I am a former MCHS student and I have seen the good and bad times of the school. For parents who's child has yet to join the attendance of the school, this review will be directed more towards you. The good things of MCHS is that it is a very diverse school. There will not be an overwhelming amount of a particular group, race, etc. This school has students who have been successful after graduating from this school and those who would rather not care and fly-by without even trying. As I said, it is a great mix. This school, on that note, will help prepare your child for the future. He/she will see the good side of society and the bad side and it is important to have an education, plus learn a few life lessons on how people act in the real world as well.

Millington Central is an excellent school. Although the school recieves the end of the county budget, it truly does make the most of it as stated previously. I am proud to say my children attend it. The entire community has been able to rally behind the football team in past years. The new principal is wonderful. The school could see an improvement in parental involvement, however.

Millington Central high School is a wonderful school. The new principle has hit the ground running and all is good. The PTSA really cares.

Millington Central is the best school in the country if you want it to be. We have great teachers and coaches its just up to the students to succeed. You can send your pampered little ones to private school and keep them sheltered as long as you like, but i know for a fact that you can recieve just as good as an education at Millington. Millington is a very diverse school where students from all walks of life get along well. Sure there are a few bad seeds, but that is the case at any school. Im tired of people talking about millington like we're the armpit of the county. As for the principal situation, we have a new principal this year that is doing a great job. Millington Central is a great place to recieve an education, i know this because i go there. Thank you

Very disappointed in the Millillington School system. Many students disturb the classes, they are unruley and even rude to teachers. Seems this school system runs ona shoe string budget. We have sent our children to a local private school, it just didn't work out at MCH.

I went 9-11th grade here at millington. Let me tell ya, I absolutely hated the freshman academy. All it is- a small square with like 400 annoying freshman. they have a new 'main building', even that is crowded at times! I was also in band for those three years let's just say, the teacher doesn't push you enough, it's going downhill by the years. i was in color guard, and we pretty much taught ourselves. by the end of my junior year, we were down to three color guard members. my fave teachers- mr.strausser-psychology; ms.armour-spanish; mrs.wilhite-english! also, it seems as though the principal favors the choir more than any other activities at millington.

The school is ok and I know for a fact because i go there. They have between 8 to 10 buildings and a building just for the freshmen. They have a lot of activities like: boys and girls track, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, boys football, boys baseball, girls softball. They also have clubs, like Pep club, and Theatre.

MCHS is the best kept secret in northern Shelby County. During the past three years I have had the opportunity to have children in this school. The Freshman Academy is a wonderful 'school within a school' that allows freshmen the opportunity to 'grow into' the responsibilities and routines of high school before being tossed into a mix of upper classmen that can be intimidating. When they leave the academy they are fully prepared to meet the challenges of both regular and honors high school classes. Virtually all of the teachers that my children have had are excellent. Of course there have been one or two teachers that aren't quite up to par but they are few and far between. I was more that pleasantly suprised at what Millington High School had to offer.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
