We moved here in February 2002, my child was in 1st grade. We were not sure how Mill Creek would be so we had an application for our child to go to Jacksonville Country Day School. When a spot became available at JCDS, we went to Mill Creek and spoke to the principal and were absolutely positive that MCE would be the better choice for our child. We were not only impressed with the academic program, but with the Character Counts program also. They care about the children as a whole, not just academically. Our child will be entering 3rd grade and is doing great because of the wonderful, experienced teachers and staff there. MCE also allows every parent to be involved whether in the classroom or with the PTA. We are very confident that we made the right choice for the growth of our child.
We moved into the area in December, so our children came into the school midway through the year. I was a very active volunteer at our previous school, so I filled out the required background search form to become one at this school. I called three times and never heard back on whether I was approved or not. This meant that I couldn't go on field trips with my kindergartener, which I was not happy about. There is also a policy which restricts parents from visiting their child's class unless the teacher has 24 hour notice. I felt completely disconnected from my childrens' school experience. There is apparently no policy that mandates parent-teacher conferences unless requested, which is also something I am unhappy about. I hope that the next year will bring something a little better than this experience. My husband is already researching private schools.
