    Former student. School is corrupt. During my tenure (08-10) I graduated early since I didn't want to waste my time at a glorified daycare at which there were at least a dozen 'vice principals' who would spend their days chasing around the kids who wanted to skip school by hiding under the upper class men's cars in the parking lot. Public school systems that pay their principals north of 100k per year (August - may) and leave their classrooms and teachers without sufficient resources is sickening

    MHS has been a wonderful school for my two children. The IB magnet status has simply made it even better. Ms. King and the staff are outstanding and on top of any issues. The PTSA is the best I've seen and do an excellent job with fundraising and supporting the teaching staff. The staff PTSA and many parent volunteers are supportive of all students through clubs sports tutoring mentor program etc. MHS is a very caring and encouraging environment to help every child succeed.

    The leadership at this school is terrific. My daughter spent 8 years in private school before becoming a freshman at Millbrook last year. Millbrook has been a breath of fresh air for her. She loves it there and has continued to do well in class. We are so grateful that the IB Programme has arrived and look forward to the rewarding challenge it will offer her.

    Millbrook continues to do great job preparing its students for whatever they choose to do after high school. The new IB program offers even more opportunities for its students. we are lucky to have this school in our community.

    Millbrook has a staff more dedicated than any other school I or my children have been to. The IB program coming to Millbrook within the next few years promises to bring even greater opportunities for students at this school.

    This is my daughter's sophomore year at Millbrook. She came from a private school where she graduated in a 8th grade class of less than 50 students. Although it took some adjustment in her freshman year she is very happy at Millbrook. As a parent I believe the key to a student's success is for them to become involved with school sports clubs and basically any type of extra-curricular activity being offered to them. They will then have pride in their school and for the most part (in their core classes anyway) be among a great group of kids! It's certainly all about choices. The most recent awarding of the IB program at Millbrook can only bring great things to our school. GO WILDCATS!

    Millbrook was the best school ever. The teachers pushed us to become the best that they knew that we could be. I graduated in 2005 and I still miss Millbrook. Even though we had alot of nuckle heads the teachers still tried to help them. I've never seen any teachers nor the rest of the staff give up on the trouble making students. Now the sports have actually went down within the last couple of years. But I still attend many of the games and alot of the other ALUMNI. Millbrook ROCKS

    I will be a senior at Millbrook this year and I absolutely love it! Everyone is always willing to help if you ever need anything. To obtain strong relationships with the staff and administration you have to get involved in the school. That is one thing I stress to parents and students who ask me about the school. What you put into the school is what you'll get out of it. I hold offices in many clubs I am on the tennis team and I also started a tutoring program last year. There are always going to be bad things about schools but in Millbrooks case the pros outweigh the cons by thousands. The past year students have really come together to cheer on our amazing football & basketball teams the students also make others feel like they are part of the school by reaching out.

    I have had 4 children go to this school and I am very satisfied. Millbrook is strong in all areas and have many diverse things to offer students of different abilities. The school appears to be graded below its present status. the academics athletics drama dept and total staff is outstanding by any measure.

    The current adminstration has run this school into the ground--very focused on flash not substance. The morale of teachers is low and the turnover rate has skyrocketed in the past few years. Teachers have started to quit midyear. The school is not safe and the classes are taught to the low achieving students. My gifted child is offered nothing here. There are no set policies; things change all the time. Very confusing

    Great school great sports med program and academics

    Although Millbrook was not the best school I came out as a high performing student. The school cannot be blamed for everything. There were plenty of wonderful teachers and students. The administrative staff wasn't that great but the teachers were memorable (in a good way). My teachers pushed me to be the college student that I am today. A lot of students however did make my high school experience less enjoyable. I am proud to have attended Millbrook High School!

    I am so disappointed that Millbrook offers so little in terms of course offerings. The school is way behind the curve compared to other high schools in academics. The fact that the teachers don't make the adjustments necessary emphasizes how lost this school really is.

    After having spent the last 4 years at Millbrook we are looking to move so our other 2 children do not have to attend. Millbrook is the laughing stock of local high schools. It's such a shame it used to be a quality school. It's not a safe campus and the environment does not foster respect for students or teachers.

  • (8 years ago)

    Inadequate leadership on staff at this school. Administrators prefer to pass issues to some one else rather that handle an issue themselves. This school is too large too impersonal and really doesn't care about the children and families they serve. Don't let the new renovations deceive you.

    Horible! Poor leadership and Horible teachers.
