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 am a 9th grade teacher at Millington High School and the students are awesome! They are respectful and overall, they try their hardest to achieve what they want most in life - success! I am honored to work at MHS!

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.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
