My school has great teachers and staff. Students are challenged to do their best and search for the truth.

Millbridge School is rated as a "5" to our family. The teachers are excellent and so very caring. They treat the kids fairly and most of the kids love the school. Our grandchild has been in kindergarten and first grade at Millbridge and our family is so very happy that he lives in this school district. I have substituted in other schools in the state and this school far surpasses the others in trying to teach and making sure the kids that need help get the needed help to pass their grade. Thanks Millbridge.

Millbridge is has a great number of very educated teachers, several with Master's Degrees,and a few with National Boards. The teachers take the time to care, teach and love the children. As another person stated, ONE person does NOT ruin it for the entire school. We ALL make mistakes. I know that all the staff do what they can to make sure our children learn and feel safe. I will have had three children go through Millbridge and it is one of the best schools I know in the county.

Taking all of my children out and sending to another school... what a horrible place!

They allowed a teacher to cut off about 8 inches of hair from a girl who had downs syndrome. If anything, children with special needs should be handled more delicately. Why any teacher would cut a childs hair without permission is beyond me. The schoolboard needs to fire teacher and retrain staff. There is no way this should ever happen in a classroom.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 29, 2012

Still no comment from the teacher of the school about cutting the hair of the little girl without the mother's consent. This is not the first time this school has negative media attention. A good school would respond eliminately in a case like this. It would at least say that they have suspended the teacher and are going to investigate the case. This school uh uh. Silence. Very bad, shady attitude. Imagine what else they cover that does not make it to the media.


Posted September 29, 2012

The way teachers act comes from the Principal. The principal should be fired for letting her teachers act like it's ok to cut the little girl's hair. My daughter has down syndrome and if anyone touched her hair I would have the police over there! I hope the mom sues the school district and the teacher!!!

Posted September 29, 2012

Come on people. This school had a score of 9 out of 10 before someone cut a girl's hair. ONE person does not ruin the school. There seem to be many happy parents there. I'm sure the assistant will be taken care of and dealt with swiftly. They always are. Move on and give fair ratings!


Posted September 28, 2012

This is a ridiculous school that hires uneducated people who cut childrens hair when they have absolutely no business in doing so and the dingbat that did it to that little girl needs to be fired ASAP!!! If that action is not taken it will prove just how much of a horrible school this really is and how they don't care about the children!


Posted August 13, 2012

This will be my daughters final year at this school. There is no such thing as perfection; however, they came close to it. While I've been shocked to learn what is being taught at the various grade levels, it's good to know my daughter is being challenged. The idea that these kids will get too much homework or that it is too hard... quite frankly... is evidence that maybe some parents have lowered the bar for their kids. I like the fact that my daughter is smarter at her age than I was at the same level. It gives me hope for our country to see that some schools still have the drive to push these kids to their fullest potential. Sure... some may not pass. So what? If your child doesn't get it yet, maybe that's your red flag as a parent to help them more. Or maybe they just aren't as smart as some of the other kids... that happens. It's ok, they'll be fine. Maybe seeing their friends move on will motivate them to do better. Lastly, the leadership is fantasic. Again, it's not perfect... but it's pretty close.

The amount of homework for a first grade child is ridiculous. My daughter transfered from another school and the transition from kindergarten to first grade has been tough. They haven't been very helpful with finding a program that coincides with school and after care. The teachers don't communicate clearly and often place adult responsibility on my child expecting adult results. I feel like I am retracing everything my daughter did and spending another three hours doing school work....she is 6 not a college student. They constantly misplace her work and she has to redo it. I have to make copies just so she doesn't have to be penalized for their mistakes.

My daughter has just started her 3rd year at Millbridge Elementary. I could not be more pleased with the quality of teachers and administrators. She has always loved going to school and has never had a bad experience. The faculty is top notch!

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are very eager to help students learn and have positive attitudes. The PTA program is in full gear with lots of fun and creative activities. There is so much of the childrens work displayed through out the school and they have certainly been busy. Millbridge Elementary is a great and creative learning environment for children

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
