If you bring up your concerns for your child, not sure if admin or the teachers truly look into the concerns. You have to keep reminding them that there are issues that need to be resolved or your child will not succeed or feel comfortable. Some teachers need to open their eyes better to see what some kids are trying to get away with that could get them suspended or hurt a peer.
Two of my children attended East Millbrook and my experience was mixed. Both of my sons went there for the arts and came away with greater interests and skills. My first son attended 4 years ago and had a mix of art classes that most middle schools don't offer. My second son attended last year and took drawing and advanced art. He learned to draw, paint murals, build theater sets, and was offered a chance at going to Europe. I have mixed feelings about the school because of the behavior of some of the students on campus. I read recently that the school is creating an Arts Academy, maybe this will breathe life into a school that has great opportunities that are overshadowed student behavior.
My daughter goes to this school and it has been a great experience. The staff and teachers really care and the range of programs that is offered to students expands their minds to other possiblities of careers. We love East millbrook!!
I have been at East Millbrook for three years now and I loved my experience overall! If you are thinking about enrolling here, enroll! The arts program is great and so is the IB program. Those are just a few good highlights that this school provides and you just won't get these programs from other schools.
This school is HORRIBLE! I have two children that have attended this school and our experiences were absolutely horrible. As a parent you want the best for your child, THIS school IS NOT it. Some teachers have a "I don't have time to deal with this" or "It's not my responsibility" type attitude, the admins are absolutely two-faced, half do not know what certain protocols are suppose to be in place when asked by a parent and say whatever to appease you. ALL children learn differently as well as adults and it's a set standard of teaching no adjustments are made for certain children. Stereotypes are at an all time high, to get situations handle are like pulling teeth. Administration give excuses, and will say anything to save their jobs. My children had been bullied almost everyday and when they told the teacher about it, the bullying, name calling, and constant peer pressure worsened when the teachers weren't around. I am bewildered at how Admin told me that my children needed to come and tell them for they have no tolerance for bullying, but the school has at least 1-2 fights at the school A DAY!!! What is a child to do if they do admin or teachers and it makes it worse????
