    Outstanding school. The magnet themes are well supported with quality staff and excellent facilities. Principal and administrative team have high expectations for both students and staff. My child has excelled in the math program. Only wish is that school had students longer than two years.

    McMillan is a good school. They offer many opportunities for extracurricular activities. They have an outstanding mathematics and technology curriculum. However I was appalled at the Spanish class. The teacher was not giving enough challenging work for my child.
