Millennium Middle school is below Average school in terms of its educational faculty. Students who live within One Mile distance from school must WALK, which in itself is a good thing , except that City of South Lyon and Lyon Township along with Oakland county road commission have no concerns about the safety of the students while walking to and from school. Sidewalks on the South Lyon side are never shoveled or cleaned during winter months. Even though there is a Caution School sign on both sides of the Pontiac trail road, there are no traffic Lights, or crossing light , or crossing Guard to ensure the safety of the students who must cross the very busy Pontiac trail road. South Lyon School district refuses to apply for Safe School routes federal grant that pays for installation and maintenance of the MISSING Sidewalks, Traffic and crossing lights and law enforcement. If you care about the education and safety of your students try Ann Arbor or Novi schools for higher quality and better standards of Care

Some teachers care while others hurry to get out the door the minute the bell rings. Very little technology in the school compared to other schools in the area. Don't expect your child to learn much about computers if they go here or any school in South Lyon.

I love this school!! The teachers are amazing and I am in A/P classes and I am being challenged in not only my A/P classes, but my regular classes too! I am an eighth grader and I have learned so much at this school. Ms. Corbin is the best! She taught me everything I would think any English student would need to know... This is the best school ever! Everyone is welcoming and will be there to help you, no matter what. There are also a lot of programs for kids who are struggling, and there is even a day dedicated to stop bullying, etc. called challenge day! It was one of the best days of my life. Millennium. Is. The. Best.

Millenium Midle school...It is the perfect place for teens to get a superior education. My daughter has improved a lot and by moving to South Lyon she has become more responsible with her academics. She was from a Catholic school and it just did not seem right for our child. - Michele Bachman

It's very political here. Your experience depends on the area of South Lyon you live in. This school is very selective in its treatment of students and their families. Basically, if you live in the right tax base, your child will have a great experience here.

Wow! that all I have to say aout this school. All the teachers are nice the sports are so awseome. Tis definetly the best school in Michigan with recieving almost all A's in it's preformence. It is an awesome school district where the teachers care. This is definetly the school district you are looking for. It is million times better than livonia. The teachers in Livonia were mostly bad. South Lyon Disrict is definetly a five star!

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.

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.
