    Wonderful teacher who compromise with the students to learn whatever takes for them to reach the goal. Kida re first no matter what.

    Wow. My child comes home and tells us all about school. As a parent I am relieved that there is zero tolerance for bullying and that my child is taught until mastery. I wish schools like Mills existed when I was a kid!

    My grandchildren attend this school one in the 3rd grade and one in Kindergarten. Both are learning the necessary skills to function well in life. Not only are they satisfactorily being taught the academics but they are learning acceptable behavior & life skills that will help to promote right choices well into adulthood. They are consistently rewarded for good behavior through positive re-enforcement. Mills is a leader in laying the proper foundation for my grandchildren as they grow daily and learn to live and function in the fast-paced society of today.

    I love how they teach Great Expectations. I love how the teachers truly care about the students and strive to make learning fun and something the students want to do.

    We love this school. My oldest transferred after 2 years to go to Barnes because of TACK & we wish we had never left. My other 3 will go to Mills (even though they will qualify for TACK). Great principal & teachers! You will be lucky to go to Mills

    We moved to this school from another Owasso school last year. It is absolutely wonderful! The staff and teachers are great! The Principal Mrs.Casey is so encouraging to the kids and inspiring to them as well. All the teachers my son had made him so excited about each day it was always fun. It is a great elementary school experience.

    This school is AMAZING! My daughters recently went to a Broken Arrow school which was very behind and the teachers there helped them alot. The only thing they didn't like was the school lunches.
