I absolutely LOVE Millennia Elementary School. My son started Kindergarten in August 2013. His teacher, Mrs. Lyon, has done such a remarkable job with him. He struggled in reading & mathematics and she did not hesitate to give her best to him. There are great school activities and there's a great sense of community at the school.

My daughter was supposed to start pre-k today but the bus never showed up after I gave them the address 3 different times. The teacher seems nice and the classroom is bright and cheerful. Don't expect to get anywhere when you call them on the phone, you never get a live person and no one returns your messages.

Millennia ELementary is a school I feel is safe and secure for parents and the students. The teachres really care about the school and the administration is visible and my child loves the principal. As a parent I feel informed and secure about what is happening in my child's school. I love the motto of 'Together We Can Make A Difference!'

My son started there for Pre-K and he is now in K..Luckily he got the same teacher he had in Pre-K now in K.. she is awesome. Go Ms. Wahl!!!! She keeps him challenge.. she let us know when there is a problem and she responds to our concerns or messages. The staff however is not very reliable.. Most of the time they do not know the answers to questions we ask.. basic questions. The principal does call often when there is an event or issue at the school and we get regular updates.. overal I am very satisfied with the work he is doing.. But much credit to his teacher..

This is the 2nd year my son attends Millenia and I think it's great..they have a great Extended day program that allows me to be flexible at work. His teachers have all showed a great deal of interest in his education and the principal has always been available when I needed her. Way to go Millenia!

I have repeatedly called and visited this school trying to set up a meeting to discuss my grandson's needs, only to be told someone would get back with me right away. So far, right away has never come. I have found this school to be very parent unfriendly and communication to be next to nil. His teacher seems to be nice and she has responded to my emails, but none of the other staff can be bothered. Parents apparently are not able to have lunch with their children without a background check and once when I asked to accompany my grandson to his classroom to check with the teacher about something, I was told that was not possible. This is so opposite of the other schools that he and my other family members have attended, where I felt welcome and part of the learning process.

Interesting that the school is located right off of Vineland Rd ... A four-lane, divided collector roadway. A 20 MPH school speed zone does exist on Vineland Road for the school. However, the school zone is regulated by signs only WITHOUT the emphasis of flashing yellow lights. It would be a significant safety improvement if the yellow flashing lights were installed on the existing signs.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science and writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
