative publicity about education, we can't afford principals like this to remain in charge.

We had two children with the misfortune of attending this school. Thankfully, both are attending other schools, now. The last teacher my child had here, obviously does not like kids. The principal has no clue how to handle bullies, but is running a very nice training ground for the thugs moving on to WCMS. I would suggest you get your child out of this school, if at all possible.

We are new third grade parents to the school this year, and we have a teacher who is also new to the school. We are so pleased with how welcome she made our daughter feel. We were worried about her transition, but it has been great. The focus on testing seems a little much, but I guess that is the directions schools are moving in. This is a good choice for quality education.

I have a son that has high functioning autism. I wouldn't recommend this school. The teachers and staff don't seem to encourage parent helping, and the special education team is extremely slow to respond to any concerns or changes to the IEP. They also don't communicate well with each other and it takes months to make an appointment. The school is very over populated and it really shows.

Overall we have had a lot of luck with this school. We have only encountered one teacher who while nice had some very low standards and was extremely undependable. However every other teacher has been super! It is obvious that the teachers and principal do this for the love of the kids.

I would just like to say that I attended this school as a child, and I know drive my child across town so he too can have such a wonderful elementary school experience! This school is all about getting the parents involved in their child's education...and I love that!! Not only do they have a great curriculum, but they thrive on making school a fun place to be...Keep up the great work!!
