I just graduated from MIllennium and I use to say I hated it, but they had so much going for them. Besides having a handful of amazing Teachers, Ms.Garrido, Mr.WIllis and Mrs.Leppeck all the other teachers stribe for sucess. Even with the rude office staff and seemingly pointless busy work, if the student trys they can achieve.
Malachy is an excellent school, if one has the money for it and wants a faith based school. Many people can't or don't want to do that. Most public middle schools will have big classes, not just Millenium. However, we feel MIllenium's hours are horrible (9:30AM-4;30PM). Add in to/from time, dinner, extra activites and such, we can't imagine what time these kids go to bed since they also have to get all their homework done. Even if they do homework in the morning, they'd have to get up earlier. We just think kids need a life outside of school, too.
We used to love this school until we saw the FCAT and big classes. They cared about FCAT bonuses and not education. Try Malachy in Tamarac. We moved our child there and he excelled tremendously. No FCATs! They have so much more time with each child and every class is very small. Lots more benefits at this school!
this school is safe and has a great way of classes they are all organized by team and groups
This is the best school in West Broward. My child got an excellent education by caring teachers. Mrs. Barnes is truly a dedicated educator. I am looking forward to another great year at Millennium.
My daughter is now quiting from her second year in MMS and the school is the biggest disapointment i have ever been through the school food is disgusting not to mention my daughter found a piece of hair and a fly in her food on 3 different occasions in the same year. The teachers hand out grades just to raise the schools grades and the students are the ones who suffer. My daughter is now in Westpine middle and she is extremely happy, has straight a`s that she actually earned and the food quality is top notch. I wuld reccomend Westpine to any parent that cares about there childs education.
I highly recommend Millennium Middle School to any parent. Their academics and extra curricular activities they offer are far better than the schools around. My daughter was in a different school or 6th grade and this year her scores and grades improved. Teachers communicate via email and the front office staff is very helpful.
They repeatedly lose track of my child, making her unexcused when she is actually in school. Summer reading and writing assignments are due the first day of school and are part of your student's 1st quarter grade. Lunch line capacity is inadequate- some students must eat in less than 5 minutes. Lousy PE program. Students are 'tracked' by ability level in core classes. Advanced and gifted programs are good. Graduating students will be split between Piper and Taravella HS depending on where you live. Quarterly TIP projects can be a real nightmare. Uniforms are required. 4:30 dismissal time really interferes with recreational activities after school.
This school should bes known for for gangs, non parent involvement and teachers who truly could care less about a student. My daughter finally was transferred to another school because of the above. She received always an A in LA and now in her new school she received a C. I asked the teacher why and he stated she does know the basics. Two months later she is back to an A. This school hands out grades to up their mark as a school when the students suffer.
I just had my first experience with middle school and this was not the right one for us! The teachers can only control the kids so much so no matter how they try, the bulling is still there. The very bad lang. is extremly bad and the kids are totally out of control because they think that the kids are now old enough to be unattended. We are out of here.
This school could care less about the students and only cares about Fcat and testing. This is the wrost school ever!
I am so pleased with this school. The YMCA staff for before care is great. My child is ESE and the school has really made a difference. The teachers and aides are very caring. The school is very responsive to diversity and student needs.
Millennium Middle School is an excellent school in western Broward County. The students have many opportunities to learn through tutoring programs. My child attended Saturday and afterschool tutoring. The administration is excellent and very responsive to parent needs.
Great School. Extracurricular activities are plentiful. Curriculum is top-notch.
I highly recommend Millennium Middle School, extra-curricular activities are great The teachers and administration are the best. I would highly recommend this school to friends.
I would highly recommend Millennium Middle school to anyone in the western Broward Community. My child is moving on to high school and got an exceptional education with test scores that increased over the three years. There were so many extra-curricular activities that there was something to do everyday. The teachers and administration were very caring and concerned. The safety/security of my child was a priority as there is someone at the door to make you sign in. The only drawback would be that there are many students that don't have correct guidance at home. Therefore, my child did come home and tell me stories that I wish I did not hear. Parents need to remember that the school is there to educate and that parents need to control and take responsibilty for their students actions. Thanks to the many challenging school programs, my child is prepared for high school.
I am a very disappointed parent with an 8th grade student at MMS. He has been there for all 3 years and the programs in place for education are pointless. The CARE class is 30 minutes wasted in the morning, when they could be starting their first class that is instructional. The BEST folder is an empty grade, their is too much weight on the quarterly project and the STAR log is a joke. If the kids are going to read they will read. The office staff is very rude and nobody returns your call when you leave a message. I am very worried about High School after this very unorganized middle school experience. They need to focus on the basics and not only the FCAT. The teachers are out way too much and the kids are put into another class or they have a sub.
MMS is not a good school at all. The Administration leaves alot to be desired and the kids are not all given an equal chance to succeed. Unfortunately, my child and his friends have been 'targeted' by the administration as being 'difficult' and as a result, their parents and I have no respect for the three ring circus that Millennium is. Some of us, as single parents, have to work for a living and do not have time to volunteer at the school therefore, this should not be an issue as to whether the school is great or not. Others are 'privileged' enough to be stay at home parents and have all the time in the world when the rest of us are in the real world! I would definitely advise incoming parents and students to find an alternate school.
I am a very satisfied parent of a graduating 8th grade student. My child spent three years at Millennium Middle and got a very challenging education. The administration is outstanding. They listen to needs of the students and provide an exceptional role model for them. The clubs and afterschool activities are plentiful. The only drawback is that there is no parental involvement. Parents complain, yet are never there to assist the school. I think parents should have to donate 10 hours a year to make this a better school. I would highly recommend this school to friends.
millennium middle school is such a great school i have been there since 6th grade and now i am heading to 8th all the tachers are wonderful they explain things to all the kids so we could perfectly understand them i mostly don't need help with my homework since they also seperate the kids into groups from lowest,average,and advance it is wonderful because they get thought at their level and not all the same well i will tell anyone to go to this school it just great
