The teachers, staff, and administration are devoted to each individual child's education and well-being. The Physical Education, Music, and Art Department are lead by excellent teachers of great character and integrity. Of all the schools I have been involved with, Millington Elementary is by far the best!

Great school overall but my biggest concern is that they rarely inform the parents about events that are going on and if we do find out it is very last-minute. It's almost like they assume that we know what's going on at the school from a day-to-day basis. We are very hilly informed about meetings are ceremonies or field trips. Been a few times where I wasn't even notified about an event until that day when an automated phone call came in. Other than the major communication issue the school is great.

Our son attended this school from Kindergarten all the way through fourth grade. The teachers and staff care about the students. They go out of their way to ensure the students have the tools they need to learn and feel safe. I was amazed that after only two weeks in Kindergarten the office staff knew his name! He enjoyed his classes and his teachers every year, and he learned how to get along well with others and use his manners too! I highly recommend this school and I suggest that parents at all schools become involved as volunteers, whether on the PTA/PTO board or just helping in the office or classrooms. More parent involvement would make this great school even more terrific! Even those working full time can help. Just ask!

I have worked here for going on five years and I love it. I absolutely wake up every morning excited about work! All the teachers and staff are kind and caring. They make sure every child is loved as well as educated. The old saying goes "If you love your job, you"ll never work a day." That is certainly true here!

I am a parent and a staff member. I believe we have the best staff and teachers. Our teachers work hard daily to provide a safe and encouraging education experience. The school building and grounds are clean and well kept. I would encourage any family considering MES as their home elementary school, come in any day and see us in action. Our teachers and staff are superheroes.

A 1 awesome year experience in our lifes (2011-2012)... I tried private and public schools, but I was never satisfy. My dad used to tell me that I was never going to find a perfect school. Today and always, I AM VERY HAPPY to say that I found that perfect school, better yet, that OUTSTANDING SCHOOL! I am VERY GRATEFUL of Millington Elementary School, they really care about children's education and wellness. We will remember them always, specially Mrs. Green. Please, keep it that way. Hooyah!!!

My children were fortunate to attend this school! All the staff are caring and super nice, teachers are hard working and loving, Mr. Lunsford is very dedicating and full of energy. I saw him working over time a lot. Children learn positive attitude by all the teachers with a pride as professional educator.

Great School. They seem to care about the students. They now have not one but two playgrounds. The principal has made a lot of changes in the two years he has been there. The kids seem to really love him. They have some really good teachers also. I would give this school a very high rating.

We're Navy - and we have transferred a lot. Millington Elementary is a good school and I'm happy my child has gone to now 2 years (finished K and now finished with both 1st & 2nd). Teachers have been fantastic. The pace was good and he never seemed bored: class sizes were good. Facility itself (classrooms, cafeteria) is outstanding. Even though Shelby County, bus transpo for the children great - very safe and consistent. Two things I don't understand - as a new school, I don't understand why there's still not a playground (one expected this summer) after 2-years' massive fund-raising efforts. The other problem would be in 'communication'. Last year a dramatic change for the worst in advance notice of upcoming events, holiday schedules, school. Website outdated, etc.

millington elem is a good school but now even better since Mr.Lunsford took over as principal.I have 4 children,2 moved up to middle and 2 more to go.Since Mr.Lunsford has takened over i see better changes,more participation from parents and kids, and if a situation should arise he will handle it with the upmost respect and discretion as needed.I wish there are more principals like him!

This is the best school my kids have ever gone to.My daughter had to repeat kindergarten do to a traumatic incident that happen at another school.She was very withdrawn and shy.The school placed her with a great teacher and she came out of her shell!This was another great year for her at MES. She had another great teacher and caught up and learned to read! I now have Three children at MES and they all have great teachers.The principle does a great job at treating everyone fair and is just a great guy.The staff in the office,lunch room,and councilors are all wonderful. I stay in this area just for the school. There is nothing else to say except I appreciate all the love and care they give my girls while educating them.You all are great!

My daughter started off her kindergarten year in this school. She loved it and even after we moved she still talks about how much fun she had there. We will be going back to this school in 2008 and hopefully she will continue to like it. I thought academically they could have pushed her more since she knew almost everything needed already to pass kindergarten. They also did not have a playground for the kids yet (new school)which i thought was weird, but my daughter didn't seem to mind so much.

Millington Elementary has been and still is fantastic school! It is one of Shelby County's best kept secrets. The faculty and staff work hard to help the students and parents. The academis programs are excellent! The extracurricular activities are taught by competent teachers sho put the children first. The level of parent involvement is improving because of the Leadership of the PTA. The mothers and dads who work on the PTA Board are wonderful! Millington Elementary is a school that puts the children first no matter what they can or cannot do! All children are loved!
