This is our second year at Mill Run and we have been very pleased with the caliber of the teachers and staff. One thing I really like is the various ways they keep you informed of events happening - no chance you'll forget!

Mill Run is an exceptional elementary school! Principal Paul Vickers knows almost every child by name and makes EVERY family feel important and part of the school community. "It takes a village to raise a child" is certainly evident in the effort that the entire Mill Run community makes to be involved in our children's education and growth.

We are delighted with what Mill Run has to offer, true to its motto: 'where children always come first'. The teachers are dedicated and school environment is very conducive for children to be themselves and to offer their best. It has a Principal who is a good leader and in my humble opinion, it is one of the best!

Our 2 songs have attended Mill Run for 4 and 5 years. We love it! Principal, Assistant Principal, teachers and staff are the best. We are surely going to miss Mill Run.

Best school our kids have attended, we moved to Loudoun County for the schools and this is our 3rd move within the county to find the 'right' school - I couldn't ask for anything more than Mill Run (and Eagle Ridge Middle School) have provided.

My daughter who is in 1st grade loves going to school everyday. The teachers and staff make learning fun! She is in the Steps to Literacy program this year and the reading specialists are amazing!!! 4 months into school and she's already reading so much better. They really work hard at helping your child love to learn!

My two sons attended Mill Run for a period of two years. The academic programs is very good with strong emphasis on performance.Teachers were very caring and supportive. The principal and office staff were indifferent and aloof there seems to be no communication between the two.

Both of my children attended Mill Run. It is a very friendly, community-oriented school. The principal is warm and caring, and that atmosphere permeates the school. The staff is very hard-working. After school homework clubs and SOL remediation classes are offered most of the year. Although it is a large school (over 900 students), the principal and office staff knew my children's names from Day 1. The teachers and staff are very dedicated to success. After school homework clubs and SOL remediation classes are offered most of the year. The student body is very diverse, and the school consciously builds upon that strength by encouraging events such as an International Festival, an International Cookbook, etc. The Special Education program is very good. The school librarian was recently recognized for excellence. Academically, my children were well-prepared for honors courses in middle school when they left Mill Run. Go Mountain Lions!

Mill Run is a phenomenal place to be! My daughter is in 3rd grade and is excelling in every subject. The staff is outgoing and friendly. The principal is very involved. As soon as you walk in you're welcomed as part of the Mill Run family!
