I am really exited with the new changes this year. I hope that they will help the children improve academically and socially. I wish there was more communication and options for children with behavioral concerns. I think that Mills is a great school but there is always room for improvement.

Mills Elementary is staffed by professional, caring individuals who have helped to create a fulfilling educational experience for my children. There are great enrichment programs, and the student-to-teacher ratio provides additional opportunities for my children to be encouraged to reach and surpass their goals.

Posted August 20, 2013

My school is still up in the air. It is our first year here and we are only on day two. As far as our experience so far has been wishy washy. We did not get any detailed information on who our son's teacher until a half hour before school started. For new students that would be a big relief to know the name of our son's teacher before the first day of school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 20, 2013

I like the staff here as they are very positive and encouraging to the kids. In past experiences my step daughter learned a lot and was completely ready for junior high!
