My three grandchildren have gone to Millsap Elementary School. When they first moved to the area they were facing a new school, new friends, new teachers. They found Millsap to be a very welcoming school with wholesome students and friendly teachers. Their classes and the afterschool program have given them the creative and diverse experiences and education that a private school would provide. As a grandmother, I am very pleased with this school.

I absolutely love this school for sooo many reasons! The children are amazing; the staff is supportive and always willing to give of themselves. Mostly, my boys have gained more from this school than from any other. The school spirit they teach every day is doing wonders for the kids! I can't thank the administration and teachers for all that they do to make a difference for ALL children!

Millsap Elementary School is an excellent school. The staff works hard to meet the needs of the children and provide a safe, caring environment for learning. With a new elementary campus being built with state of the art technology, etc., this school will be an front runner in educational technology combined with teachers who care. What could be better?

This school is fantastic. They have dedicated, hard-working teachers that have a true passion for helping children. This school is a hidden 'gem' among other more well-known schools. A caring, knowledgable staff plus a supportive administration make this campus top-notch!
