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.
Millington Elementry is a wonderful school, my two children attend one is in Pre- K the other is in Kindergarten. The teachers there are so wonderful and friendly. They always make you feel welcome and my children have learned so much. Im glad that my children attend a wonderful school.
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 Website outdated, etc.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gone to.My daughter had to repeat kindergarten do to a traumatic incident that happen at another school.She was very withdrawn and shy.The school placed her with a great teacher and she came out of her shell!This was another great year for her at MES.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!
The staff has changed this year and is even better. Overall a good school that is newly built. The teachers are very caring and encouraging. Parental involvement is very high. My children love it and thy have made many new friends!
