My kids have had experience in several different school settings and I currently have 3 kids attending Mill Creek Elementary. We have had a wonderful experience here. The staff and teachers have always been very helpful and welcoming. The teachers are hard-working and manage to help my kids with their shortcomings and challenge them when necessary. The discipline program focuses on helping the kids to make good choices regarding their behavior and extra effort is recognized. The school environment is positive. Extra-curricular activities in 4th and/or 5th grade include Art Club, Book Club, Safety Patrol, 4H, and Choir. Communication between teacher and parent is good in my experience. Any concerns I have had have been sufficiently addressed by either the teachers or staff. My kids really enjoy going to school (usually!). In my opinion, you won't find a better public school in Bulloch County.

I had 3 children at this school,,, Watch out if you are not christian you are going to have issues... At first it was fine, the secretary in the front, which told me i dont do the holidays either made me feel good, then after while it all went down hill... very few still treated us with respect... was told from them on different things as they changed there minds of what they could do to honor our religious beliefs... jewish thats what we are... i stated to them,, it does not matter what culture the child is you are to honor what they do !!! and they failed all 3 of my kids.. yeah

I was totally shocked to see this school was only given a 5 out of 10. All 3 of our children have attended this school. We still have 2 there. The test scores this site shows goes totally against other reports, so I'm a little cautious about that. This has been an excellant school that has won many awards. Students with good parents have performed very well at this school, but so have students with little help at home. They just won an award last year for achieving high results with underprivileged students. This was 1 of 5 schools in the nation to receive this award. The Principal has always been excellant, however he was moved to one of the high schools. One of the VP's became the 1st female Athletic Coordinator at one of the high schools. The whole staff is always very friendly and helpful. We love it!

This is an amazing school. I have never seen a school full of teachers who care as much about the students as I have seen at Mill Creek. They create an atmosphere that gets the students excited about learning. The school is very clean and technology is abundant.

Great hard working teachers who are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. My children had a wonderful experience at the school.

School has a very poor principal! He shows poor organization and has now limited the hours per week that parents may volunteer at the school. How many schools kick the parents out? Such a decline in AR since Cheryl Jones left. Shame on everyone in the BOE for letting such a poor leader slowly destroy a wonderful school!

Award recognition every 9 weeks is great positive reinforcers. Students are challenged as appropriate to their level, some tough love but works. Teachers very involved in getting kids in safely to school & during dismissals.

Parent involvement is very high in this school. It is very much encouraged. Music, art, and P.E. are only given twice a week. Academic programs are commendable, and behavior problems are minimal.
