My twins went to first grade here and just loved the school! The teachers were warm, knowledgeable and you could tell they really enjoyed their job. We met some of the higher grade teachers during various programs and their enthusiasm was amazing. Plus they had so many programs available outside of the school curriculum that the kids always had stuff to do that they enjoyed and the programs worked well with the school so transitions to those programs were seamless.

I went to Mill Creek Elementary 20 years ago, and I finally got to move my kids back into the school this year. The teachers are phenomenal, and I'm so glad they're working with Junior Achievement! They focus on career and business skills in addition to regular academics. I couldn't be happier to be back in Mill Creek!

I feel very comfortable with my three sons' teachers. They make you feel welcome to be in their classrooms.. They are very responsive, communicative and warm. They do their best to give your children a nurturing learning environment and tailor their programs to meet their specific needs. We are glad that my kids can be in this school.

Mill Creek Elementary is one of the best schools in the area for academics and a nurturing environment. The administration is responsive and does a good job of budgeting and child/teacher placement. There is a high level of parent involvement. However, I did not feel the district personnel were supportive of the particular needs in this southern part of the district ,which is aligned more with Seattle and college-bound kids.

We chose our house because it was in the Mill Creek Elementary area, and we are so grateful we did. My son has been in the Highly Capable program and is doing very well, and my second son loves his regular class also. The teachers, administration and staff are not only very good at their jobs, but excited about the school and absolutely love the kids. The special programs the school puts on - the Veteran's Day program and the Spring Music Extravaganza - really get the kids excited to show what they've learned. The parents have really made the school a great community for kids to be in - there are parent volunteers everyday at the school, and the PTA is a powerhouse that really works to fund what the district or state doesn't pick up. We Love This School!

Mill Creek is better than private schools I have had my children in. Top notch.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
