Many of the teachers are so caring and go the extra mile to make sure their students' succeed. My kids enjoy the academics and the sports programs at the school. A special shout-out to Mr. Green who helped my daughter with math last year. Thank you.

Millbrook High School is a step in the wrong direction. Academics here are the bare minimum. Teachers do not care about students and guidance counselors are nowhere to be seen. The place is a retention pool for white trash and great students are masked by the stink of the majority, who care nothing of their academics or the school itself. Classes have extremely low expectations and workload. The amount of students dropping out is surprising considering how easy classes are. Students here are not prepared for college and most end up working jobs instead of pursuing careers. The school's sex education program is comical. Mostly relying on urban legends and abstinence as opposed to teaching accurate information or safe sex. The SOL scores are abysmal as well. If you want your child to succeed in life, stay away from all Frederick County schools.

I am a Substitute teacher at this school and have found it to be a wonderful place of both learning and wisdom. The students are really friendly, observant and eager to learn and have a great deal of school spirit. I also coordinate a poetry event in Winchester and have a lot of Millbrook High students participating in that. It is a great school to be a part of!
