My experience with Herbert Mills has been Wonderful. My son is in K this year and in the special education program. Mrs. Fryer has a really great special ed classroom with amazing teachers to help her as well. What is very obvious to me is how much they care about the students. I feel they are doing a FAB job! I have had a positive experience with everyone I have met, including Mrs. Bertke. I was very hesitant because of the reviews listed here, but I am so glad I found out for myself!

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE! My son is in kindergarten this year- and I have yet to be please with this school and we are 3 months into the year. I am pleased with his teacher, she is wonderful! As for the principal- that is another story. This woman should NOT be in charge of running a school! Next year my son will NOT go to this HORRIBLY ran school, I will do open enrollment at another! I can't express enough how poorly this school is ran. Makes me sick!!! ITS DISGUSTING!

I have had two older children attend this school and have had no problems until this year. My third child is in first grade at this school and has ADHD as well as other learning disabilities. I brought in a letter from his doctor with a diagnosis and recommendations for how the school should help him with his education. I was then informeed they are not required to follow the doctor reccomendations and when I asked for him to be tested the school didn't feel it was necessary. I asked them if I had the testing done at Nationwide Children's Hospital would they follow the IEP the hospital set up and they said if they didn't feel the he needed it they were not required to follow the recommendations. My husband and I are now looking into sending our first gradeer to a private school where they will give my son the help he needs that myself, his father, the rest of our family, his multiple doctors, his physical therapist and his occupational therapist say he needs.

This was my daughters first year of school, I have to say I was not pleased with her experince at all. I have had 3 children go thru mills and have found that there are alot of Teacher I would not recommend. The problem with Mills is the leadership. I feel that the teachers do and say whatever they please because they know that they will not be challanged. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

We have had a very bad experience this year. I am sad that more wasn't done to turn around this year for my son. He now hates school and its sad because he was excited coming into this year.

This is our 3rd year at Herbert Mills.I am so impressed with the staff and the way the school is ran.I have had many chances to get to know many on the staff and have yet to feel as though they are not interested in the students.They know me and my child by name and always greet us at the door.As another year starts we are looking forward to another fun exciting year at Herbert Mills.

I attended this school as a child and now my youngest is a 4th grader and has been there since Kingergarten. The teachers are great and they have special help for students who need it with reading or math. My daughter was in a reading group last year that really brought her reading level up and this year she's getting math tutoring before school starts. She loves Herbert Mills and they really care about your child's progress. I've had a good experience overall with all Reynoldsburg Schools, I've had children in every grade, including one graduate.

Herbert Mills Elementary is a wonderful school. There is a lot of parent/teacher involvement as well as extracurricular (PTO) activities. The teachers have a great concern about the academic development of each student. You can really tell that they take the time with each child.
