The teacher and staff are great, and the curriculum is something to die for...when it's done right. I have many classes which I immensely enjoy, gaining pleasure and knowledge from each lesson I learn, but there are classes that lack in this. Greatly, might I add. This isn't the teacher's fault, but mostly the students. Let me just say, many of them are plain rude, disrespectful, pompous, and they do nothing but laugh and mock the teacher whenever s/he tries to ask them to stop. Some teachers are able to bring the noise level down, but if a student is unfortunate enough to have an overly kind teacher, well, they're aren't going to learn very much from that class. Not only that, but bullying is quite evident here. There many students who cuss one another out, laugh at a kid who's a bit different, or basically talk about one another behind their back. I even hear kids repeatedly call some girls ugly behind their back, or do horrid crimes such as disparage another classmate who's nationality is different from theirs. Some even proclaim that they smoke weed, and expect to be highly praise for it. Overall, taking a shy kid to this school is like giving him a ticket to hell.

As I do understand, many people that will read a review from a child probably will not take it into consideration, but, I have the best first hand evidence than any parent or visitor could have. I am in 6th grade, enrolled in the pre-IB program, and wouldn't leave this school for anything. I am absolutely astounded by the quality of the school including fellow students and teachers. However, I would have to say that I do not recommend the standard program. Most of the school is focused on the pre-IB students. So if enrolled in the standard program, your child will learn, but not blossom as much as other schools. However, if your child is qualified for the pre-IB program than I more than welcome you to attend Milwee. Seeing my older brother transfer from Teaugue middle school to high school was a sad thing. He was qualified to attend the Pre-IB program at milwee, but decided upon Teague. He was not as prepared as would have been, but managed to somewhat succeed his first year as a freshmen. Milwee is a wonderful school that does dozens of classes and projects that could never be attended by any other school. Going to school is very fun, especially with the amazing teachers.

My child has attended for 2 years now, and we've had no issues at all. The PTA is lacking a bit but the IB program my child is in is wonderful.

Yes, there are fights. Yes there is a "ghetto" mentality, gangs, drugs and even sex in middle school. So why am I giving this school 4 stars? Because the Pre-IB program is pretty amazing. The teachers were among the best my child has ever had. The counselors care, too. The problems academically here are all common throughout the county -- not enough funding and too many "sunshine state" rules. The teachers, however, were amazing.

I attend Milwee. I know you may be thinking that I am a child and I don't know anything, but, unlike any parent, I have more first-hand experience. I believe the standard program is a terrible learning environment, so if your kids aren't the brightest, they won't blossom. As for the pre-ib program, it's amazing! They have the best teachers money could buy! These classes challenge you and make you grow. Most everyone is positive and willing to help you out. As for the person below me, I doubt they even know what they are talking about. We barely have any fights, and the ones that do happen are taken care of by the wonderful deans. I don't think the principal is qualified though. She comes from a rich school with many assets. Milwee is a poorer school and she throws around money like its nothing. Did she really have to paint the lamp posts?... I think this school needs work, but it's a pretty good experience.

I am not sure what the prior person experienced who stated they only cater to GIfted, I don't see that , My chiild Struggled with the Language arts , he was in Millwee for 6th grade and is now in Milwee for 7th grade. I stay in communication with the teachers and they correspond with me also we work as a team. My daughter was struggling in 5th grade and had a very hard time barely making C's, she is now attending Milwee in the 6th grade and she is flourishing, she is practicaly a straight A student. They are very strict against any violence wether in self defense or not they want the children to find non physical ways to resolve conflicts and while parents maynot agree, in todays society I dont think educators/parents can give a thumbs up to any violence kids dont use just fists anymore.

This is the worst school I have ever sent my children to. I will me taking them out as soon as possible. These teachers have no clue on how to disipline a child~ no leadership skills and if your child isnt 'perfect' forget about sending your kids here. They ONLY cater to the gifted kids.

This is a wonderful school, we come from Colombia and my son began on 6th grade without knowledge of the English language, and he received a excellent support by his teachers, now in 7th grade he is in advance level of ESOL program, and he is a PRE-IB student with a great grades. I think is the best place for my son study and preparer to his high school.

The gifted program has outstanding teachers who constantly exceed our expectations. We have had two of our children go through the program, and both have repeatedly stated that they were more than prepared for advanced placement classes at the high school. We are consistently amazed at the breadth and depth knowledge they have acquired in three years of middle school.

Acedemic programs are stellar, extracurricular activities are available to encourage independent growth, teachers are fantastic, and parent involvement could improve.

I am a student at Milwee Middle School. I have experienced a great deal of learning experiences, hands on activities, and have met some wonderful people. I am currently part of the gifted program and I cherish all my time spent there. The teachers which I have are so wonderful it's beyond words. I wouldn't transfer schools for anything. For me, Milwee has been perpetual bliss!

I just moved from NY and I am very disappointed in the quality of education at this school. It is a few weeks away from the end of the school year and he is still being taught things that he learned months ago in NY. I went to Milwee the other day to a cultural day event that was being held. I was shocked at the total state of chaos on the school grounds. Most of the teachers seemed as if they did not care and did not want to be there. The kids were basically 'hanging out.' My son hardly gets any homework and he has a substitute teacher almost every day! I don't think I will keep him in this school. He is very bright and I don't want him to lose that. Worse case scenario, I will send him back to NY to live with his dad.
