I am a teacher at Mill Park and absolutely love working here. Our staff is full of highly educated people who love kids. I am proud of my school and proud of all the great learning that occurs everyday.
Mill Park is one of the many outstanding schools in the E. Portland School district of David Douglas. While surrounding school districts are declining, DD Schools continue to thrive. Mill park imparticular 2005-2006 School Year is doing a wonderful job with their education. Much of the credit should be given to their principal Ms. Kate Barker. The quality of academic programs is fantastic, all sports and music and art programs are still included. There is a high level of parent involvement and a wonderful mix of ethnic backgrounds. I HIGHLY recommend this school or others within this growing and thriving east Portland district!
One of the strengths of Mill Park has always been its music offerings. Along with a full-time general music teacher, choir, band and orchestra is offered for fifth and sixth graders to prepare them for strong programs in the middle and high schools.
