Millington is a really bad school they are really broke they had to close down the Jr high school because that couldn't pay for it anymore so all 6-12 grade kids are in the same building. Pluse they don't have a choir class because they cant pay for it. I use to have a B average in school and the only class I can pass now is my wood shop class. I just started going there in February this year and I already hate the school. One day we were down on the cafeteria to talk about tech center and the principal was basically telling us to do tech center and not go to collage. I am highly disappointed in this school. My friends are getting in trouble for holding hands or hugging in the hall way at school because its PDA in school. They even say it over the speaker at school if they see u doing it. Most times they send u to rtc or the principles office. This is the worst school ever.

HORRIBLE SCHOOL!! This school gets worse by the year. Staff, teachers, bus drivers..the whole system is pathetic. There is no respect for students from the teachers or bus drivers. They have a ridiculous policy about bullying. A teacher can bully a student about the kid not passing a grade though and get away with it. Teens getting sent to the RTC room (7th graders too) & have to call home to narc on themselves about something unworthy. They treat their students as if they are kindergartners. Teachers are not here to help kids learn.The office staff is completely RUDE and ignorant if a parent needs to speak to their kid for an emergency. The staff will harass you to the max when you need to speak with your kid on the phone if "they" think it's not an emergency (they dont want to pull the student out of class yet they will pull them out of class to make them go call home&tattle on themselves in the drop of a dime). Also, dont expect to ask the office to give your kids an important msg,It wont reach your kids. UNACCEPTABLE!!! This school is broke, immature and VERYunprofessional. My kids' grades have dropped dramatically. Time to pull them out.

I have two kids that went to Millington High School. The Principle and guidance counselor from what I have experienced are bias toward athletes if your child is into sports they should be fine but, if they are into learning, reading books etc... then they really don't have a lot of time for you. I always get the feeling when I go to pick up my kids or call to talk to someone about anything they don't want to hear from the parents. There are a few I have talked to that are friendly but over all I get the impression they don't want to be there.

I have had one son graduate from Millington and I have took my other son out of Millington and sent him to a different school. I must say my youngest son is doing 100% better now. He went from D's and E's to A's and B's. One of my complaints is they have no money. My youngest son didn't even have books issued to him. All the students share the books so the books must be left at the schools. But the schools had enough money to put up a really nice new sign by the Jr High. Also, they go too far with the bullying policies. One student was expelled for a day for throwing a snowball at his best friend. REALLY? Millington considers that a form of bullying. Kids can't just be kids anymore at Millington Schools! Also, if your child plays sports or does other after school activities, don't expect your child to excel in the sport or anything else, unless you know the coach's personally and your really popular with everyone at the schools. It's not about how good you are or how smart you are, it's all about who you know. Speaking of after school activities, Millington don't have much to offer.

the principle is too strict... I think. Some of the people are mean, but the teachers are kinda cool. MHS band and football rules! but anyways, I'm a senior, and I'm never coming back here again.

I still attend Milington High School. The school isn't too bad compared to others. There are techers that get along great with the students, but there are some teachers that don't want anything to do with us, or we can stand. Another thing is that there is only one Algebra II teacher, and they need at least one more.

As with any school, the parents have to stay involved and push their child to excell. Unfortunately, football is definitely their No.1 priority. This school has been mismanaged over the years and struggles to regain financial control of their budget. There are some great teachers and some who need to learn to teach or better yet, retire! Furthermore, the school board needs to get a clue and stop being puppets only to be mislead into poor choices. If I had it to do over, I would have schooled my children elsewhere.

My child is one of MIllington's finest students and in my opinion this is one of the best schools in the county. I think you should send all other kids to Millington. They will get a GREAT education!!!!!!!!!!

I graduated one of the top in my class this past year. There are really caring teachers, and there are some that are not good at all. The academics are easy, and if you wish to challenge yourself, you may want to look around. They have an excellent art program, but there are not many clubs or sports... Football is good here, though. If you are looking for a safe school in a small town, this one is for you. If you are hoping to be involved in many fun extracurricular activities, STAY AWAY. They do not have a stable budget to keep their teachers, let alone make new programs.

As a former graduate of mhs, i can honestly say that the school system has seen better days. It is a shame to see the students and teachers stuggling - especially because my daughter is a student and i've got another one getting ready to enroll in the fall. I think there has been a steady incline in quality over the past several years - i only pray it continues. Parents get involved - your kids need you! 1-13-05

It is a old school and they don't have enough money to buy enough supplies for the students and they couldn't even make copies of worksheets for students without having to pay for the paper that they used. They should be closing this year but they are not even though they don't have that much money to stay running... They had to lay off a bunch of money just to stay running this previous school year.
